PostSubject: Mission 7: Hasegawa P-47D Rzorback   Sat Jul 29 2017, 15:57

Since I'd like to get two kits built, I started a bit early to work on my group build model(s).  Unlike some, I just can't do two models at once - my brain just won't focus that way no matter how hard I try to do so.  So today I started the preliminary work on this kit:





My work focused on three tasks:
Prepaint the wings, tanks, bombs, and horizontal control surfaces.






Then I masked and painted the red and white rudder and the olive drab coloring on the fuselage;





And lastly, I masked, painted, and decaled the nose.  Since the decals are over 60 years old and looked to be in extremely bad shape, I wanted to be sure the chief head marking would be usable.  Thankfully, I was able to save these markings and was able to use them.






Now I will begin painting the zinc chromate interiors and start to build the cockpit, landing gear, and wings.
