  4. Nice build - great photos

  5. Beautifully built and photographed.

  6. All the extra work on this old warhorse really paid off with a very nice result.

  7. i can add envy to my list of sins

  8. Great work on the old Mono kit - love the variation in the OD, and the overall paint work. Looks great!

  9. Valter, Wonderful work making this old Monogram kit into a very nice model. Looks great !. I also like the display. Well done !

  10. I especially like how you duplicated the over spray on the engine cowling, you can see a lot of that on wartime photos! great work Valter

  11. Beautiful work!

  12. At first glance these pictures you posted look like you have found some original era color photographs of a P-47 ! Very nice indeed... Looks good enough to be the real deal...and it's a Monogram kit to boot. Two thumbs up my friend.

    I just went back and looked again. This time I noticed the .050 caliber MG's lying under the wing. One has the feed tray opened up ! Looks like the armorer is getting ready to swap out some .050's... nice touch.

  13. "Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, A Sixpence in your Shoe"—which names the four good-luck objects this case a Monogram Classic. Shot with some great photography and forced perspective to really pull off that moment or suspension of disbelief. Well done Valter. This is work that one finds in hard copy a book and yet it graces the pages of Imodeler.

    Thank you for sharing. Two thumbs ...3 if I had them.

  14. 🙂 … Greetings … 🙂 :
    A very lovely build and diorama Valter, I am enjoying this project, love P-47's.
    The photography looks great, this is proof that Monogram models can still cause a big appeal.

  15. Good looking Jug Valter, lots of extra work and detail to see. Nicely done and the pics are exceptional as well.
