Here are some pictures of IPMS San Diego alumni Marc Schachter’s P-47D Thunderbolt, based on the Tamiya 1/48 scale kit.
Marc scratch built nearly all of the details on this model, taking around two years to complete it.
It won Best In Show at the 2015 IPMS San Diego ModelExpo and the George Lee Judges’ Grand Award at the 2015 IPMS USA Nationals. Needless to say, it also took the Best Aircraft award at both shows, as well as first place in its category in each.
The pictures below were taken at the 2015 San Diego ModelExpo.
