48-005 Type 4 national Insignia and data Decals Pt1 for the P-47 Thunderbolt

Besides enough insignia to do 9 complete aircraft in multiple configurations, there is plenty of excess data that you won’t find on most decal sheets, either in the “box” or as aftermarket. Below are a few examples.

PROP DATA

Featured are 6 different blade types + an extra 13’ Symmetrical with different data presentation.

There are enough blade specific decals to do 4 sets of each type. Plenty of accurate Curtiss Electric logos and plenty of spare Hamilton Standard logos using gold ink background that makes them stand out.

Hamilton Standard 13’ diameter blades, utilizing the most common white data. The image doesn’t do justice to the logo.

There are 8 sets of flap indicators. These are particularly useful for the Tamiya P-47 series as the kit allows for lowered flaps.
