1/48 Tamiya P-47D
November 14, 2012 in Aviation
This is my latest completion, and second Tamiya Thunderbolt. I didn’t achieve the transparent look on the grey that I was aiming for, but it will have to do..lol
The only issues I have with the kit are the oversized hub on the Hamilton Standard prop and how the sway braces for the belly tank are engineered, I have a difficult time cleaning up the seams, and then at some point (points) I break them off. Hopefully next time I’ll remember put some sort of guard around them. As for the prop I used a spare from the old Monogram bubbletop Thunderbolt.
The decals are a mix of several different sheet and after I got them on I noticed some registration problems. Oh well, you’ll have that.
