Thunderbolt was created by IAN
Kit - Tamiya
Paint - Alclad & AK Xtreme metal lacquers, Tamiya acrylics.
Decals - Aeromaster 48-569
Extras - Eduard placard set, Ultracast resin wheels


Republic P-47D-27 Thunderbolt
Assigned to Major Clay Tice
507th FS, 404th FG
Autumn 1944























Not too much to say in all honesty; Tamiya's still superb 2003 kit is a dream to build and really does define the 'shake & bake' kit in my opinion - this is the fourth one I've built and the first 'bubbletop'. The AK Xtreme Metal lacquers continue to astonish at just how 'user friendly' they are... just need some more tones as my choice is a wee bit more limited than I'd like, hence I used a couple of Alclads in this build.

As ever please feel free to comment, hurl abuse or ask a question. Next two projects are already on the bench and both come from boxes marked 'Airfix'.

Best from the 'Naki


Ian.
