Trumpeter's 1/32 scale
P-47N Thunderbolt

by Tolga Ulgur

Republic P-47N Thunderbolt


Tamiya's 1/48 scale P-47D Thunderbolt is available online from Squadron.com

 

Description

 

This is my 1/32 Trumpeter P-47N Thunderbolt in the markings of “Chautauqua”  flown by Lt. Victor Schmidt from 463td FS  507th FG (20th AF) Ie Shima, April 1945.

 

 

Trumpeter kit’s overall shape is accurate but has some serious inaccuracie and weaknesses.

 

 

Main problems of the kit are inaccurate cockpit floor, canopy, wheels, wheel wells walls and terrible windscreen.

 

 

The modifications of this project are:

  • Eduard PE cockpit set

  • Eduard PE wheel well set

  • Rutman’s accurate “N”wheels (Thanks to Mr Rick Griewski)

  • Windscreeen and canopy swapped with Hasegawa spare parts.

 

 

Painting done with Alclad metalizers.

 

 

Decals are a mix of Kitsworld and CAM decals sets.
