Eduard 1/32 P-47D "Dottie Mae"
By Emil Welker
I just finished Eduard`s P-47D, and had great fun building it. It is the reboxing of Hasegawa`s P-47D with some photo etched parts, beautiful resin wheels and decent decals. The construction was pretty straight forward, the fit is really good on this one. The photo etch does improve the kit quite a bit, especially around the flaps and in the cockpit. I just added the Master Models Barrels, but I think Eduard could have added them when charging so much for a kit. This was my first experience with a natural metal finish and boy, it really shows every little surface flaw. I used AK Interactive`s Xtreme Metal Range for the NMF and Tamiya colours for the anti glare panel etc. The decals are on the thicker side but with some work, they came out beautifully. For the weathering I used oils and Mig`s enamel products.
