P-47D Razorback build

Since I had a false start on this build I decided I'd start a whole new thread. I still plan to do Pengie II so let the work begin! :)

Comparing the Hasegawa fuselage to the Trumpeter I find two "issues". The tail on the Trumpeter kit is taller than the Hasegawa. Also, the fuselage is deeper. My guess would be the Trumpeter is a bit off.

Having built the Trumpeter Jug my main piece of advice would be to join the spine inserts to the fuselage halves and then join them, rather than as the instructions show. Gets you a far neater finish.

Looking forward to seeing what you do with this.

Can this be built without all the goofy turbocharger ducting in place?   

Either way, I'm looking forward to seeing this develop

That is my intention Ernie. A waste of plastic. :)

Nothing like following a Jug build. As always, will be following every step of the way. Thanks for posting the comparison photos, food for thought as always on how manufactures determine the shape, size and details.

Keep 'em comin

Surely they must source original or copies the subject in question? Ok injection moulding and cost can negate certain details but verbal shape and mass of fuselage and wings can’t be difficult, IMHO.........

As soon as I get well along or completed Hasegawa or Tamiya will announce a razorback. LOL :)

Just about done with the cockpit. I'll wait a bit before adding the gunsight glass.
