Antonio R Yep of the P-47 so fare the Revell one was the most fun to build I Just also finished the same Hasegawa and it build very well but be careful with the decals they break easy and also the instructions for the decals are not really clear so take your time, I screw up with tail section , and in a moment of distraction i put a decal in the wrong place .
Anyway of the two I had more fun with the Revell.
Edgars Bizūns Ahh mates, if I could get this plane in 1/144 scale, I mean, good kit, I would build it. But.. This went on for such a good price, that's why I took it. It is also not that big, tbh, I have some bigger planes in 1/144.
You will propably see me on LSP next year, haha, I'm getting Revell 1/32 Spitfire!
Antonio, this kit has new decals, but I will maybe build French version with Revell decals, so problems with that. I will be careful, thnaks

Antonio R Edgar Sorry i was not clear, the Revell decals are supper cool and no problem to up them on but the Hasegawa ones are not really good, in my opinion.

Holger Kranich I agree with Antonio, these Revell decals are quite cool!

Edgars Bizūns Aye! They indeed are, but.. I've had problems with revell decals..
Guy Golsteyn Hi! I have a question concerning this Revell kit. I'm looking for a decent 1/72 P 47 Thunderbolt 'bubbletop', and I wonder if this kit is any good? Or should I go for the Tamiya kit (60770)? Is the Tamiya kit really a Tamiya or is it a reboxed Italeri?
Malte D Hi Guy! Can't say much about the Tamiya one, but this Revell kit is really good! Nice engraved details, no major flaws.

Wilfried Bogaerts Yep, one of the better P-47's on the market. Don't know about accuracy because I don't care, but it should be a perfectly buildable model. The Tamiya kit is a genuine Tamiya mould and is also very very good. My advice, build both of them

Wilfried Bogaerts A fellow club member is currently building the Tamiya 72nd scale P-47D Razorback and it looks awesome, no extras needed, beautiful cockpit OOB

Guido Haesevoets The Revell one is on my wishlist, but mainly because it has decals for a French version... I believe it sells around 5 ~ 6 euros... meaning that "you cannot be gekl..t" for that money...
Here's what: buy both and compare which one is the nicest. I'll take the other one afterwards.

babak chalangi guy golsteyn i checked ! tamiya isnt used italeri kit it's a different kit and i got to say tamiya did an hell of a job on it's own P-47

Lionel Marco This kit is a real gem, and in France 3 times less expensive than the japanese kit
So unless you don't want a late-production Jug, go for the Revell kit: you won't be disappointed!

Guido Haesevoets To confirm what Lionel indicated: in Sturm's email from today the Tamiya P-47D Bubbletop is listed for 20,70 euro.

Holger Kranich Guy, take the Revell-One. I build it last year and the fit and details are great! Dont need to say that the decals are great, too! This kit is a fast and clean build!
14. February 2012 at 13:44:30
Holger Kranich Btw, the canopy is moveable and interiordetail is wonderful. I only added a harness, thats all.
14. February 2012 at 13:49:00
Guy Golsteyn Ok. I'm convinced now. I'll buy the Revell kit because the 'evidence' is overwhelming

Holger Kranich Tamiya vs Revell... Its not often seen that Revell wins! But ins this case its deserved!
