For your evaluation guys....
Rebuild from an old-beaten up Matchbox kit from the 80's. "Unpainted" it with some brake fluid, and painted it again, just to test some techniques.
The last varnish coat produced a 'whitish' look :-/
[UPDATE] Later on, the antena cable was repl[...]
Well, the pics were taken quite a few years ago, and depict some of the then still survivors from my aircraft building "golden age", many, many moons ago (between 35 to 40 years ago!) .
All these, and at least as many as these (mainly aircr[...]
My just completed Airfix 1/72 P-47D. I spruced it up with a prop, bombs and shackles, drop tank, possibly the engine (I forget), bazookas and decals from Tamiya kits. True Details wheels and cockpit, as well as scratch built wheel wells.

flown by Lt. Victor Schmidt from 463td FS 507th FG (20th AF) Ie Shima, April 1945.
Trumpeter kit has an accurate overall shape but some serious inaccurate and weak a[...]
Tamiya Kit with scratch-built lead foil seat belts. Mixed the blue/black color IAW Tamiya's instructions. Must be careful and use the right magnetos, not the ones called out for in the instructions. Aeromaster decals were used. Finished in T[...]

I have received a few requests for WIP of one of my P-47 builds.
The pics show what I have done in the last 3 days, probably a 1-2 hour stretch of modelling on those days. I have been fiddling with my Airfix P-51D and a few tidy ups on the pain[...]
One of my personal favourites, and a splash of colour for good measure!
Added the Ultracast seat and wheels, decals from the excellent Thundercals range by Norris Graser.
My next razorback is actually a sister P-47, being "The Pied Piper" from S[...]
Tamiya kit with the usual ultracast seat and wheels.
Decals are from Berna Decals and roundels from the spares box.
Something different and eye catching compared to the usual P-47 fare.....
