Hasegawa's 1/32 scale
by Osvaldo Viggiani
Republic P-47D Thunderbolt
Hasegawa's 1/32 scale P-47D Thunderbolt is available online from Squadron
Here are some photos of my 1/32 scale Hasegawa P-47D Thunderbolt.
I based my model on the Victory film "They Fight for the Sky", in which this machine appears. I spent a lot of time looking at the images and decided to paint the model this way.
The model is straight from the box except for minor details such the spark plugs wires, landing gear brakes lines, dorsal antena isolator, and Eduard pre painted photoetched interior.
I have laminated the entire undersurface of the model with kitchen aluminum foil. Uppersurfaces were painted with Testor's Model Masters RAF dark green and medium sea grey enamels
I also replaced the serial number on the rudder for one made on my ALPS printer in white color
