The P-47 Factory
I have received a few requests for WIP of one of my P-47 builds.
The pics show what I have done in the last 3 days, probably a 1-2 hour stretch of modelling on those days. I have been fiddling with my Airfix P-51D and a few tidy ups on the paint job, so in between that I pulled out a few P-47’s to make a head start on a few future projects. I did have a few cheats, mainly the cockpits for all of the above which were already completed.
When I do cockpits for the P-47’s I will often do multiples as using same paints etc. I mass produce sub assemblies just like the real P-47 was built. I have boxes with seats, wheels, props, engines, bombs, drop tanks etc, already built to help keep me moving. I will start a WIP thread in the appropriate group for those who want to look on while I bang out another P-47. The next P-47 will be the razorback with wings on in markings “The Pied Piper”. Questions welcome!
