Old Revell P-47

May 22, 2013 · in Aviation · · 6 · 1.7K

Thanks for the welcome, everyone, I sure appreciate it!

Felt kind of funny not having anything to show, so I decided to load these pics of a P-47D that I did a while back. The build took twenty something years, and is chronicled in an article I wrote on LSP after I finished the model. She's built straight OOB except for a set of Rutman wheels. Decals are from an old Superscale sheet.

If anyone is interested, the article is here:

My current project is a Mongram 1/48 A-26C Invader finished in Korean War markings. Just got that one painted and will post some pics after I get a little further along. That one has only taken 11 years to this point...

  1. Saw this behemoth in Seattle a few years back - most don't appreciate the size of the Jug until they stand beside one. Nice job.

      Thanks, Craig! I'm fortunate in that there's a good collection of warbirds in my area, and a P-47 is among them. It's sure a lot bigger than you would think...

  2. you did a fine job on that...those checks can be a bear

      Thanks, Bob! I was worried about those when I started putting them on, but they fit really well and went on without too much of a problem.
