Academy 1:72 P-47D

Recommended Posts

Originally started back in June for my local IPMS chapter group build, missed the deadline, then languished while I worked on stuff for the nationals. Hasegawa decals, otherwise OOB.

Nice work.

Is it just me or does the engine look tiny?

That's 1/72? WOW!

Cheers, yeah its a nice little kit, a bit idiosyncratic in places, but not bad at all really.

Nice work.

Thanks ;) . It's not that the engine is small, it's that the cowling and prop are enormous by comparison. It looks okay when in place:

I've also drybrushed some aluminium onto the prop to weather it a bit

And finished the decalling (another reason for the stall, the fuselage star and bar decals required surgery to locate properly). Decals are a combination of OOB Academy and surplus Hasegawa for the scheme.

And sorted out some stuff to go underneath
