"The Brat" flown by Lt Randall 'Pat' Murphy, 63rd Fighter Squadron, 56th Fighter Group, APRIL 1945. This model is the latest boxing of the Tamiya P-47 family. Any of you that follow my model building habits know that I don't build WWII

However, I actually won this kit in a raffle and having heard so many good things about the quality etc decided to do a quick build. Three weeks later, here is the result. This kit certainly is the jewel in Tamiya's 1/48 range to-date. The decals are from Aeromaster 48-783. Upper surface paints are Tamiya Acrylic whilst the lower surfaces natural metal is Alclad II Stainless Steel.
