Tamiya 1/48 P-47M
This is my first finished project this year, the very well known and praised Tamiya P-47 1/48 kit. Nothing to add, really, a superb kit. Only some small stencils did not behave well and...disintegrated. C'est la vie!
Since these especific birds didn't operate for too long, war ending in Europe was months away, I kept the weathering at a minimum, just some dirt from the airfields, but not too many scratches and chipping...
Canopy masks from Eduard, guns from Model Masters and seat belts from scratch.
Hope you enjoy!
