Tamiya 1/48th P-47N "Some Punkins" 73rd FS, 318th FG


Recommended Posts

Got this finished last month. I used the Vector wheel bays, P-47 upgrade set and M/N prop. Wheels are Ultracast ones and the 75 gallon drop tank is from Edaurd's Brassin range. K-14 gunsight from Aires. Painted with Alclad II for the NMF and Humbrol enamels for the rest. Decals are from Zotz, with the Insignias and stencils from the kit  and a few Eduard stencils. I changed the seat near the end of the build to an Ultracast square type as I had incorrectly used the earlier type from the kit. (Click on the photos for a larger image).

Yours has to be one of the finest builds I've seen here. The metal finish is superb, the details are outstanding, paint work and decals are awesome. You have a show piece there, my friend.

Wow! A fantastic finish, awesome conversion and kudos on the interior details.

I don't normally look at prop powered warbirds but I am glad I took a look at this! Hats off to you Sir!
