Afternoon folks - today I'm starting work on the Tamiya P-47D Thunderbolt in 1/72 - this has been on my wishlist for quite some time so looking forward to getting stuck in. I'm just about finished the Tamiya FW190 D9 which was a simple kit (one sprue) so was quite surprised when I saw this: Heaps more plastic - the parts look really good - seems more like an eduard kit with the level of detail and way more advanced compared to the FW190 - pleasantly surprised. I love the riveting - and it means I don't have to get out my riveting tools - again I wasn't expecting this as the FW barely has panel lines. This kit is on a different level. Very clean clear details. I should note that this is only my second tamiya kit. Some really nice cockpit details - I predict some fun times with a fine detail brush. I've got some aftermarket too - just a replacement instrument panel, some eduard seatbelts and canopy mask. I also got some turned brass gun barrels but from what I can make out, they're for a different kit - the gun barrels in the kit look really good also but we'll cross that bridge when we get to it. I'll be starting work on the cockpit very soon - thanks for checking in.
So hello all, This is my second GB and my hasn't it come around quick. This kit may kick of what can only be described as a radial period for me, after this I have the corsair GB and I have a hellcat in the wings! I have for this GB the hasegawa P-47 D in 1/72 I had always planned on doing this in SEAC scheme however I have some trouble with this, I have been looking for a set of transfers and ound these It's for FL-D which IS SEAC but I don't have a colour scheme for it closest I can find is FL-O.......Hmmmm Any pointers? However I an tempted to do my first American aircraft as the options that come with the kit look pretty good! Hmmmm still not sure on which to pick! Any thoughts from anyone? Rob
