Squadron doesn't show any. rollmodels don't break down the sheets or show pictures. Looks like your out of luck, unless you can piece them together.

 I may get so drunk, I have to crawl home. But dammit, I'll crawl like a Marine.

I recommend Mike Grant Decals if you want to investigate custom decals.

His website is: www.mikegrantdesign.com/decals

He can create decals from photographs or your art work.

He did a fantastic job on the decals for my uncle's B-24, "The Chambermaid".

Mike is working on some decals for me too. I just traded e-mails with him. He has received your request.

Enjoy.
