Hasegawa's P47D Bubble Top was used for Frank Perego's mount "Slick Chick".  Overall a sound kit and fun build with only issue being having to lower the engine mount by about 1mm.  See my WIP log.

 

BUILD DETAILS

  • Alclad II - various shades
  • Gunze and Valliajo used throughout
  • Flory's Wash
  • Thinned brown & black wash followed by Alclad II Semi Matte overall
  • MiG pigments for dirt, exhaust, powder burns on blast tubes and ordnance weathering
  • Added various wires & plumbing in R2800, cockpit, wheel wells, landing gear and bombs
  • Aftermarket items Eduard bomb fins/belts, Hasegawa brass blast tubes, Barracuda wheels
  • Scratch built the M10 bazookas, K14 glass, oxygen hose, fuel lines on drop tank and static wire

With flaws too numerous to mention this build yielded some great lessons as my skill-sets continue to evolve.  Thank you all for your encouragement and support during this build.  June will be dedicated to rebuilding my bench and setting up new photo table.
