P-47D "La Fayette" Hobby 2000 1/72


Recommended Posts

Another (3) finished model this year.
Unfortunately, the Revell moldings that the Hobby 2000 packs are already very worn, which is especially visible on the first engine star and the disappearing dividing lines on the engine cover, many scratches (including the glass parts). Model - project, made me creazy:
- painting with my favorit Model Master metallizer, it turned out very bad, the paint behaved completely different than before
- the decals sent to me by Fabien, produced by Carpena, fell apart when applied and the roundels broke while drying on the model,
I managed to save small roundels on wing top and emblems (I had Sioux from 2 elements, but the stork from 4), the codes were printed by my friend on a laser printer, the roundels were donated by another friend - I just had to repaint the blue with a more suitable one.
Underside of the hull, I have reshaped so that it does not look unnatural, which is the hallmark of the Revell's model.
At the end I'm not happy with the result.


New photos with correct description and corrected error on the model that no one mentioned.

Beautiful model, Hadzi.  I presume the blue panels were pre-shading?

 

IMO the worst thing about the Revell kit is the cowl flaps.  It looks like they "could eat corn off the cob through a barb-wire fence," as the saying goes.

Thank you. Your'e right, blue and green panels are pre-shading, but this time it is not good visible on the model.
