I have finally finished assembling my 1/24 'silver' P-47D. I've put four pics of the build in my gallery ( http://www.cardmodels.net/gallery/browseimages.php?c=15 )- take a look. It's a nice big fat model. The 'metal' effect is actually quite good, even though it's actually all artwork; although my mediocre camera work can't quite do it justice. The model looks especially nice with adequate light. I am making instructions now and should be done in about a week. After that I will offer a recolored version (olive drab). After that I never want to see another P-47 again... so I will be designing a tank (M-48). John.
