P-47N “Chautaugua” Revell 1/48
Here is the second of my Revell P47n Thunderbolts,it was a fun little build though not particularly inspiring ,I improved the kit by adding True details gun barrels and wheels and an aftermarket decal set from Warbirds.Chautaugua was based at Le Shima at the same time as the other T-bolt I posted 2 big and too heavy. For anyone who is familiar with this kit you may remember that the rear wheel and interior of the wheel well and the well cover doors are constructed and added as one piece which I somehow managed to loose in my mancave so I had to scratch build a replacement using a spare Spitfire wheel from the spares box and plastic from a food container !
I made a decision at the start of this year that from now on I am going to buy exclusively Tamiya and new edition Airfix kits to avoid the mountains of poor quality kits that will trip you up at every step,that said this is a reasonably good kit,I’ve built two of them after all ! and is part of my very small stash of kits that I am working through.
Thanks for looking guys
P.S. Hi to Jaime,Simes and Seamus , hope you’re all well.
