    Good one Bruce, that Tamiya P-47 is a damn fine kit - should look great.

    Cheers

    Bruce as a suggestion the looks of the crate might be more effective if you use the old olive drab paint job instead of aluminum. go check the little freinds web-site out and punch in 78th fighter group. go to gallery and you are set to go for many different Jug camo-markings for the 78th fg.

    Looking forward to this. I have the same kit but for the N version in my stash and it's tempting me to get into it.

    Good selection Bruce, and a quick build, by my standards anyway.

    cheers guys,I checked out the little friends website erich and there are plenty of good photos but i'm going to stay away from the olive drab/neutral gray paint scheme this time that would be three in a row for me and i need to have a change.But i have a razorback p-47 that i might do in either the 78th scheme or the checker tails but i have to get the decals.p.s i also have another p-47 bubble top but i want to do this in the RAF cammo in the P.T.O cheers.
