Nice a Wolf Pack Thunderbolt, with full invasion stripes and bombs ?  - they were close support to the ground troops in the days after the invasion

I built this as part of the p47 gb last year, I don't think you'll find a photo of the lady with bombs patrice, she was a bomber escort, and fighter primarily, I hope I'm wrong, I'd love to see the silver lady built again. 

Still there are plenty of pictures of it in stripes, but it changed to a malcolm hood canopy in the October 44 I believe

Some info

Also helpful for how to do the stripes.

Hope this is helpful.

No problem patrice, all the best, it was actually August, the silver lady was fitted with the malcolm hood, that's when she had half fuselage dday stripes, you'll need full stripes with the standard canopy , although I did think about trying to use a  malcolm hood from a p51 B kit, it was the with the malcolm hood version witold lanowski achieved most of his kills apparently it was a well shared aircraft with many aces flying in her, and scoring some of they're kills, I look forward to it, 

@modelling minion, hi Craig I do remember that the silver lady had non standard wing stripes, being more out board than other striped p47s, your link reminded me

Here's another link, you may find usefull

Wow how good does that look!! I’ve built this one and like everyone else, it slides together 

Wish I’d known about that IP set.

Yahu IPs are really nice, these days, I'd look out for them on any aircraft build.

I recently used my first yahu ip panel on a fly 32nd hurricane, the detail on it was awsome, so fine, 

So far so good patrice 👍

Very nice work Patrice, the cockpit looks great.

Looks like the kit is going together very well and very quickly too.

Good afternoon

Thank you all for your comments ..

modelling minion the Tamiya Thunderbolt is really a pleasure to build ..

I could have built another one for this Gb but I plan to build a Mosquito and maybe a Tempest if I have enough time ..
