Hasegawas ’98 1/48 Razorback, Little Chief.

Another fall together kit (yes!) On this Jug i got to mostly concentrate on painting, not filling and aligning and sanding and..etc. It's the first time i have really attempted to get tonal variety by adjusting the amount of different colours (w[...]

Gabreski’s P-47 – another take

Following the iModeler Rule- don't post your take on the same model on top of someone else's on the same page - I waited over the weekend from my planned Friday post, so as not to detract from Scott Nelson's very nice take (now two pages away) t[...]

I Like Jugs, Pt. 5

Here’s my interpretation of Gabby Gabreski’s P-47D. This is the Tamiya kit, one of the best engineered kits I’ve ever had the pleasure to make. Honestly, I don’t know why I don’t have a half dozen more in my collection. Oh, wait! Maybe it’s the[...]

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[...]

Academy 1/48 P-47N Thunderbolt

This was a fun build! I've never had much luck with Academy's decals, so when I found the cool Hawaii ANG sheet, I was set. Although maybe basic by some standards, I think the cockpit builds up nicely after a wash and drybrushing. Same with t[...]

1/48 Thunderbolt Mk. II

This is the old Monogram kit. Originally released in 1967, I built this one from a 1993 reissue. I robbed the big Lockheed wing tanks from a Tamiya kit, and relocated one bomb to the centerline station. The big fuel tanks are a common sight o[...]
