    I have a Revell P-47D kit, 1:48 scale, Thunderbolt Razorback for “The Bug”. I am trying to find a source for a set of decals to adapt the plane to the markings for “Little Lulu” of the 510th Fighter Squadron. The father (Lt Col Bruce Parcell) of a good friend of mine was KIA on 7/24/1944 while flying “Little LuLu” in combat over France. I want to present his daughter and only child with a model of his Thunderbolt. IPMS member Dick Smith displayed a model of “LL” with the authentic decals. I’m wondering where he found that particular detail set.

    A set containing Lulu can be purchased through ngraser@comcast.net or Thundercals@yahoo.com..
