Manuel Guajardo masterfully builds a 1/48 Tamiya P-47M Thunderbolt, No. 61096. He builds a P-47D, but had to use Tamiya’s P-47M since it was the only release with the tail fillet. This Republic P-47D is built as it appeared in Mexico in the mid-1950s prior to its retirement. Manuel’s father was in the Mexican Air Force and saw this aircraft first hand.

Equipment and Parts Used: -Tamiya Paint -1/48 Aires, P-47M Thunderbolt cockpit set (No. 4476)* -1/48 Aztec Models, Latin American P-47, Juicy Jugs I (D-044) -1/48 Brengun, P-47 FLAPS (BRL48025) -1/48 Quickboost, Republic P-47D Thunderbolt – Engine (No. 48 005)* -1/48 Tamiya, Republic P-47M Thunderbolt, No. 61096.
