  1. That is one bad-a*s looking P-47 Bolt!!! Really all around great build and top of my list on Thunderbolt models.

  2. Tolga….you’ve got to be one of the best modelers I’ve ever had the pleasure to see.

  3. Another Goldilocks build from the master.

    I wonder why the lower half of the cowling is painted Black? Is that for identification of the squadron or unit. Was it scabbed off of a night fighter or another squadron wreck?

  4. Beautiful work, Tolga. Is that a bronze-green in the cockpit – a little unusual?!

    • Thanks Rob
      I have used Gunze H302 FS34092 which is very close to dark dull green.
      I have used this color for years on my P-47 project
