1/32 Trumpeter P-47N Thunderbolt “Chautauqua”
This is my 1/32 Trumpeter P-47N Thunderbolt with the markings of “Chautauqua”
flown by Lt. Victor Schmidt from 463td FS 507th FG (20th AF) Ie Shima, April 1945.
Trumpeter kit has an accurate overall shape but some serious inaccurate and weak areas are existing.
Main problems of the kit are inaccurate cockpit floor, canopy, wheels and terrible windscreen.
The modifications of this project are:
– Eduard cockpit set
– Eduard wheel well set
– Rutman’s accurate “N”wheels (Thanks to Mr Rick Griewski)
– Windscreeen and canopy swapped with Hasegawa spare parts.
Painting done with Alclad metalizers.
Decals are a mix of Kits world and Cam decals sets.
