Trumpeter P-47D razerback "Checkertail" build

Recommended Posts

Here is my Trumpeter P-47D razerback. I'm doing it as "Big Stud" LTC Robert Lee Baseler Commanding Officer - 325th FG. I had trouble with the old micro scale decals, they were pretty fragile.  They tore in a couple places I'll have to figure out a way to fix them, possibly hand paint them to touch them up. Here are some pics look em over and let me know what you think.

Added the wiring behind the IP with 0.3 & 0.5mm lead wire. Used Eduards photo etch cockpit set and HGW fabric belts. I used Vallejo paints, dull dark green in the cockpit.

Used Vallejo yellow zinc chromate here to bad this all gets closed up so you can't see it.

Painted the cylinders dark steel with silver fin edges, center is P&W grey that I custom mixed based off of photos I have.

I have more pics,but didn't want to clutter up this post. Still have to do the checkertail decals and insignias then a coat of flat clear and hopefully it will be finished. Haven't had a chance to work on it, I've been busy messing around with the B-24J and the Lancaster, but I hope to finish it soon. Some how the pictures got jumbled up, sorry about that.

Thanks CC
