  1. Having just finished up on the 1/72 XP-72 Super Thunderbolt, I am trying to stay on a roll by starting on a model that I have always wanted, but heretofore could not figure how get. I THINK that I have finally figured out how to do it, because I'm just tired of waiting for all you lazy people out there to do it for me! So, with great hope, and no guarantee, here we go... First up, the famous bird, the very first of the actual P-47 line to be built, the XP-47B. Both the proposed XP-47 and the XP-47A proposals were never built, as they would have been under powered and totally uns
  2. Republic P-43 Lancer (DW48029) 1:48 Dora Wings via Albion Alloys Ltd The P-43 Lancer was a work-in-progress in the mid-30s, and bears more than a passing resemblance to the pinnacle of its design, the P-47 Thunderbolt. Republic’s name was changed from Seversky, and it was their P-35 that was the jumping-off point for a number of designs in the period when it wasn’t yet certain that the US was going to join the war in Europe. The P-43 was one of the more successful designs, but it was an aircraft with some limitations, only performing at its best at higher altitu
  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

  6. Hello everyone... With my RF-4B Phantom shelved due to unforeseen circumstances. I decided to go dig in my stash. I found three Kits that would fall under the rules, though two of them are slated for the Corsair STGB. That left this kit, Monograms classic P-47D Thunderbolt from 1983. I first built this very kit in junior high about the time it came out in this boxing, so ‘83-‘84. I would build three more of these before I was 21. https://www.scalemates.com/kits/monogram-6838-thunderbolt-p-47d--159066 I found this kit by chance last November at the one local swap meet here

  8. P-47D Wheels (648484 for Tamiya) 1:48 Eduard Brassin In 1:48 we have a choice of Thunderbolts from Academy and Tamiya, both of which could do with a set of nice crisp resin wheels, which is exactly what you’ll find in this set. Arriving in the new low-profile flat-packs that Eduard are using for their small resin sets, there are two wheels with highly detailed hubs, two hub caps that have flash between the spokes, and a small white tail wheel with moulded-in strut. There are also flat hubcaps on the accompanying Photo-Etch (PE) fret, and a sheet of pre-cut kabuk
  9. Good morning everyone I’ve recently joined Britmodeller and this is the first of two recently completed 1/72 scale builds - well not really ‘builds’ as they were more ‘restoration’ projects! A friend gave me the (Revell I believe) P-51B Mustang without propeller, canopy and landing gear, and in olive drab camouflage. I used a spare Malcolm hood and a set of Techmod decals to recreate this Mustang III flown by Squadron Leader Eugeniusz Horbaczewski of 315 Squadron, RAF in June 1944. The second aircraft is a restored Republic F-47N (

  11. Another old kit, this time a Hasegawa P47D Thunderbolt. Circa 1972 I think. Part of the stash I bought from the family of an avid modeller who passed away. The stash is in another post. The decals are useless as they are stuck fast to the backing and crumbles when soaked and I tried to tease them apart. So for this one I tried printing my own decal. More of it later on.
  12. Hi! Some of my Thunderbolts on the working table... From top to bottom... Revell P-47D, 509th FS, 405th FG, 9th Air Force. Academy P-47D, 509 FS, 405th FG, 9th Air Force. Revell P-47M, 63rd FS, 56th FG, 8th Air Force. Cheers / André
  13. Hi Guys, just finished this one, it was built for a GB on another forum. It's only the 2nd aircraft I've built, so plenty of mistakes and still a lot to learn.
  14. Hallo again This is my P-47D Thunderbolt. 1/32 Kit is Trumpeter. Stencils are from HGW as wet transfers. Happy modelling

  16. 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 do
  17. I built this kit oob , the kit coming along very nice , minimal fitting. I have the problem when i masking to paint over the decal, when i take the masking tape out it rip the decal i have to masking again and the decal is brittle and very thin, the most time consuming part is the decal. I use Ammo Mig Aluminum color for the whole aircraft and masking panel on the wing and paint with different shade of metal to break the mono-tone of the color. Overall this kit is very nice and easy to build, beware of the thin and brittle decal . Here is the video how i build the model :
  18. Whilst trawling the IWM website for other stuff, I happened upon this 8 minute long colour film of 79 Squadron RAF Thunderbolts in theatre. It also shows some aircraft of 42 Squadron. RAF Thunderbolts Seems to show some retained the original US cockpit harness and raises some interesting colour conundrums, especially around the 4:08 mark. Enjoy, Mark.
  19. 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 gallo

  21. Does anyone out there know which block number the F-47s supplied to Dominica were? I have a Revell -30 in the pile and hope that this would work? Also, is there any producer of FAD decals for the F-51D in 1/72? Thanks in advance. Martin
  22. 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
  23. Kit manufacture: Hasegawa Scale: 1/72 Type: A-10A Thunderbolt II Extras used: Verlinden Productions resin and photoetch update Paints and colours used: Vallejo Model Air Ghost Grey in the cockpit, various Vallajo and Tamiya paints inside, Gunze H57 Aircraft Grey, H301 Grey FS36081, H302 Green FS34092 and H303 Green FS34102 for the camo colours. Aqua Gloss, Tamiya Semi Gloss and Flat Coat were used for the clear coats. Weather was done with thinned down Tamiya Rubber black and Flory Dark Dirt weathering wash. The kit was ok... Raised panel lines are a pain as they
  24. Hello Modellers Finished this recently. Essentially an OOB build with decals by Eaglecals. I'm pretty happy with it, thought its flaws are quite obvious. I have no references which affirm operational use of the centre tank and wing-mounted bomb configuration, so I will plead artistic licence. Comments welcome.
