  1. Hi All, My recently completed model Academy 1:48th scale (kit number 12222) flown by Lt. Col Francis Gabreski of the 61st Fighting Squadron, Boxted, England June 20, 1944. For more about the Francis Gabreski here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gabby_Gabreski It was a love and hate approach with this model. It started very well, but did not end up so well. The Academy kit included decals that needed to be rubbed off from the transfer sheet on to the surface of a model and they didn't transfer very well. Although they have been printed by the Cartograf.
  2. Inspired by my visit at Hendon I decided to built five British Thunderbolts. The two Mk I kits are Academy whereas the Mk IIs are built from an Academy, a Hasegawa and a Hobby Boss Kit. I just took every Thunderbolt that I still had in my stash and made good use of the XRTADECAL Thunderbolt sheet. Some of the drop tanks were sourced from Hasegawa P-38 kits. Each of the planes was brush painted. Thunderbolt Mk I HB492 D 135 Squadron based at Chittagong, India 1944 Thunderbolt Mk I HD648 NA C 146 Squadron based at Kumbhirgram, India 1944 Thunderbolt Mk II HD196 GQ B 134 Sq
  3. Republic P-47D Thunderbolt - WZ-P - No.226551 As flown by Lt.Col. Benjamin Mayo, 84th FS, 78th FG, Duxford Air Base, 1944 Kit: 1/48 Tamiya "Bubbletop" Paints: Citadel, Humbrol and Revell - all applied by brush. Built mostly OOB apart from a few bits of scratch-built plastic and wire in the cockpit and wheel wells. This was built as part of the Republic P-47 Thunderbolt STGB Work In Progress: Here This build represents a number of firsts for me. It's the first non-Spitfire aircraft build since getting back into making kits again a few years back (I'm not counting the Captain Scarlet Angel
  4. Hi All; Here's my recently completed P-47. I was quite happy with how it turned out though I did bugger up a couple of things, and to be honest I lost my nerve in the end on going all out on the weathering. Critiques are always welcome, cheers; Mark.
  5. Hello to everyone! I am trying to collect information about a specific aircraft belonging to the 509th Fighter Squadron, 405th Fighter Group. This P-47 Razorback was specifically the "Jabo" its serial number was 42-25990 and its code G9-U His nose art was a black coyote (? with red boxing gloves. here's the only picture I could find about this aircraft on the internet. This Fighter squadron had some interesting nose arts. A closer look at the nose art: Now here's where the questions Begin: First of all, I have some discrepancies about the actual pil
  6. If you're not fans of the FG- you should be! Here is a neat collection of P-47 and P-51 photos with nose art from the 4th FG website. You can sure see the pride the ground crew had in their charges on their faces in the photos. I hope you enjoy looking at them. Mike http://www.4thfightergroupassociation.org/nose-art-gallery.html
  7. Hi all - here's my latest - The Tamiya 1/72 P-47D bubbletop. Like the razorback version, it's a very nice kit and gave hardly any trouble construction wise. I used a decal set from Lifelike decals to portray this lovely example of the jug - Beside wanting to build another Jug, this was an experiment in using Alclad metal paints - as I have quite a few NMF kits in the stash. This will be the first of many if all goes to plan. I think it came out okay - pretty much the finish I was after but still far from my ideal - I learned alot on this build so I'm hoping the next will be better. I used an e
  8. Another one for the shiny corner: The lovely Revell 1/72 Jug. Finished in Alclad and Mr Hobby as usual with decals from a Skys Models sheet. A quickish build with no issues, maybe 3-4 hours total at a gentle pace. The pilot came from the excellent Revell RAF pilots set. Got a really mean angle on the stand and looky, for all those folks who keep making the same comments about drones, a pilot! And not because of your complaining either, next batch of paid for builds all requested pilots so its market forces Most pleased with how "box art" this looks- each to his own bu
  9. Finally - what feels like forever I have something to post. I seem to have been constantly doing bits and pieces in the background but haven't managed to get anything completed for months. The model I've managed to get finished is Revell's 1/72 P-47 D-30 Thunderbolt. There were 2 options in the box so I opted for P-47 - 28 - RE GC II/5 Lafayette, Armee de L'air, Amberien, France 1944 - I thought it would be good to do something a bit different from the usual American schemes. The model itself was excellent and went together without any hassles - the only real issue be
  10. Hello all; Here's my finished Jug for your perusal. I made about as many mistakes and miscalculations as it's possible to make in painting and marking this one. The full story and many more pictures of the debacle(!) can be found within the build article on my website. It's build as a workhorse of the 365th Fighter Bomber Group and was intended to be weathered as such. Overall I think it turned out ok as a reasonable representation of my subject and my ability. Some of it I'm really happy with and some of it I just decided I would have live with because I couldn't
  11. Hi all, I really shouldn't be adding another model to the production line when there are so many already there, but I can't let a P-47 group build go by without trying to contribute something. However, between the other builds and the unfortunate timing (by far my busiest period at work starts now), I'm not going to stretch myself. So I've opted to buy a simple kit in the form of Academy's P-47D Razorback: I've never built a Razorback before in any scale but I have recently built this kit's sibling via the Special Hobby P-47M boxing and found the build to be pretty
  12. 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
  13. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my 1/72 Tamiya P-47D in markings of 509th Fighter Squadron, 405th Fighter Group, Belgium 1945, flown by Lt. James R. Hopkins. Built from the box with addition of Montex decals (K72008), painted with Tamiya & Gunze acrylics. Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. Thanks for your interest! Best greetings from Vienna, Austria. Roman
  14. Hi all,I started on the 1/48th P-47D Thunderbolt just over a week ago and I've managed to get a fair way with it. There's enough superfluities around for this kit as it has been around for almost twenty years. It's going to be built as 'The Reamer' as flown by Captain Jack H. Reams of the 347th FS, 350th FG.This is what I've managed to get done. Additions so far are the Eduard Super fabric seatbelt and the Quickboost engine. Main paints are painted in Mr Color zinc chromate for the cockpit and yellow chromate for the wheel bays. Once the seams are sorted and the fin is installed it'll be onto
  15. Greetings from Texas, y'all! Just stumbled upon this very neat photo collection that shows the 5th Emergency Rescue Squadron and its P-47's. They flew war-weary, time-expired Jugs that were fitted with dinghy packs and smoke float markers either under the rear fuselage or under one inner wing section. All carried the red-white-blue cowling bands, yellow ID bands on the fin, stabilizers and on the inner wings and wingtips, and many had' WW' painted above the serial on the fin; no two were identical, it seems- some had 4, 6, or 8 guns; some had the standard or asymmetrical paddle-bla
  16. Hello friends, here's another completed models this year. The plane used in the Yugoslav Air Force after World War II, until the beginning of the 60s.
  17. REPUBLIC P-47D THUNDERBOLT Hello! This is my 1/48 Tamiya P-47D Thunderbolt finished in the markings of 1st Lt. Raymond Knight, 346th FS/350th FG,USAAF. This airframe was based in Pisa, Italy in 1945. You can see the WIP posts and more pics of the finished build on my blog: http://thescalemodelhangar.blogspot.co.uk Happy Modelling! Darren.
  18. Just finished this 1/48 P-47D which is an Eduard re-boxing of an Academy kit with resin wheels, resin prop and a resin cockpit. I used Mr Paint paints for most of it, apart from the dark blue of the US insignia which is Mr Color Thunderbirds blue. The USAAF markings and the red/white stripes on the tail I painted, the USAAF markings using Maketar masks. Most of the stencils are from the HGW P-47 wet transfer decal set, and I really liked how well they went on, plus how there is no carrier film for most of the stencils (I used the kit ones in a few places when the HGW ones folded up when wet an
  19. I wasn't sure what I was going to build next after my recently finished Hasegawa A-7D, but seeing a number of planned builds of the Jugs over Germany Eduard set in this GB I thought I'd join in with my Jugs over Italy version. The plastic is by Academy and it comes with a Brassin cockpit and wheels, plus a mask and photoetch. The only addition to the project I made was a set of Master gun barrels for the P-47. The marking options are all really nice, but the one I think I'm going to go for is the one with the red and white striped tail. There is a decal for this on the sheet, but I may w
  20. Hi guys, as you can see in the title I will do the 1/32 Hasegawa P-47D Thunderbolt II. It will be build most out of the box. Pictures of the box content will follow later. cheers,
  21. Ok as host of this GB I guess I had better build something! Well I had it all planned before I went on holidays and I had hoped to buy stuff while I was away but couldn't find what I wanted so just ordered online. My cunning plan fell to pieces once I got home and started looking at the references I had, I wanted to build a Latin American P-47D. The decals I got were for D-30s and higher, where as the model I was building was a D-25. I then though about modifying the model I had to suit (not a really hard mod to do) until I found the perfect decal set! So now I’m building Brazilian P-47D-25
  22. Hi all, These are some pictures of my new OOB (or not so OOB) project: Thanks for coming by :-)
  23. Hello all. This will be my contribution to this group build. Republic P-47D-15-RA Thunderbolt of 58FG, 69FS serial 42-23224 - "A23" in 1944, flown by Lt. Herbert B. Emrich The kit: The subject: I'm planning to do it OOB at this point. Cheers Jimmy
  24. Republic P-47D Thunderbolt Kinetic 1:24 The Republic P-47 Thunderbolt is one of the largest and heaviest fighter aircraft in history to be powered by a single piston engine. It was built from 1941–1945, and was heavily armed with eight .50-caliber machine guns, four per wing. When fully loaded, the P-47 weighed up to eight tons, and in the fighter-bomber ground-attack roles could carry five-inch rockets or a significant bomb load of 2,500 pounds; it could carry more than half the payload of the B-17 bomber on long-range missions (although the B-17 had a far greater range). The P-47 was des
