Since lately I've been building some kits that I've had on the shelf either partly completed or not I decided to resume work on this P-47N kit. I had it very far along when I put it aside something like 10 years or so ago so now I have a head start on finishing it. Should be a very attractive a/c when done.

Another awesome save and looking mighty good. NMF looks is spot on the money. 

The Jug is one of my all-time favorites, even ahead of the Mustang and Spitfire and Hellcat. Republic was a Long Island Company located in Farmingdale and just a few stops east from Grumman's on the LIRR as the crow flies :rolleyes:. When I was growing up, my bedroom window faced east and I could see every once in a while, a F-105 Thud in the pattern at Framindale.

I've seen many P-47's over the years and the sound of the big P&W R2800 is music to my years. If any aircraft has the tough, New York attitude, it was the Jug. 

Will be following al the way. :construction:
