1/48 Tamiya P-47 M

January 10, 2023 · in Aviation · · 14 · 0.8K

This kit sat in the storage closet for 15+ years I'm glad I finally got to it as it is a fabulous kit. The only aftermarket items used were Master gun blast tubes, Kits of the World 3D seatbelts and Superscale Decals. Polyscale and Vallejo paints used for upper colors and Vallejo Metal Colors for undersides. Model depicts the flown by Maj. Michael Jackson of the 62nd FS/56th FG.
