There was a big gap between the fuselage and the wing. I used a combination of jelly-like instant adhesives and plastic styrene adhesives. I think that the joint part became clean though made the airplane after a long time.
By the way, it is not this kit, but the other day I was net surfing from a morning on Sunday as to whether I would like to make an airplane model. I have not seen the net shop at all recently to avoid ordering and increasing the stock, ｗhen checking for the first time in half a year, I found a bargain sale at a nearby hobby shop on that day! Although it was a policy not to increase Model Kit stash anymore, at the end of last year’s bargain sale I was sorry that I could not go to the shop while traveling in a hot spring, now when I noticed I was in front of the store… I bought 1/48 Airfix Bf109 and Spitfire and Eduard I-16, Also, I got a bonus of 1/72 biplanes, Gladiator, and Swordfish, I was very lucky. The Stock Point, which I made little by little and decreased, went up by 5 points at a breath. Well, I’ll decide not to worry about it.
The rocket was painted in black iron color, but it seems to be wrong after all. It is better to paint it silver. Because I am not accustomed to the Revell kit, it is confusing to decipher the paint instructions.
Checking the front edge of the main wing after painting the silver, it has been irregular so I’m placing the putty. I do not care about the lower side of the aircraft so much since the front side stands out when decorated, I think that I will paint it as neatly as possible.
The type N is the final model of the P-47 Thunderbolt. To fulfill the escorting mission accompanying the strategic bomber, it was necessary to extend the cruising distance. To install additional fuel, it is only necessary to add to the main wing other than the drop tank, and the type N has become the main wing of a completely different shape from the previous one. It was a very excellent aircraft in late WWII that also carries out bombing missions.
Revell shows production skill levels from 1 to 5, and since this P-47N is level 4, it is the next level of the most difficult one. It seems to be roughly divided by the total number of parts. The part of rockets and bombs, probably, the number of parts has increased.
There was advice on the other marking that the antenna wire should be set, and this aircraft did not have it. I wonder if the line was stretched. I imagine that it was enough as much as three antennas and no need for lines.
On the backside of the right-wing, there is a stamp of Revell 1997 U.S.A. I dare to leave it as a memorial mark because it is an invisible place, it’s a kit about 20 years ago… It seems just recently.
There is somewhat a burr and the gates are thick, but if assembled carefully it was not so difficult. Just honestly, it’s harder than Tamiya and Hasegawa. The decal is very beautiful and of good quality.
As I saw the package, I thought blue would stand out more, after the building was finished. Maybe the box art has such a strong impression because the back is sea blue and the box is also blue. There is a slight blue paint on the nose and tail, it is a nice coloring and accent.
I am interested in models of tanks, airplanes, ships, military figures, I build it little by little when I feel like it. I am also interested in the history of war. My starting is Tamiya’s Military Miniature series in the elementary school.
From elementary school through university students repeatedly suspend and restart my modeling, it’s about 25 years of this hobby’s history.
Born in February 1970, I live in Tokyo. From February 2007 I was quietly doing a site called “Miniature-Arcadia”. It is being transferred to this blog with the same name from December 2016. My update pace is uneven, but please come to see here occasionally.
