1/48 Tamiya Thunderbolt "Pengie II" 56th FG

August 14, 2017 · in Aviation · · 18 · 2.3K

Hi Everyone

Long time since I posted anything here. This one completed earlier this year and recently had some photos taken.
Decals are from the excellent AJ Press Book "56th FG Part 1"
Ultracast Seat and Wheels
Paints are Mr Hobby and Acrylics.

Future builds include more 56th FG aircraft - though deciding which one is difficult as too many to choose from!

Happy Modelling!

  9. Very nicely done Darren. My compliments to you.

  10. You had me at 'Thunderbolt' and then a Razorback as well. Great looking model.

  11. Very nice. Mike Gladych was one of the real "characters" of the group.

  12. I agree with everyone who commented above. Your T-bolt is a wonderful work of art. Two thumbs up Sir ! I really like it.

    Nice finish on that Thunderbolt.

  14. I admire your collection of P-47s. They ARE brutes .. but GREAT brutes and you've done this one as well as many others excellently!

    I love the finish!

  15. congrats on an awesome build! Makes me want to dig out my Tamiya P-47's and start clipping parts of trees- but I need to clear out the partial builds first!

  16. Another fine T-bolt, nice job.
