1/32 Trumpeter P-47D-1 “In the Mood”
One more tick to my bucketlist.
This is 1/32 Trumpeter P-47D-1 with the markings of “In the Mood” flown by Captain Gerald W Johnson from 61st Fighter Squadron 56th Fighter Group based in Halesworth England during late 1943.
Cockpit modified by Yahu instrument panel and Eduard seatbelts. Additionnaly Trumpeter’s late style rudder pedals replaced with MDC early ones.
For backdating to D-1, the cowling flaps changed by using plastic card.
I have used Eduard’s Wheel set.
Belly tank is from my Tamiya spare parts.
Paints are Gunze Sangyo and Tamiya acrylics.
Decals are from Zotz Decal set.
PS: I have more P-47 Razorback projects in 1/32. So If you think that the result is good enough to continue with this kit, please let me know.
