Description

 

1/32 Trumpeter P-47D-1 “In the Mood”

One more tick to my bucket list.

 

 

This is 1/32 Trumpeter P-47D-1 with the markings of “In the Mood” flown by Captain Gerald W Johnson from 61st Fighter Squadron  56th Fighter Group based in Halesworth England during late 1943.

The cockpit was modified by the Yahu instrument panel and Eduard seat belts. Additionaly, Trumpeter’s late style rudder pedals replaced with MDC early ones.

 

 

For backdating to D-1, the cowling flaps changed by using plastic card.

 

 

I used Eduard’s wheel set.

The belly tank is from my Tamiya spare parts.

 

 

Paints are Gunze Sangyo and Tamiya acrylics.

 

 

Decals are from Zotz Decal set.
