P-47D "Janny M" 351st FS, 353rd FG


Recommended Posts

I started this back in June and finally finished her up this morning. A colorful one she is! I took a bit of liberty with the paper drop tank in YZC. This is the Tamiya 1/48 kit.

Love it Jim! It's especially colorful due to the cowl. Did you paint it or use decals?

Thanks Gil. The cowling is a yellow base coat with the black checkers in decal and black technical marker.

The color scheme makes me think that the 353rd FG inherited hand-me-down Thunderbolts from the 56th FG!

I can see where that would seem possible. The "fly in the ointment" for me is that this appears to be a standard RAF pattern. The 56th did what they wanted pattern and color wise as far as I know.
