Tamiya P-47D Thunderbolt, 1/48
This model from Tamiya is great. Has a lot of parts and decals to build two versions. I bought an Eduard PE to give more detail to the cockpit, landing gear, fuel tank and motor. The paint took me some time. I had to put a black primer and then cover it with aluminum. Later masked some parts and cover them with a little darker aluminum. The invasion black and white stripes where painted too. Then was the time for the decals who took me a little time. The REAL challenge was the nose square decal, but at the end everything finish ok.
I added an electric engine to make the propeller spin and make it look more real. Check how it looks:
Hope you like it.
