Razorback – Tamiya 1/72
This is my recent Razorback build. The kit is Tamiya’s excellent P-47D Thunderbolt in 1:72 scale. No problems at all, except my own build errors here and there…
Painting olive drab have been a real challenge for me, simply all of my previous attempts were too dull and lpoked boring. This time I decided to try something different. I found a very interesting technique described on Jon Bius Scale Models, where he built a quarter scale olive drab P-40.
The basic idea is to use yellow to lighten the olive drab, do a patchy base layer with that color on a dark base, do one more layer with yellow on selected panels, and finish the paint job with a heavily diluted olive drab.
The results are good enough for a first try, however there is a lot to learn about this technique.
