Pacific P-47D Thunderbolt

Recommended Posts

Hi all, Calling this one finished, Monograms 1/48 scale P-47D Bubble top
done as a pacific aircraft `Passionate Patsy` flown by Lt Ralph Barns, 310th FS/58th FG
Made a few improvements on the old kit; repositioned gun barrels and replaced with brass tube,
replaced bombs with drop tanks, redid the mount for the centre line tank
drilled out formation lights, landing lights and opened up ejector chutes
and some bits of wire for the ignitionharness and brake pipes
Hope you enjoy
