Kyle sent me an update on my RAF P-47 build, and this is what he said, “Well guess what, we're back in business! Decals are on and gear doors are in too. I'm going to help my friend on his 1/5 p47 but if I'm lucky I can get the flat clear on tonight.”

 

Here are some photos:

Kyle sent me an update on my RAF P-47 build, and this is what he said, “This time I decanted model master dull cote, I'm very happy how it sprayed and laid out. It's by far the flattest clear I've used. I still have minor things to wrap up such as painting inside the cowling and painting the prop but were closer than ever.”

Kyle sent me an update on my RAF P-47 build, and this is what he said, I installed the guns and pitot tube and painted them silver. I installed the centerline tank braces on the bottom of the fuse. The inside of the cowling was painted grey as well.

Kyle sent me an update on my RAF P-47 build, and this is what he said, “I painted the rocket tubes and bombs for the P-47. The bombs are now masked off and will have the yellow stripe sprayed along with the prop tips.”

It's amazing how long the fiddly bits can take to get done, and you're not done til they are too. Still, his attention to detail is going to add to an already nice looking T-Bolt!

Kyle sent me an update on my RAF P-47 build, and this is what he said, “I finally painted the yellow tips and bombs stripes for the P-47. I'm going to shoot the prop today with flat clear, then I'll be able to mask for spraying the hub silver. A few more steps and the two 1/72 planes will be complete. Then we can talk about display options. I got the ordnance on and started to mask the prop for the hub.”

Kyle sent me an update last night on my RAF P-47 build, and this is what he said, “Here is the prop and the drop tank. I used testers metallizer aluminum. It's an interesting paint and has a rather realistic metal finish. I'm waiting for an opportunity to do a NMF plane.

I'll get these on tonight and maybe do the wingtip lenses. Realistically I'll try to be wrapped up with the planes within the week, then it'll be full steam in the ESSEX.”

Good looking work. I'll echo his comment on the MM Metalizers being very good for their realistic NMF "look". Their down side is their delicacy in handling and also the fact you cannot mask over them. The work great if you can apply them and leave them untouched for the rest of the build.

Thanks, Gil. Kyle sent me an update on my RAF P-47 build, and this is what he said, “Well here are pictures with the prop and tank in place. This is my poor attempt at a photo booth. Amanda was kind enough to hold the walls up, gotta figure something better out.

So all that is left is the antenna mast, underwing lights and landing lights, and I gotta figure something out for wingtip lenses because I lost one to the carpet monster last night.”

Very nice work ... it looks stunning!!

 

I suggest to apply a little more light in the photos ... i think we can't see all the details and all this beautiful work done.
