Well the first 16 are done and up now at www.flying-legends.net
They are not perfect as the area of checks under the tail on the long marked versions will testify but it nearly drove me crazy so I had to either settle or lose interest! Hopefully its not too noticeable. They each include a marked blank of the aircraft for flight numbers.
The short tail markings are shown on the -5-NT version using the "no-tail fillet" mod but are equally at home on the unmodded versions as the fillet was retro-fitted to 325th aircraft as time passed.
My sources were "Checkertails" by Ernest R. McDowell (Squadron/signal publications) and the website www.325thfg.org my thanks to both as they were invaluable.
I will probably do more as the skinning bug has hit me again so watch this space.
So here are my first attempts at the "Checkertail clan":
