    Username: Totalize
    First name: David
    Category: Intermediate
    Scale: 1/48
    Manufacturer: Hasegawa
    Model Type: P-47D-25
    Aftermarket Add-ons: Some quickboost and eduard resin, associated decals.


    Here she is, Coffey's Pot. Weathered up to look like she's been flying ground attack missions to and from France for over month since D-Day.

    I had my challenges with different mediums used on this build and at one point wasn't happy with the starboard side of the aircraft in which I stripped off the gloss coat and re-did the weathering. Also, the Super Scale National Insignia on the port wing kept tearing off during the weathering process. That's the third one you see there. They are very thin.

    Hope you all like it.

    Will post more pics when I get the time.

    Shots of the finished build.

    Agree fully. A real beauty.

    Any objections from the judges or GB entrants if we allow this one in? I vote yes.
