P47D-RE25 Brazilian Air Force (Italy 1944) ACADEMY 1/72
March 14, 2014 in Aviation
It’s me again! This time with a P47D painted in Brazilian colours during WWII in Italy 1944.
The Brazilian 1st Squadron was attached to the American 350th Fighter Group and was based in Tarquinia, Italy.
This model was easy to build but I had to do some improvements. The most important was to cut 2mm on the landing gear legs (it is too long and the model looks weird if don’t do so). I also used some photoetched seat belts and I did scratchbuilt the lights under the left hand side wing. Decals came from the excellent FCM Decals range and they reacted very good to MICRO SET/SOL combination. All paint is Tamiya acrylics.
Hope you like it!

PS: The little blot of super glue you see fixing the antenna wire to the ruder has already been replaced. 😀
