Brilliant work, Jean Luc! From the ropes on the chocks to the chips on the cowl well done.

I agree very well done. its a great job and the vehicles just add a great touch and the turning prop is icing.

Very Nice Jean-Luc!!!

Ich finde zwar, das einem die P-47 Manie hier ziemlich auf den Geist gehen kann, aber wenn sowas dabei heraus komm, ist es o.k.

TMMI hmm ... damit hast du ja wieder für eine Weile deinen Tamiya Bausatz Bedarf gedeckt

alles Gute

Absolutely stunning Jean Luc. Especially the spinning prop. It really brings the whole scene to life..

Steffen, es handelt sich um Tamiya "France" nicht "International". Aber ansonsten hast du wohl recht.

Jean-Luc,
I was looking at the pic's in this feature last night and my wife was looking over my shoulder at them. She said " Wow, I didn't realize they had color film way back then". She thought she was looking at photos of real WWII Thunderbolts.

Quite a complement considering every time I show her one of my finished models she says "Keep trying honey, their starting to look better".
Great dio, and beautiful P-47!
