Republic P-47D Thunderbolt – Monogram 1/48

I've finally completed this kit after a long period of in-process limbo. But first I must briefly explain how this kit came to be on my work bench in the first place. It all started when I purchased a second-hand Hasegawa P-47D, mainly due to [...]

Hasegawa 1/72 P-47D Engine run up

I enjoy photographing my models just as much as I like building them. Here's an example. I shot this scene with a Nikon Coolpix 950 ($18 on eBay). This camera has excellent depth of field. Tarmac is sand paper, crew chief is from the 1958 Mo[...]

Here is my last built. The Academy kit was a surprise for me. Very nice and easy kit. I used LM decals. As usual every comment is welcome! Link with the details for Philip Savides:

Former Brazilian Jug

Before Spitfirepalooza, there was “I Like Jugs.” My 1/72 Spitfire collection is a bit larger than my P-47 one but, my 1/48 P-47 collection wins (for now, those Eduard overtrees I just bought will turn the tide when done). This is Hasegawa kit. I[...]

Tamiya 1/48 P-47D

Here's my Tamiya P-47D. Vallejo Metal Color (Aluminum) was used. After the decals were added, I sealed everything with a semi-gloss coat. Graphite pencil was used in the panel lines, then scrubbed with a stiff brush in order to work in some t[...]

Republic P-47D Thunderbolt “Okie”

Well, yesterday was a busy day at the Cameron airport. I finally had an opportunity to spend a couple hours out there and photographed three more planes. These were the very first digital pics ever of this one, a Republic P-47D Razorback, a 1[...]
