Tamiya 1/48 Republic P-47D Thunderbolt, Mexican Airforce
My father did also some Latin American stuff this year, like this T-Bolt.
Tamiya M kit, Aztec decals, Eduard seatbelts, EZ Line for the antenna wire, MRP White Aluminium for the NMF.
All nose trim, wing and fuselage stripes are painted. Although Aztec provides decals for all the outlines, my dad decided to paint them too.
The model shows an aircraft of the 201st Fighter Squadron of the Mexican Airforce shortly after WW2. The unit was established during the war and fought alongside the USAAF in the Pacific.
The 201st is still an active duty unit, using Pilatus PC-7.
