1/48 Academy P 47D Thunderbolt

Gallery Article by David Rapasi on Nov 1 2010

 

This model depicts a new hand polished and waxed P 47D-26 of the 57FG / 66FS in early September of 1944.

This is how the aircraft appeared in one of it's first missions flying from Corsica to Italy while making the movie "Thunderbolt".

This model is finished with a homemade silver lacquer, homemade and kit decals.

I also built this same aircraft using a Tamiya kit and finished it using Rubb N' Buff.
