Caracal did some great sheets in 1/48. Not sure if Kursad is someone you can work with further decals but he had a navy sheet and an AF sheet.

Sigh, yup, off to get a Trumpy late model Spad.  I have the early Korean bird and a ZM USAF bird, but will need a new one for this project. Thanks Paul. For your trouble you've just made it necessary to expand my home. 

And away goeth my ammo budget for 2 or 3 days...

Oh wow...best news I've heard in ages..

 

Really hoped Trumpy would have given us a AD-5/A-1E/G kit anyway...but if i have to go aftermarket I'm glad its you doing the conversion atleast we know the quality will be top notch.

 

Now could we talk you into a AD-4N/NA  with the internal crew station and fuselage airbrake delete too?

Which Trumpy kit would be the best one to purchase to do this conversion with?  Last thing I want to do is get the wrong one.

Thanks

Jerry

Very appropriate use of a Fisher aircraft with a Fisher product...
