Another Raiden jewel. Very nice detail, top and bottom. Mark captured that fat whale look that the Jug carries so gentlemanly. The cowling's curvature is one of the apparently difficult aspects to reproduce, judging from other makers' Thunderbolts, but in this example, it's perfect. This is where GHQ's version fails, and Raiden's P-47 has much more wing scribbling. The wheel wells are accurate, and all the wing detail give all-metal airplanes interesting features. Even the spent casings exit holes are modeled. The fuselage is neither too fat nor too skinny. My copies were so well cast that I just polished them good, then primed the colored parts, and painted them, leaving the natural white metal shine through elsewhere. Later finished them with a clear gloss, of course. They came out really well. The only things that I'd say I miss are the exhaust louvres between the cowling and the wing root, and a rear fuselage exhaust on the underside. But only obsessive-compulsive geeks like me care to even look for that stuff! ;)
