Here's a build feature of Tamiya's 1/72 scale P-47D Razorback kit by Nigel Julian (Lampie) with some useful tips on how to achieve a nice faded effect on the camouflage.

Excellent build and review Nige. As additional info, I used the kit supplied decals for a different build and they seemed to work excellently! Of all the builds I have done, this kit is by far my favorite; very enjoyable.

Thanks, and again nice write-up.

Very nice build, Nige

Thanks for the feature and some helpful tips. These birds sure had colourful markings....

Thanks for the comments guys.
These Tamiya P47's really are a cut above the rest.
Hopefully we will see some different variants in the not too distant future.
With the large amount of aftermarket decals available in both 1:72 and 1:48 its quite easy to accumulate a very colourfull collection of Thunderbolts. ( I certainly intend to )
