"Father and Son" P-47s

<< < (2/3) > >>

Second Air Force:
I've been very slow with the update on this pair. It seems that I have gotten back into old habits of building and not taking any photos. With that said, here are the two Razorbacks. The small one is the third in my collection of training airplanes from Bruning Army Airfield in my home state of Nebraska. I discovered a photo of Y-92 after a belly landing and knew I needed to build it! The 1/48 kit is finished as a RAF Thunderbolt and I've admired the photo of this airplane for many years. The amazing thing about this one is that I used Monogram decals for the roundels that are at least forty years old. I couldn't believe it when I clearcoated this ancient decal sheet and they actually worked!

Second Air Force:
Here are the finished airplanes, 1/72 scale is a trainer from Bruning, Nebraska and the 1/48 scale is from 135 Squadron at Chittagong in 1944, shortly after it arrived. Decals are all from the spares box with exception of the national insignia on the AAF airplane. These were so nice to build, no drama or fit issues on either one, and I am sure they aren't the last Tamiya Thunderbolts that I will build!

Nice collection and will be for sure pleasure to see em all from you :-ok

Looks superb !
