The tail is a KI-43 from the Nichimo kit the damage is done with odd's and ends from  old photoetch frets and aluminum foil of course the bullet holes are done by grinding
the fuselage super thin and using a knife to make the holes.  The psp is Verlinden.  

The palm leaves are paper and photo etch, the ivy is a lichen that grows local it was dried then dyed and clearcoated. The P-47D's finish is bare metal foil.
