  8. Hi everyone, Finished this one just after the Invader, so thought I`d subject you to some photo`s My latest attempt at Academy`s 1/48 P-47N kit Finished to represent a Very Long Range Thunderbolt to go with my VLR Mustang I did a bit ago As usual, mostly from the box contents with a few embellishments here and there. The biggest one was to make the front of the engine more like a P-47N one....... .......so I chopped the front off the Academy engine and cobbled a new one together from bits and pieces from the spares box, stretched sprue etc smaller changes include: reshaping the propeller blades, replace gun barrels with metal tube, brake pipes, ignition harness and tank braces from wire The decals came from Super Scale International sheet 48-956 and went on beautifully Hope you enjoy the pic`s, thanks for looking Cheers Russ
  9. Beautifully finished Jug there Mike and the three look great together
  10. Hi Ad, Sorry I didn`t, there`s nothing too technical going on: On my first attempt ( the Farmgate one ) I`d already fitted the nose before deciding it wasn`t right, so I just chopped the nose off at the joint and made new ones. On this one, I glued some plastic sheet on the inside of the nose where the cut outs are, then when the nose and shim were fitted and dry I just used a bit of filler to smooth it all out. Cheers Russ
