  1. Jeeze, Louise - you do like your Jugs, Darren. This is probably my favourite you've done so far, unusual colouring and lovely shading. And I can see why you were attracted by the decals. One thing, can you tell me how you get those canopies so clear?

  2. Beautiful jug! you can't have too many.

  3. Nice. I have become a fan of P-47's recently and this one is a beauty.

  4. "..Exquisite.." was the adjective that first popped into my head when I saw this. 🙂

  5. This is another fantastic T-bolt Darren... You have a real talent for these birds !

  6. Just marvelous!

  7. Darren, Very nice, as usual ! You can't have too many P-47s especially when they look nice like this. !

  8. Wow Darren, another nice P-47 Bolt. You are the "King" of the P-47 model makers. Really nice. Would love to see a picture of all your "Jugs" lined up on a flight line. Very impressive.

  9. Outstanding Thunderbolt, Darren ! I really like the overall scheme. It's a bit different than many - those yellow stripes set it off well.

    Thanks for sharing !

  10. Excellent build. I sense a Jug addiction...probably like my F-4 habit - my wife just doesn't understand why I need "just one more" when my stash is full of them!

  11. Yes, definitely another excellent addition to the collection.
