I've seen this beauty in the flesh, several times it is displayed, quite often, with the rest of Nige's 1/72 scale collection, on the IPMS Kitmaker branch stand. Mal

Well Nige, maybe I wasjust hinting that you are building to many P-47s, or that you take up too much space on the branch stand. Or I was just being kind, or just maybe YOU are just bluffing, or.....................................well OK......................I am going senile......................................it's official Anyway, I'll try again Another wonderful looking P-47 to add to the IPMS Kitmaker branch stand, to goalong with Niges ever growing collection of 1/72 scale models. About time you stepped up a scale Nice one Nige, but next time worn me that you having a new one in a photo feature so that I don't cock up in front of the rest of thye world Mal

Great work Nigel. Very clean NMF. I seriously thought it was quarter scale when I first looked at the pics. It looks sharp with the blue stripes. Too bad the commonwealth countries were never allowed the leeway that the USAAF was in terms of nose art. Every time I see the big empty slab of an undecorated '47 nose I sigh and think, "What potential. That's one less naked girl...."

I know your Secret Project was taking a lot of your time but not your mind as well Oh and another nice Bolt Nige, are you bringing it to Newark Show to go with all the rest?

Very nice Nigel, after seeing your others at the Medway show I look forward to seeing this in the flesh at Newark (if I have the time off) or at Telford. Another nice Jug Ciao Luciano

Mal, you can delete that post. Only 82 people have seen it so far. Nigel, Another inspirational NMF Build. I really need to pull out one of those 1/32 kits.

Thanks everyone. Due to work commitments (unless they change.....again!) I wont be able to make either Newark or Telford Nose art is one of my favourite aspects of P-47's, but its nice to see one without sometimes as well Next time I get to a show with the Bulldogs stand I'll have to place my nmf Jugs together, just so Mal can see that they arent the same,, I might even have something in 1:48 or 1:32 done by then Nige
