1/48 Monogram P-47D (with extras!)

August 11, 2020 · in Aviation · · 13 · 1.5K

Things seem a little slow here at iModeler, so I'm reaching back into the past for an oldie but goodie.

I present to you my 1/48 P-47D, with drop tanks, bombs and prop from the Academy kit. Decals by Superscale #48-624 for the 79th FG.

Stay safe!

  6. You have dressed up this old but venerable kit very nicely. Great choice of markings.

  7. Nice looking P-47. Always thought these kits were one of Monogram's better efforts, and the extras you put on it definitely spruced it up a notch.

  8. Handsome Jug - I hadn't seem those markings before, very unusual - love the tail markings.

  9. Nice Jug, The size of the P-47 makes it a natural for nose art.
