Default Ruthles Ruthie

Just a few pics of my TFGS P47. It is a kit built fuse and a ARF wing. Glassed and painted with Model masters paints and Terry farmers stencils. Rivets and panel lines and some steel wool to knock the clean off of it. I will be dirtying her up and putting her in the sunlight for some real pics. So enjoy. learned alot on this one when it came to trying some new methods for detailing. Oh yea, the other side of the cowl has Lady jane IV stenciled on it. Interesting story behind the fullsize. Excuse my messy basement....no more room even for this plane.
