A friend has been at for me ages to build this P-47, so this will be my first choice.
Tamiya 1/48 Bubbletop Kit 61090
Superscale Decals 48-996
Ultracast Seat and Wheels
A few current projects to clear the bench before I am underway, then into it!

Nice one Darren.

Having said that I would wait until I finished a few other projects………..
Painting of cockpit, assembly of wings and other odds and ends well on the way!
Will use Ultracast seat & either Obscureco or UC wheels to replace kit parts. Everything else is in the box.
Thanks for looking

Breaks in between painting Tamiya Beaufighter allowed more work on the P-47.
I have inserted the cockpit module and glued up the fuselage, cowl and engine.
Wings are next in line to be attached after cleaning up the fuselage seams where required.
Thanks for looking!

Never seen that P-47 before – great choice Darren !

Progress on the P47 now ready for some paint. Base coat will be Tamiya AS12 (De-cantered) followed by invasion strips to underside of fuselage. The NMF usually takes a few attempts to get everything right and I am a bit obsessed as well when it comes to my painting…..

Looking very good so far, Darren.

As for NMF’s, my personal favorite(s) are the Model Master line of “Buffable Metalizers” – they’re available in Gunmetal, Titanium, Magnesium, Aluminum Plate and Stainless Steel.

I have finished the base coat on P-47, finally satisfied with the overall finish.
I have done a mottle coat of rubber black as a precursor to OD anti glare panels.
I have also applied some slight colour variation to select panels with Alclad.
Invasion stripes to lower fuselage next on the list to do after the OD is all done.
Canopy also painted, plus wheels and UC doors etc

Been a while since update – I have spent majority of efforts of late keeping modelling room (garage) clean due to strong winds and dust from nearby construction site…..
I have the P-47 ready for decals – a gloss coat has been applied since these pictures were taken. Should start having decals on the next few days as my other project (Tamiya Beaufighter) nears completion.
Thanks for looking!
