P-47D - 1st Brazilian Fighter Squadron - Jambock B4 Silver - 2nd Lt.Dornelle (update vs 1.2 - Covers all P-47D Models)

A bit of History:
The First Brazilian Fighter Group was created in 1943. The training was performed by the Forward Echelon in Florida, then as a Group in P-40s in Aguadulce, Panama, and Suffolk, New York, flying P-47s. It had a Squadron size.
During the World War II , the Group was attached to the 350th Fighter Group in Italy as the 4th squadron (1944-1945). It was based initially in Tarquinia and later in Pisa. Due to low on replacements, the pilots extended the Tour of Duty until the war end.
"Jambock" was the callsign used by the Brazilian Fighter Group during the war and still is in used today (flying F-5EM and F-5FM). "Jambock" name has an Indonesian/South African origin (sjanbok or Sambok) and means "animal skin or wood whip". It was a kind of whip.

About this Livery:
The livery is as historical as possible.
2nd Lt Luis Lopes Dornelles flew 89 mission in combat during the war. He was shot down and KIA on his 89th mission flying Cap Newton Lagares airplane, the "Black 2" P-47D-30RE SN 42-1093.

This Silver B4 was the plane mostly used by Lt Dornelles, also a P-47-30RE SN 44-20800, it has 88 missions markings because the 89th was not completed on it. At the Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Aerospace Museum, we have the second B4, an olive drab, with the painting of SN 42-26766 that is in pristine conditions and with the 89 missions markings to honor Lt. Dornelles memory (in fact, this SN was show down by Flak).
Dornelles became the last Jambock to be KIA in the War. He was leading a flight when he was shot down strafing Alexandria Rail Yard.
I had the honor to visit his crash site on 2017 and made a home movie about it with my pictures telling the history. I recommend this video down bellow.

The Patch on the nose means:
- Ostrich - Brazilians can take and handle anything;
- Hat - The Brazilian Air Force Pilot;
- Shield - The Thunderbolt toughness and the Pilot protection;
- Blue and the 5 Stars - Brazilian Sky and the "South Cross constellation";
- Pistol - the Jug fire-power;
- Cloud - the airspace, "the pilot's floor";
- Red Background - the blood of the Brazilians WIA and KIA;
- "Senta a Púa!" - Group Motto and means "Go for it!" in a "free translation";
Later, after the war, it was added a Flak Cloud to represent the enemy AAA.

Feedback is well accepted. Btw, there is a texture problem on the side insignias that I could not solve. The rearmost part of the lateral insignias are kind metallic. I think it will be solved with the future template.


All the best,

Sydy
