P-47D ThunderboltMatchbox, 1/72

October 17, 2018 · in Aviation · · 4 Comments

Rebuild from an old-beaten up kit from the 80's. "Unpainted" it with some brake fluid, and painted it again, just to test some techniques.
The last varnish coat produced a 'whitish' look :-/
[UPDATE] Later on, the antena cable was replaced and the streched sprue gave place to a 0.02 cable. Much beter 🙂 (will take photos some time)
