p47 Thunderbolt seaplane 1/48
« on: August 21, 2020, 04:26:37 PM »
Hello All,

its been a little while since i last posted but life, the virus and work have conspired to put more things in my day than available hours.

i cannot find the original inspiration for this build but it was a cartoon that when i flicked past it looked like a P47 with floats, which i found so funny that i had to make it.

its not quite finished, the wing lights need to be painted and installed but its going on 2 years that i figured its close enough. tried out some new weathering and chipping techniques as well. I think i need to go a little easier and not be so heavy handed.

so without further ado, here tis:





















thanks for watching!

Love this idea! It looks great!

I have a plan to build a P-47 in Pacific colours some day!
