I don’t normally build planes, but I need a break from cars so I picked up this kit.
Its Tamiya's 1/72 scale P-47D Thunderbolt

I know its not a car, but I used the weathering skills I learned from my car models to make it... just goes to show how you can use the same techniques on any kind of model

The first model I ever built was a P47D. I was 6 yrs old(54 yrs ago). It didn't look anything like yours!. Hopefully my skills have improved a little bit since then.
