Here some pictures (need to take better ones) of the P-47 almost done

I used Ad Astra masks (with the minor details in decals)
And for the first time Xtracolor matt varnish , i am really impressed, it gives a dead matt finish
so from now on that will be my standard matt finish

Really conveys that 'heavy metal' impression. Weathering looks great, very consistent, not easy to achieve. 👍

What a nice, huge Thunderbolt!
Top applied decals, smooth paintjob and clean assembling!
That`s what I`ll call "Pleasure for my eyes"
I have one in scale 48 and if I compare it with a 109 it is like David vs. Goliath, must be a large model in scale32?!
What do you mean? A dead matt varnish? What is about the white dusty coating often seen with Acrylic matt varnish??
What`s about the smell??
Another nice "Beauty Roll Out" out of "Jan`s Garage"!!

thanks guys !!
@ Dirk , this is an Enamel matt varnish, the smell is not to strong, and it does take longer that the acrylic varnishes to dry completely (the red nose part is the satin version of that varnish)

The Jug looks excellent! And I´ll definitely give the Xtracolor varnish a try

Pretty nice result in all as previously wrote!
Jan, is this scheme one of the Wolvepack Juggernauts?????
Would you tell me more about the Astra Masks? I know only Astra Decals! Didn`t hear before about Astra Masks!

Hi Jan,
looks very nice your Jugbird!

Jan Goormans
thanks !!

@ Dirk , yes , this is a Wolfpack bird

and for the masks : Ian from Ad Astra makes whatever you want
so mail him some pictures and he will the make masks (for the smaller items decals)
you have a unique model then
the link: http://www.adastramasks.com/index.html
i also have a few of his more standard masks sets for my Spitfire in the stash
but he has lots of work, so it takes a while

another possibility is to contact Mal from Miracle Masks
link: http://www.freewebs.com/miraclemasks/
same story here, also Mal has lots of work
Mal is doing the masks for the Dauntless that i am building

hope this helps

Thx, for your reply!
It helps well!!
So now I habe a solution to get my own decals for my "Cicogne" Mirage III as seen in the movies " Les aventures du M. Tanguy et E. Laverdure!
7. January 2013, 14:43
Jan Goormans
yep 🙂
and i am using this solution more and more,
i can build the plane i want without being limited by what's available on decals

Hello Jan, your Thunderbolt looks really great! Very subtile and convincing weathering; it´s a pleasure to study your work. Congratulations to this!
