Trumpeter 1/32 P-47D Razorback
By John Kim
This is my recently completed build of the 1/32 scale Trumpeter P-47D Razorback kit depicted as Lt. Frank Oiler's mount christened "Eileen" of the 78th Fighter Group of the 84th Fighter Squadron based at Duxford, England in 1944.
The list of aftermarket items is relatively short:
- Barracuda Studios P-47C/D Diamond Tread Main Wheels in resin
- BarracudaCals P-47 Thunderbolts Part 1 Decals for the Eileen artwork and maintenance stencils (Special Thanks to John Stambaugh!)
- Montex P-47D Razorback (Trumpeter) Super Mask set for the engine cowling checkers
- Yahu P-47 Early Instrument Panel
The majority of the major markings were painted using custom cut masks.
