P-47 D Skins

Recommended Posts

Italian P-47D (F-47D) we have some of them, receiving not much appreciation , probably because in peace time you cannot enjoy (and survive) the sturdiness.
 

 

Anyone knows if this livery is available somewhere?

Thanks!

 

 

Here pictures and drawing from deviant art a good reference.

Hi Folks,

 

New to the forum - here's a couple of skins from me. With thanks for the original template author. 

 

First up: No Guts, No Glory

 

I'm sure this one has been done before, but a friend asked me to make it for him and thought I'd share here.

Next up: 

 

Jacky's Revenge - Those diamond checks on the nose took hours to line up. But I'm fairly pleased with the results :)

~S~ Rock !

 

Very impressive Rock...very impressed.  Skinning is a real art form.   How long does it typically take to complete a skin along with the art work ?  I've never skinned.  Just curious.

Thank you - Something like this  took 5 or 6 hours as I drew the Indian head and logo from scratch. Something like the checkered nose P-47's took probably double that as I spent at least 6 hours on the checkers alone lining them up on the model seems... Other people will spend a lot of time on specific weathering for every skin which I tend not to do unless it's something special. 

 

All good fun though when you're on lockdown with a lot of time to kill!

No kidding right !  I've been on lock down since March 17th.  Went back to flying online and brushing away the dust and trying to resharpen old skill sets.  Thanks for the reply.  Its nice to know how long something like this takes generally.  I enjoy flying the Jug, hence my tag.

Your skins are very nice VH-Rock but most of the time, nose arts and decorations was only painted on the left side ;)

 I know, I've been skinning for 15 years or so ;)  Every reference I've seen for this one show it on both sides. If you can find period photo evidence to prove the skin is wrong, please provide it and I will happily edit.

This was my first 1:32 scale kit some 45 years ago. I would love to have this skin in BoX but don't know how to do it  (and if the camo is known at all). Anyone? Pls.

Thx a lot for you kind offer. Unfortunately I have never come across this particular camo (it might even be some kind of mixture of different planes, Revell was not that stricked about authenticity in the seventies : ) There are some similar ones, the emblem is on #72 ( a crow throwing bomb) The plane belonged to 527th Fighter Squadron, 86th Fighter group.

- Made the blue nose details lighter - Made the nose halo wider and the diamonds smaller - Made the "Unadilla Killa" emblem a little smaller - Put the "Unadilla Killa" emblem in the right side of the fuselage too

BTW don't you know if anyone has done a skin of major Glenn Eagleston's famous winged skull P-47? We have winged skull P-47 with code letters FT-O but his crate bare FT-L and a picture of bald eagle. I doubt it has been neglected by skinners up to now.
