Hasegawa 1/32 P-47D-30 “Eight Nifties”

Hasegawa 1/32 P-47D-30 (08174) ‘Eight Nifties’ I sometimes wonder whether I should read kit reviews as this kit received the entire spectrum. I guess the moral of the story is that if you like the subject and scale then just go build, which is[...]

1/48 Tamiya P-47D RB 526th FS, 86th FG Corsica 1944

This one will brighten up your day! Many miles of Tamiya masking tape later and I am not rushing to do another 86th FG P-47 anytime soon....... Ultracast seat and wheels. Decals are from relatively new decal producer AMDG decals, and they worked[...]
