  1. Darren, yet another immaculate build, and great paint job. How long does it take you to knock one of these out? You must be able to build the tamiya kit without even looking at the instructions by now :)! Inspiring work - Makes me wanna build a P-47.

    • maybe even blindfolded!

    • Hi Gregor

      I would take 1-2 months for each aircraft depending on how much time I have available.
      I often have a few on the production line at any one time.
      I also batch cockpits, engines and other sub assemblies to speed the process.
      I always have a set of instructions close by...

  2. Agree that your P-47 series is inspiring. I admire these modelers who pick on one subject and then explore it in-depth through an entire series of builds. It takes a lot of dedication, but the results are often very inspirational - like in this case!

  3. Really enjoy your tight, clean builds. Crisp and perfect representations. Great work.

  4. Another very nice P-47.

  5. i just started an n model, and let me say your work is very inspirational!
    thinkin about maybe doin a "what if" naval version.
    great work,, on all the 47s...

  6. Beautiful model! Very well done indeed Darren!
