Hi all,

I bought the Redux version of the Razorback.

I assume it's the same mold as Trumpeter.

Does the Trump kit have transparant fuselagehalves like some other kits have ? It seems a pitty to hid all that innerdetail once build.

If it does have such parts.Can someone spare one half ? I might do a one side painted/one side transparant P-47.

Hi Erwin,

Unfortunately Trump didn't bring out such a Razorback (yet...), so indeed it is pity you'll have to hide all that detailing behind a closed fuselage, or..........you could try and make some "cut-outs" here and there (just the way Chris in Germany displayed many of his models), actually it should be possible without too much trouble :P

have fun building,


cheers,
Jack.

everyone in the circuit switch off your radios....now switch 'em back on again......

The "cut-away" idea crossed my mind to.

It all depends on how the detailparts turn out after building, painting and such.

Then maybe,just maybe I might concider doing it.

But as I told you at the convention I'm use to building easy kits like Revell.

This kit has more parts than all my builds I did in 2007 put together.

So this P-47 will be a longterm project for this year.

Doing small subbuilds as I 'm doing other more "fast-building " kits too.

Silly indeed. Trump does it on some 24 th kits which have lesser detail than the P-47 kit.

Doesn't make sence to have all those inner parts lost of view once build.

About the same time i think, i got mine late last year and another on ebay real cheap this year bout a month ago from France as well
a little more but hte wheels and definitely the decals make it worth it.

Otherwise 'cept the box of corse its no different to the Trump kit.
