    Nice pair of 1/32 Jug's

    Really nice pair of P47s. They must be huge in 1/32. Are they the Trumpy decs, they have settled down beautifully? I have several Hobbyboss kits of various aircraft and the decals have all been great so far. Rick
  3. Thanks for taking the time to comment guys. Tamiya’s P47 is such a great kit though I did also enjoy putting a Hasegawa Razorback together a few years back. Must give the Academy kit a go unless anyone has reservations?
  4. Cheers guys, she was real fun to build, top notch Tamiya Rick

    1/48 P47D Razorback

    Thanks for the comment Hairtrigger. For you and anyone else wanting to see the full set of photos I have reposted properly on a newer posting.

    Kittyhawk RF-101C 1/48

    Really nice NMF. I have got to get me a 101 but probably a Monogram from all the adverse kit comments.
  7. 2nd post and its Tamiya's excellent P47D. I have a number of built jugs of different flavours but I think I like the Razorbacks the best, they just look so businesslike and lethal. Again this is a mixture of Gunze and Tamiya acrylics. Alclad prop boss as I recall, she's a few years old now. I flattened the tyres and gave her an Albion alloys pitot. She's finished in a semi satin sheen (galleria) as I find that too flat a finish can kill all the effort spend with post shading. Thanks for looking.
  8. 2nd attempt. Hopefully these will show. Modelling is easier than posting .....on an iPad !

    1/48 P47D Razorback

    I realise what I just did, I think, been struggling with Flickr and the iPad interface. I will try this again later.

    Eduard P40N Warhawk 1/48

    Thanks for the enlightenment regarding the Banshee reference. Looking at it with fresh eyes the tyres are in need of a rework. They have nice tread detail and are crying out for some special love, I may break out the pastel shades! If I’m feeling lucky I may give the exhaust a go too. Breathe some new life into the old gal. Thanks all for looking.

    Eduard P40N Warhawk 1/48

    Thanks for the comment. Never heard Banshee before in relation to a P40. Gonna look that up tomorrow- bedtime in UK

    Eduard P40N Warhawk 1/48

    It's an older kit brought up to muster by the usual excellent Eduard goodies, resin, etch and fab decal options. My copy had a badly warped wing which now has (thin) alloy reinforcing to bring it back into shape. That part of the build was a struggle as I remember!
  15. Hi there, My first post is a kit that I built a few years ago. It's the profipack repop of the Mauve 1/48 P40. Post shaded and chipped, the effect is quite (maybe too) subtle. Gunze Aqueous is my paint of choice at the moment. Its quite a clean build, I may revisit at some point and add exhaust stains but I just loved the skull motif and didn't want to f....., well you know. Really enjoyed building the kit. Comments welcome. Rick
