Tamiya 1:48 scale Republic P-47M-1-Re, “Thunderbolt”
March 16, 2013 in Aviation
Another fine model from Tamiya. I won’t go into a whole bit about HOW great this kit is, but suffice to say, it’s awesome.
The upper surfaces of the model are painted in Model Master Enamels, in a very VERY dark blue, which looks almost black. The lower surfaces are NMF, and painted in Alclad II.
Decals are Aeromaster, weathering is by thinned oils and pastel chalk. I added paper belts to the cockpit, but otherwise the kit is built OOB.
Thanks for looking!
