This is the 1:48 Academy P-47D,
The rivets were applied with a home made pounce wheel fabricated from a watch cog, some brass rod and a sewing pin.
SnJ was used for the natural metal finish along with Aeromaster enamels and Tamiya acrylics. Weathering was accomplished with pastels and a wash of Liquitex acrylics.
The decals were from Aeromaster.
