Carl Althaus (CaptainA) has sent us a review of a kit that will make the hearts of Thunderbolt fanatics beat faster: Trumpeter's 1/32 scale P-47 D Razorback kit. I can't wait to see the first build pictures of this one!

Nice review Carl.
It certainly looks a beast of a kit, and despite the high(ish) price it should sell well.
Id be very interested to see a comparison build between this and the recent Hasegawa kit.

I hear what you are saying, Nigel. I actually stated that in the review, but it got cut off. I am thinking about doing a side by side build after I finish up a few ongoing builds. The Hasegawa kit is nicely detailed on the outside, while the Trumpeter kit begs to be built with all the panels opened up (and the few that don't open up-removed).These two kits are so different, I don't think there is any way they can be compared.
