Gallery Article by El Rey on June 30 2020



Greetings modeler community. This is my first model, in this awful year. Now I built, a P-47 flown by the famous Tuskegee's squadron. Is my first time, making a Tamiya model. Item 61086, the kit is not perfect, but has very well quality. About its building, the kit was made out of box. Has a few fails and lack some minor details. Just I used one after product. Eduard FE226 photo etched.  All lights and pitot tube, are made on scratch. I got better the wheels. The normal colors, were painted, using: Tamiya, Gunze(gloss), and Model Master(flat) colors. The aluminium color, is like always. The Super Metallic Color(Chrome Silver) of Mr. Color. This product has given, a great results. I love it.
