After a couple weeks of other projects, I decided to build a few planes. This is a WWII USAAF P47.
It's probably at least 15 years old, it's 1/72nd scale from Matchbox.
Matchbox kits are now made by Revell. They are generally simple and durable, two characteristics that wargame airplanes need.
Here's an old trick I learned many years ago. I hold the fuselage together by using these little rubber bands that are used for tightening braces. I went to my daughter's orthodontist and asked for some and they just gave them to me. One little pack lasts a very long time and they make several different sizes.
