My British P-47 D Thunderbolt

Recommended Posts

Good evening, I want to introduce you my British Jug 1/48 by Arii.

I built it many years ago but it's still in my hart because it's the first Arii/Otaki I ever built. :D

It's a cross-kit (is it the right word?), the basic kit is Arii but the cockpit, the complete engine, the propeller and the engine cowling are Tamiya from the spare parts box.

Ciao.

P.S. I edited this message. In italian the adjectives don't have the capital letter, we write "british and italian" not "British and Italian". I'm sorry. :oops:

These old Otaki kits still scrub up well and are a great mojo restorer. I did this kit earlier this year but used aftermarket US markings.

Very nice build.

You tend to see British P47s in SEAC colours and this is a bit different.

Always had a fondness for that brand. Easily built with just enough detail for back in the day.

Nice scheme, which you don't see on a P-47 too often...if ever:)
