Tamiya 1:48 Jug – “Little Chief”
This is the second model I've built since restarting my hobby after a nearly 40 year recess. The subject of this attempt was the excellent Tamiya 1:48 Razorback P-47 Thunderbolt. I really wanted to build the "Spirit of Atlantic City" version, but that ship didn't have the underwing stores of "Little Chief." So I loaded her up with rocket tubes, 500 lb bombs, and the funny looking "pancake" drop tank ready for action. The model is hand painted using Ammo acrylics and no weathering, which I plan to do later.
I've added a few new pictures to show-off the underwing stores that are difficult to see in the original pictures.
