Hi guys! It's been a while...
Here is my recent build of Revell's 1/72 kit, with Life Like decals "Tarheel Hal". I hope you like it! Enjoy!

Hi Panos.
Sweet job on a very distinctive scheme.
How did the decals work for you?

Nicely Done Panos, I was amazed when you said it's 1/72 scale!

Hi Nige! The only problem that i came up with the decals was the "nose"! The decal that Life like provides for the nose part was a little bit big for Revells P-47, but with some cuts and touch ups with paint i think it comes out really nice! The decal for the cowl flaps is a little bit short as well, but if you paint them (cowl flaps) red and place after the decal it shouldn't be a problem!

Hi Paul! The base is a picture frame from IKEA, with a custom made printing about the information of the "Tarheel Hal" really cheap and fast to make!

Hi Allen and John! Thanks again guys!

Beautiful job, my friend! You have raised the bar for us 72ers. Very inspiring.

Alclad finish? The panel shading and edging is very nice. I have yet to try that with Alclad.

Thanks a lot Tom! I really appreciate it! The hole bird was covered with household aluminum foil, except the inner-outer doors of the landing gear, fuel tank and the turbocharger panel, which where sprayed with alclad airframe aluminum!

Hi Yiorgos!
Sorry for the late reply, but you know.... we have to work hard to buy models...
Thank you for your very kind words, I tried my best! As far as the paint job at the wheel wells and the "inside doors" of the lading gear, are painted with Tamiya's XF-4 Yellow-Green, which I think is the closest to the colors I've seen so far from pictures.... (according to my bibliography and our fellow modelers from the site).

Thanks again
