Hasegawa 1/32 P-47D Bubbletop

Recommended Posts

All-

 

Here's my recently completed Hasegawa 1/32 P-47D Bubbletop. She was a shelf of doom sitter for almost two years; I had completed one in these markings prior, but ruined it with a bad wash. I wanted to rebuild it, lost my mojo, and then decided to finish it about a month ago. She has Eduard photoetch, Barracudacast wheels, and Lifelike Decals. I painted the invasion stripes too far outboard on the wings, but shhhh... don't tell anyone! Weathered with acrylics and Tamiya weathering kits. Comments and critiques are welcome!

Whom I hope to made the same errors you said on my P47 Bubbletop in wip!

Spectacular work, I love it :frantic:. A q: I'm not an expert so why only one star on starboard top wing but two underwings?

US ground attack aircraft in WWII after D-Day started carrying more insignia on the bottom to aid with ground recognition of friendly aircraft. It was fairly unique to P-47's, but they were mostly ground attack aircraft after the Mustang began taking over bomber escort duties full time. HTH.

Nice one, great build and the NMF looks perfect (not too shiny nor too dull) and as invasion stripes are something that I tend to avoid I would not have known if you had not mentioned it !

 

Cheers
