Shrimper Spitfire Posted December 5, 2019 Share Posted December 5, 2019 I've been building the Academy Bubbletop P-47 Thunderbolt "Eileen" in 1/72. I quite fancied the checker cowling but the decals wouldn't wrap around properly and also the problem I've found with some other Academy kits is that the decals won't even stick to the surface. I'm thinking of getting some aftermarket decals though they are around the same price as the kit purchased. I was thinking of painting a white band around the cowling though this would be more suitable for the Razerback P-47. Has anyone on here any experience with this kit? and how did you successfully get the b&w checked cowling? Another thing, looking at photos should Eileen have a black rudder? This kit does not show this. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
