1/48 Tamiya P-47D RB 526th FS, 86th FG Corsica 1944

This one will brighten up your day! Many miles of Tamiya masking tape later and I am not rushing to do another 86th FG P-47 anytime soon…
Ultracast seat and wheels.
Decals are from relatively new decal producer AMDG decals, and they worked extremely well. Give them a go as their decal sheets feature some unusual subjects.

Happy Modelling!

  1. Absolutely top-notch, sir…love it !

  2. Excellent Jug.

    Question: Are all the graphics decals or a mix of paint and decals? Always looking for new decal sheets 🙂

  3. Hi Matt
    Decals for the codes, insignia & artwork.
    Tail stripes all painted.

  4. Darren – this one is even better than the last ! Absolutely gorgeous, my friend. I can only imagine the fun you had with all that masking !

    This one is a real stunner and an eye-catcher !

  5. I’ve never seen the candy-stripe scheme before – very striking, and you did a bang-up job on it. Very nice!

  6. Wow!
    Great mode mate

  7. Wow, yet another cool looking jug. By the way, why are they called “jugs”?

    • Hi George. My understanding is that when pilots first began to get used to the size of T-Bolts, they started calling then ‘Juggernauts’ (anyone who has stood next to one will understand why). This was cut short to ‘Jug’.

  8. Man, this is nice………
