Hello all well I have decided that I am going to do a comparison build. I will build a 1/32 Hasagawa P-47D and a Trumpy P-47D. Seeing how this is my favorite fighter of WWII it should be fun. The plan is to build both pits and compare and then the R2800 engine etc etc. You get the point. I will start posting some pics this weekend. Let me know what you think of the idea. Not sure if i will do 1 bubbletop and 1 razorback or two bubbletops.
I'm hoping to make the deadline for campaign build so wish me luck.

All the best

Well after looking at my schedule at work "Police Officer" and the time line in which I have to work, I have decided to do just one. I have seen so many fine models here its going to hard to beat whats been pictured already. I will go with a Trumpy build up as there is one already for VFS and Hasagawa.

All the best

Hi Roy, welcome to P-47 Heaven and the Kitmaker Network.

A build of the Trumpeter offering would be nice as there was a question on here recently asking which is beter between Hasegawa and Trump. Don't worry about how long it takes as long as you have fun doing it.

Cheers

Thanks for the welcome. I was thinking the same thing, I havn't seen a build up thread of a Trumpy P-47 yet. Mine will be the Razorback instead of the bubbletop. Nice to here from you!!!

Roy:

I have to agree with Allen's sentiments. A trumpy build would be great.

The real question is which Bird are you going or leaning toward doing? Will you stick to the kit offerings or go out and get some AM Decals.

Keep us posted and as Allen has already said Welcome Aboard and Have Fun.

Great choice. Although eiether one on the sheet is a winner. Those checkerboard tails are a thing of beauty.

Just hang tight and ask questions if you get stuck. Pictures and answers will just fall from the sky.

Thanks Paul boy trying to use this picture system can be tough. I moved from one web site where all I used was Photobucket. Sorry about all the deletions. Now if I can just make the picture bigger?

Don't worry about it I find it difficult using the Kitmaker gallery also so I just use Photobucket myself.

To me Photobucket is the easiest to use. All I do is copy & Paste the IMG tag from photobucket to here(no need to use the codes at the bottom of this msg box) in the message and picture is there. Also if you want them bigger you can make them bigger on Photobucket and Usually the same size will be transferred to here.

Can't wait to see the progress on your build

Well lads I had a minor set bak in the modeling area this weekend. My wife came down with the flu and I was happy homemaker, babysitter, nurse and husband, so no time to model. The trumpy razor is sitting on my table ready to go. I should be able to send cockpit photos this Thursday.

All the best
