Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my 1/72 Revell P-47D Thunderbolt, built from the box. I received this kit from the legacy of a fellow IPMS club member. The kit's box was badly crushed and torn, and every time I saw it in my stash I felt sorry for it. Looking for a 'quick build', I moved it to the workbench. The Revell model was released 20 years ago: https://www.scalemates.com/de/kits/revell-04155-republic-p-47d-30-thunderbolt--107126 It still holds up well today, with nice details and clean mouldings, and is a cheaper alternative to the Tamiya kit. Markings represent "Chuck's Wagon", an aircraft of 362nd Fighter Group, operating from Rouvres aifield (allied code A.82) in early 1945. The decals are from Eagle Strike (#72058, "362nd FG Jugs Pt.II"). Painted with Tamiya, Mr.Hobby and Alclad II. Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. "Chuck's Wagon" carried colorful wheel hubs. These were punched from plastic sheet and painted according to instructions. Thank you for your interest. Best greetings from Vienna! Roman
