Nicaragua: Republic P-47D Thunderbolt

Recommended Posts

Hi

For my second entry, I chose the 1:72 Revell P-47D Thunderbolt.

The box shot:

The sprue shot:

The decals I will be using:

I will be adding Eduard Super Fabric seatbelts to this model with the other set going into the P-40B I'm doing. I also purchased the Model Masters barrels as the moulded in the wing kit ones don't look great, whilst I think the MM are great I also think that in 1:72 I could have got away with just using some Albion Alloys tubing cut to length instead......

Opening the sprue bag, it appears that the kit is a bit of a flash monster so there will be a few area's that need a good clean up before assembly starts.

More progress soon.......

Regards

Tim.

Interesting choice of subject Tim. Wasn't aware Nicaragua used P-47s or dressed them in such a variety of roundels.

Great choice of subject Tim.

As you say the Nicaraguan markings have changed a bit over the years, especially with change to and from the Fuerza Aerea Sandinista.

I look forward to seeing your work.

Craig.

Another interesting choice Tim and great that we're getting two styles of roundel on the same aircraft (if I've read that correctly!) :)

They had interesting selection of aircraft during this era Thunderbolts,Mustangs,Lightnings,Havocs,Invaders.

I would have done a P-38L if i had of kept this country for myself.....however real life got in the way and i had to put it back in the pot.

Glad to see Tim picked it up and i look forward to seeing his F-47D
