Hi, i decided to show my new project which is older version of Thunderbolt. I will add Eduard etch for cockpit and cut out a panel on side to show guts behind engine. Trumpeter provided many interior goods so it's really a shame not to present them. Painting will be Pied Paper or Passionate Patsy, unfortunately Kagero done decals only for Bubbletop Patsy, so i have artwork only, without serial number on tail (problem) or code on side (smaller problem). Does anybody have photo of Razorback Patsy with 3 downed planes? I have seen model with that but have only photos where plane is without them. Seat is for P-400 Special Hobby but seems legit for P-47. I will need to repait it.
I bought this kit few years ago, before Eduard made their Limited Edition P-47 set, but i lost my appetite for this big fish . Now i have new airbrush from Gunze so it was a good time to check how it works. I used these additions for P-47: - Eduard resin wheels, - interior PE set, - RB model gun barrels, - Montex masks/decals
Hi, Here is my Trumpeter P-47D. I've started it a few months ago but i've put it aside for a few weeks. It's painted with various alclad, and the national markings are painted, too. The stencils are hobbydecal dry transfers, and the other markings are decals from kitworld (great decals as the film become almost invisible even on NMF). THere is no varnish on it, only a light wash of flory dark dirt (i've also tried to use enamel wash from AK or Mig, but dont do that if you have hobbydecal stencils as they do not survive the enamel thinner experience...) and then a light dusting with Mig pigment. The kit is the trumpeter P-47D with dorsal fin. It is not a bad kit, i've liked this build, even if there is a few small defects. The cockpit is detailed with the eduard PE set, some scratchbuild, HGW belts (or RB? i dont remember) and a resin gunsight from master details. THe wheels are from Barracuda, and they are great ! (but pretty difficult to make the paint stick on them, even with many degreasing operations). The engine cowl flaps are scratchbuilt as the kit part is totally messed up. The exhaust staining is done with some alclad burn metal colors and then with highly thined acrylic chocolate and mat black. Hope you like it !

I am building the MDC resin 'pit for the Hase' P-47D Bubble Top, and it truly is an amazing piece of model accessory. I can't imagine building the pathetic Hasegawa kit without it, but the instructions are fairly crude Xeroxed photo sheets. As such, I can't figure out where to put the PE crosshairs for the Mk. VIII gunsight. I notice that most photos of these sight do NOT have the crosshairs element. It looks as though the crosshairs are actually along side the tilted glass lens, but I can't be sure.
