Eduard (Hasegawa) 1:32 P47D Thunderbolt "Dottie Mae"

Recommended Posts

Hi All

This is the Eduard Hasegawa 1:32 P47D Thunderbolt “Dottie Mae”

A really nice, easy kit to build. The only real issues were with the instructions which left out a couple of steps and were not particularly clear at some stages.

This was my first try with the Alclad shiny stuff – which was a steep learning curve, helped greatly by LSP members.

 

Here’s a link to the full build story:

 

And here’s some pics:

Outstanding job! Really like it! One small critique - and, it’s quite common to this a/c model. The leading edge of the engine cowling has four fasteners that should have the panel line filled in where the panel line goes through the fastener. Other than that she’s a beauty!

Cheers

That looks great man. :thumbsup: See Alclad isn't so tough to work with. ;) BTW, what did you use for the seat belts? They look so realistic.

Thanks John - I did have a lot of encouragement :D

The seat belts are Eduard's own that came with the kit - along with a fair amount of other PE bits.

Wow!  You should be exceptionally proud of that one Paul!   For whatever reason, I really like the big fuel tanks under the wings.  Really well done man. 

 

Thanks Brian - and the good thing is you can remove the dangly bits if you decide you don't like them as they"re held in with rubber gromets (can't remember the technical term!)

Thanks Alan. Now you come to mention it, I vaguely remembering reading about the fasteners somewhere - and looking at it again, it makes perfect sense. Next time ...
