  1. So having found my chosen victim for this GB, what a pleasant surprise to find that rather than building a NMF version I could build a French version. And as I've recently had the pleasant of meeting up with @jean down in London the timing is perfect Here's what it should look like, I'm already nervous of those blooming stripes but "c'est la vie" Cheers Pat

  5. Howdy folks, I am on a 1/72 P-47 trip and was wondering how do the Academy and Revell Bubbletops compare, IIRC the belly TC scoop was a bit narrow in one of the twos, I am away from home and have no other access to documentation. Other than Tamiya's Razorback, is Academy better than Hasegawa and is the quick build Hobby Boss acceptable? Love the Bonnie that was flying at Oshkosh and would like to do a heritage pairing for Passionate Patsy after seeing the 310th FS F-16 retro paint job.

  7. Hello guys, Here are the photos of my latest completed model, Tamiya's 1:48 P-47D Razorback. The model was painted as "Little Chief," flown by Frank Klibbe.
  8. Hello everyone, I'm happy to show you my first ever P-47, the Tamiya Razorback in 1:48. I'll be making a start on it today. Scheme chosen will be "Little Chief," just because it has the bomber escort option with the three underside fuel tanks. It's also the more colourful option than "Spirit of Atlantic City."
  9. Just when you thought it was safe to get back into the water, there he goes again...! Hi folks, getting ready to start the latest chop shop conversion for my collection, the one-of-a-kind XP-47F, which is historical on two accounts. First, Republic Aviation's first use of the Langley Field Wind Tunnel's data on laminar air flow wings, probably (at least in popular thought) derived from the Curtiss XP-46, also possibly used later on the NA-73 Mustang series (P-51's, Mustang I's, etc.). Although, it is also said that North American also had extensive prior testing at their disposal -- who knows? Anyway, the second reason the aircraft is historical, is because when they added the laminar flow, more "straight wing" wing to the aircraft, it changed the CG, so that (8 or 10 inched were added to the front cowl area, a mod which stuck on the later C and D model, etc. Below is all the information that I have been able to come up with, so far: Along with some drawing, which I have cropped for my own needs: The original drawing can be had in a discussion thread over on the WWII Aircraft Forum HERE Although, I found mine elsewhere. On the WWII forum, there is also a second set of drawings, and a conversation about which is correct. I have made my choice, as you will see in this build thread, as I'm not getting any younger, and as they say, I may be running out of "daylight" some day. Hopefully, not too soon, as I have a pretty larger "bucket list"! For this build, I will use my usual, more inexpensive than other kits, Academy P-47D Razorback, and the old generic aftermarket resin cockpit set: Also, if anyone has any more data or photos, please feel free to jump right in. Also, a reminder to those old, seasoned scratch-builder and conversion maestro's, this build will be detailed in the needed areas, and may be old-school and archaic to some. Primarily I do this to show younger or less-experienced modelers how I happened to do it, in hopes that more will jump in and perhaps contribute new ideas about easier ways or alternative modern materials to get the job done a bit easier. I shall commence anon, stay tuned. Ed
  10. Hi all! This is my first WWII build. OOB Tamiya, lovely kit. Aftermarket decals SuperScale Decal No. 72-811. Tamiya acrylic base coats with Tamiya enamel pin wash and some weathering with Abteilung 502 and Mig Oil Brushers. A very loud shout-out to Seamus whose P-47 inspired and served as the model for this build. Thanks for looking!
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. 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!
  14. 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 🙂
  15. Hello Friends! Thunderbolt P-47D-28-RA I decided to do some improvements to the kit Worked with the engine and undercarriage bays Machine guns made from injection needles I selected the serial number according to the reference literature Enjoy watching! I wanted it as best, it turned out as always...

  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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.
  21. 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.

  23. 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
  24. 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
