Samantha,

Great job! I am thinking about using the same markings for my Tamiya P-47M.

I really like the colors.

Which paints did you use and how did you mask the camo job?

Wow, Samantha, great job!

I love the camo scheme, you really did a super job on it.

Are the decals from the kit, or did you find them A.M.?

Cheers,
Mike

Thanks guys,

Matt - the paints used were Tamiya's the light blue was a custom mix that Allen did for me until I was happy with the shade the dark blue was XF-8 the rudder was a custom mix as stated by the Tamiya instructions, the camo was masked using the "Blu-tac" method.

Mike - the decals are after market (I nicked them off Allen ) the decals are from Eagle Strike, set 48238 Link to Item

VERY NICE, SAM!!! Keep up the great work! I really like that BLUE camo scheme. Right now, I have a TAMIYA '47D "Bubble-Top" which is scheduled for a factory-fresh "Plain Jane"- no "Nose Art" overall NATURAL METAL paint job with an OLIVE DRAB Anti-Glare Panel and a TAMIYA P-51D that will be painted in the same theme. I go "all out" on all of my models, with resin and PE upgrades, after-market decals, etc. Once I finish those two, I'll go ahead and build a Two-Tone BLUE 56th 'Bolt...
