P-47 colour scheme


We are looking at various schemes for TFC's P-47G, preferably a Duxford aircraft. Anybody got any neat photos which have not been published before?

Shown is "Roger the Lodger" on the PSP hardstanding.

hi have you guys thought about Frank Oiler’s Thunderbolt “Eileen”? i just saw pictures of a scale-model wearing the scheme on the hyperscale website.

"Eileen" is also on the possible list, as is "Okie".

Dunno if this helps or if you have seen it all before, but I came across an ancient Profile Publication (1965) when I was turning out my loft recently. There is a colour plate (not a photo) showing "Miss Behave", from the 78th FG based at Duxford. There are also several interesting colour schemes shown and actual photos but they are only B&W.

Also have the Fiat CR42 Profile with some interesting schemes if anyone is interested.
