Nigel Julian (Lampie) is becoming a bit of a buff on the P-47 Thunderbolt, so it isn''t surprising that he bought a1/32nd scale kit. And for our benefit he reviews Hasegawa''s new Jug.

Nice review. Spot on with my observations of the kit. This will be one big beautiful build.

Any AM in the works for this one?

Hi Carl.
Eduard have a couple of PE sets in their October release list. An interior and exterior set, both labelled as P-47-D25, so they could well include some corrective cockpit detail for the "Gabreski" schemes in this kit.
Eduard already market 1:32 pre painted seatbelts which are suitable for this, and Cammett have a range of metal tubes which will replace the kits gun barrels.
Weighted resin wheels,in both styles. are available from Spada Decals, and Black Box are planning to release a cockpit detail set with the earlier type corrugated floor.
