About the Book - Modelling the P-47 Thunderbolt
The P-47 Thunderbolt, affectionately nicknamed the ‘Jug’,
was one of the most famous fighter aircraft of World War II. Used as both a
high-altitude escort fighter and a low-level fighter-bomber, it quickly gained a
reputation for being tough and resilient.
Several air forces operated the Jug, and it sported a wide
range of camouflage schemes, finishes and markings, including stunning nose art.
Tamiya's 1/48 scale kit by Steve Palffy
Modellers have been well served with Thunderbolt kits over
the years, right up to the latest highly accurate releases.
This book takes a step-by-step approach to modelling a
wide variety of P-47 types in 1/48 scale, from ‘Razorbacks’ in USAAF colours to
RAF T-bolts in the Far East. It provides advice on conversions (including a
Bubbletop to a P-47M), adding aftermarket items, detailing, and ways to achieve
top quality weathering and finishes.
