Revell / Monogram 1/48 P-47D Thunderbolt, WWII
Today we have Monogram's T-bolt, the old 80's repop that was in the Revell box. This version was issued at around the turn of the century.( Can't believe I wrote that, I remember reading about the turn of the century 1899-1900,yikes). Built with no Am other than the decals which were on Aeromaster set #48-090, this sport one of those unusual paint schemes that was more the RAF, in Ocean Grey, Medium Green over Neutral Grey. With a White forward portion of the engine cowling. Built around 2005, using Aeromaster Warbird Acrylics. After building this version, when some of the Modeling sites were still starting, up there seemed to be a challenge of the authenticity of some of the P-47's that appeared on this sheet. Don't quite remember what was the issue. But irregardless the sheet had some interesting schemes that appealed to me. A nice quick build, even with the raised panel lines, a little work and I have a nice P-47D Razorback. But I do need to get a few more, from Tamiya and Academy. Really surprised that this is the only P-47 I have in the house. Not one is in the stash. Thanks for viewing.
