Probably one of the quickest builds I've done in a long time, I managed to finish the P-47 on Sunday just gone (4th June 2017).
This is the well known 1/48 P-47D by Taimiya. No introductions are needed for it as it's been established as 'the' P-47 to build in 48th scale. The kit is well know for its accuracy, ease of construction and popularity.
I’ve built it to represent “The Reamer’ flown by Lt. Jack H. Reams of the 347FS, 350FG USAAF during their deployment in Italy during 1944-1945. The connection of course being the pilot and my son share the same name, there always has to be a link!
