  1. Here is my build of Tamiya's P-47D Bubble-top in 1/48 scale. Kit went together with usual Tamiya quality and really was rather straight forward. Finished in AK Xtreme Metals Polished Aluminium and I used Mircoscale aftermarket decals. Please feedback and critique more than welcome. Added some images of the bubble top with the razorback.
  2. Hi Everyone I’m calling the Wicked Wabbit done. This is the truly excellent Tamiya 1/48 scale P-47 and it’s been in a state of partial completion for about four years, wish I’d just settled down and got it done in one session. It’s also the first time I’ve used a Montex mask and wet transfer set and it won’t be the last, they really are superb and make the model sing. Other than that, the model is basically out the box except for the seat belts which are home made. Hope you like it.. Kind regards Trace
  3. Hi again, time to present another model made in 2020. The Academy-kit is superb in terms of details, not so much in terms of decals. Luckily, Kits World Decals offers great aftermarket decals, so I decided to give it a go. I also like the subject a lot One thing I would do differently now would be to drill out the guns. Thanks for looking, comments & criticism always welcome!

  6. A 1/48 scale Tamiya kit build of Major George Bostwick’s extremely colourful P-47M ‘Hotrod’ Thunderbolt as it was in mid-1945 after shooting down a Messerschmitt Me-262A jet. To celebrate this feat, it was marked with the addition of a black cowling band to the already colourful 56th Fighter Group dark blue and light blue scheme. Spent rather longer on the weathering and chipping than usual for this build as without it, this scheme tended to look rather too ‘cartoony’ for my taste. Pleased with the end result though

  11. Hello, While researching the famous P-47C (HV-P, BuNo. 41-6235) flown by Lt. Robert 'Bob' Johnson of 61st FS / 56th FG, i noticed a discrepancy between the artwork and the only photo (known to me) depicting the nose: Where's the "Half Pint" inscription in the photo? The area looks a bit different, so it might be over-painted (?) source: American Air Museum in britain source: Reddit
  12. Hey all, Hope you're all keeping sane-(ish) in lockdown! Here's my latest finish, Tamiya's excellent quarter-scale 'bolt finished with Thunder-cals new ETO set for all things thunderbolt, otherwise the only additions made were in purchasing Eduard's LooK set which include both an instrument panel and a set of their steel seatbelts. The aircraft was painted with Mr. Colour acrylics and finished as 'Snafu' as based at RAF Duxford. Many thanks for looking! Sam
  13. Hy friends, as the end of the year is approaching, it is time to finish the started projects. The model is probably well known to everyone, the casting is nice and I had no problems working. The P-47 is by far my favorite WWII aircraft. This is my sixth P-47, which I completed, but after the New Year we move on. Here are the pictures, enjoy.
  14. Good morning from chilly but sunny South Central Texas! I just now found this footage, and thought some of you might enjoy looking at it. The P-47 razorback footage shows the aircraft in their early markings, and you will notice that many appear to have been waxed, which was fairly common early on for more speed. I think these are early P-47D's from the 56th and 4th FG's. The P-38's I think are from the 55th FG. I have also posted a link to a very nice website that has details of the production variants of the P-47D and other reference material that might be useful for modelers, as well as a third link that has footage of P-38's, P-47's, and P-51's beating up Luftwaffe airfields after being detached from the bombers.

  16. Löök Resin Instrument Panels & Seatbelts – January 2019 Eduard 1:32 Continuing their line in the LOOK series of instrument panels, Eduard have released two more sets. These are for the 1:32 Eduard/Hasegawa Curtiss P40N-1, and Republic P-47D. As with the previously released sets, the modeller is provided, in these cases with the main instrument panel. Each set also includes a sheet of etched steel for the seat belts. The panels have all the correct markings and placards painted on them and the faces of each instrument is glazed, making them look very realistic, particularly with a bit of weathering to get away from that newly built look. Conclusion This series is a great resource for those of us who are unable to replicate all the markings on a panel, all in one easy package. They are certainly a neat and innovative idea from the masters of aftermarket. Review sample courtesy of
  17. Here's my Hasegawa 1:72 Republic P-47D-10-RE Thunderbolt which I built back in 2004. It represents 42-75008, “88” flown by Lt. Col. Robert Baseler, of the 325th FG, in Foggia, Italy, in early 1944. It was an OOB build. Thanks for looking Miguel

  19. Hi everybody, my recent completion: P-47D 42-7937, 62nd Fighter Squadron, 56th Fighter Group, 8th Air Force, Lt. Anthony R. Carcione, late 1943. The stereotypical USAAF aircraft as we imagine it carried some nose art, so when I decided to do a P-47, I was looking for one with either a cartoon figure or a pin-up. Finding a meaningful photo and the corresponding decal sheet can be frustrating at times, but finally, I settled for this aircraft that even displayed two dames, one more appropriately dressed than the other. This particular aircraft is quite well documented; apart from several photos it was also captured on film and appeared in the wartime documentary „Ramrod to Emden“ (www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_5ELQhzrPA). You can see LM-Q at about 32:05 in this clip. Part of the cowling with the nose art even survived to this day and apparently can be seen in a museum in Suffolk. This aircraft is representative of the moment when the 8th Air Force’s strategic bombing campaign against Germany was still teetering on a knife-edge, and the P-47s and P-38s struggled to protect the bombers during the most crucial points of the campaign. The puny P-51 only took over the role of the Thunderbolts and Lightning later. This is Tamiya’s 1/72 kit, and it is, of course, of the highest quality. The fit of the canopy is actually so tight that I couldn’t remove it again after test-fitting. The decals were included in the booklet Nigel Julian/Peter Randall/Zbigniew Kolacha, 56th Fighter Group. Part 1 (AJ Press), which I highly recommend. The red-bordered stars neither come with the kit nor the booklet, so I used a separate decal sheet by Experts Choice. One of the nice things about modelling is that you really learn new things about your subject. In this case, I learned that early and late D-models differ regarding the cooling flaps. On the later production blocks (and most likely the majority of all Thunderbolts built) the lower two flaps on each side are cut back and therefore narrower than the other flaps. The Tamiya kit and I guess every other kit has this later variant. 42-7937, however, was one of the early production blocks. Unfortunately, I discovered this only when I had already started airbrushing the model. So some meticulous last-minute cutting, puttying, adding of plastic sheet and sanding was due. Otherwise, this aircraft also needed a whip antenna instead of the antenna mast supplied with the kit. Now somebody should build an even earlier 56th FG P-47C with the yellow-bordered insignia without bars. Every comment welcome.
  20. Republic P-47 Thunderbolt Kagero TopDrawings 50 One of the latest books in their TopDrawing series, this fifteen page softback is filled with line drawings and a selection of colour plates. Concentrating on the D-25, D-27, D-30 and D-40 models each drawing is annotated, describing the differences between each model, although admittedly some of the differences, particularly when comparing drawings on the same page are difficult to this untrained eye to make out. The line drawings are very nicely done though, and show all the access panels, panel lines and other details. All the line drawings and colour plates are in 1:48, with the exception of the drawings of the engine, instrument panels and weapons, some of which are in 1:24 scale. The book also comes with an A3 pull out showing the upper and lower views of a D-25 on one side and a D-30 on the other. A nice addition is the small mask sheet to be used with 1:48 scale models. Conclusion This is a very nice, well laid out book. As with other books in the series, this one should be used along with other reference material to ensure the accuracy of your model.

  21. Greetings Folks, Its been a while since i posted anything following the Matchbox GB. Here is my latest effort, Academy's Thunderbolt Nose Art Edition. The option i chose was the one on the box top the well known Big A$$ed Bird 2 flown by Major Howard Parks. Although this is not as perfect a kit as the Tamiya version it built up without any problems whatsoever IMHO a very nice kit. I built it OOTB but used a set of Hobbyboss decals i had in the stash as Academy's aren't the best in my experience. The entire model is brush painted using Revell acrylics. Masking was a bit of a chore but it appears to have been worth the effort in the end. Here's the pics... IMG_2736 IMG_2732 IMG_2734 IMG_2735 IMG_2733 IMG_2731 Well thats it for now, see ya later, and thanks for looking. Cheers Greg
  22. I'm just starting to model an aircraft attached to 135 Sq. RAF in May 1945, a Thunderbolt P-47D-22. And I want to model it on a specific day, May 2, 1945, when 135 Sq. strafed the beaches south of Rangoon in support of the Operation Dracula landing. I'm trying to decide what sort of drop tanks I need on this aircraft. Round trip distance from Akyab probably about 650 miles. No bombs were dropped, so I presume none were carried. Take-off 0445, return 0830. I have photographs of 135 Sq. aircraft with paired 150 US gallon wing tanks, and also of aircraft carrying three 108 US gallon tanks, but none from the day in question. Does the absence of bombing necessarily imply that all three pylons were occupied, or would the fuel load preclude a bomb? Or might there be reasons not to carry a bomb? (It had been established the previous day that the area was unexpectedly lightly defended.) Any other practical reasons that would make one arrangement of tanks more likely than another? Thanks in advance for any thoughts you can offer.
  23. I used Tamiya (No:70) kit. Actually it is a D-25 variant. I modified the fuselage to convert it to D-30 which was used in Turkish Air Force service. Decals are from Tigerhead Decals. I build this for the son of a P-47 pilot. The base is not completed yet. All comments are ok. Thanks for looking. Çetin
  24. I bought this kit few years ago, before Eduard made their Limited Edition P-47 set, but i lost my appetite for this big fish . Now i have new airbrush from Gunze so it was a good time to check how it works. I used these additions for P-47: - Eduard resin wheels, - interior PE set, - RB model gun barrels, - Montex masks/decals
