Gabreski’s Thunderbolt. HobbyBoss 1/48
September 17, 2014 in Aviation
This is the Hobbyboss’s P47D in the Easy Assembly range. I was so curious to see what it could be done with 30 pieces of plastic. Finally, it look fine (to my humble opinion) and allow to spent more time with painting, chipping (surely what I love in modeling 😉 ). Perfect for a beginner….
Decals are quite poor in quality and as you will see I had setbacks with swatiskas.
To my mind, this Gabreski’s Thunderbolt pattern is one of the most becoming for the Thunderbolt (And probably too because I have some difficulties with Natural Metal Finish lol). That being said, the CBI chosen by Gregor for his model is fine too. Perharps for the next one 😉
As usual, criticisms are welcome…
Have a nice day
