Republic P-47D-30-RE Thunderbolt (ChemZavod ''Luch'' 1:72) (ex-FROG/NOVO)


Recommended Posts

Greetings, comrades! 
I open this year with the namesake warhorse, which in the final stages, gave me a few surprises in the painting and skinning. But let's not speak of sad things, the tasks have been solved more or less successfully and Thunder has proudly taken its place on the shelf. ) The aircraft (86th FS, 79th FG USAAF, Italy, 1944) (''The Trojan Warhorse'' code X65). I will list some of the manufacturing and refinements: - cockpit and mechanics of the shifting canopy, - visible part of the engine, - exhaust systems, - outboard tank with catches, - bomb pylons, - niches, struts, fore/aft landing gear flaps, - BANO, keel BANO, traffic light and headlight, - RAP, - cowl "collar", - flaps, - antennas, - separated rudders, - stripping and different riveting, - machine guns, - forekill, - tail "cooler"(? ), - hinges and all sorts of hatches. Glazing - Sword, wheels - from Evenger, bombs and bazookas - Revell, decals - Eagle Cal. 
Paint and varnish with brushes: GSI Mr.Color urethane-acrylic, PC88 acrylic, Tamiya lacquers, futura, +plain pencil. 
Enjoy the view!

What an excellent Jug! Again, I note that raised panel lines have a tendency to look good on (under…) a NM finish.

 

Were the flaps and elevators separate in the kit, or did you prform some surgery? Anywas, they elevate the overall impression a lot.

 

Good modelling!

 

Kind regards,

 

Joachim

You've certainly polished that old kit to a high gloss.

 

I particularly appreciate how the prop cuffs and prop blades have different colouration, most modellers miss that.
