Hobbyboss 1/48 P-47D
This kit interested me because of its low price point and generally positive reviews. Yes there are no pylons and a few other accuracy issues but as someone who was just looking to add a P-47 to their collection I wanted to give it a try.
Overall I am very please with the kit. Assembly was easy, fit was good, and the end result looked like a P-47!
I added some aftermarket decals from Aeromaster (these were old and did not perform well) and PE belts in the otherwise very simple cockpit. Painting was done with Vallejo acrylics and weathering with oils and acrylic filters.
