Thunderbolt GB Feeler
Posted by rooster513 on Thursday, July 21, 2016 9:59 AM

Hey all,

    I wanted to throw out there the possibility of doing a Thunderbolt Group Build. It would be open to both the P-47 & A-10 Thunderbolts with a start time of around October I think and would probably run a year (open to discussion). I've never built a P-47 before but I've really been itching to. I also haven't hosted a GB myself and would be open to anyone more experieced who would like to co-hostBig Smile. I know there are always several GB's going on and only so much time to build so please let me know what you think. I've posted this in the Aircraft & Group Build section of the forums. Thank you!

Now this might just be the excuse i need to build a P-47, and the time frame suits me fine. Count me in. And don't worry, hosting a GB is easy.

Hi Rooster;

I would like to sign up with a 1/32 Hase bubbletop. Depending on your end dates & completion %, it could be either a new build or the completion of my dad's WWII mount, which is started and pestering me to finish. And then there's the HobbyBoss A-10 in the stash...

No shortage of T-bolts; lucky me!

Thanks, Rooster!  Looking forward to it.  Hopefully, a good solid build of one of my all time favorite planes will get me out of a fchronic build funk!!

Rooster, I'd definitely like to be in on this. I would be in for an A-10 as I don't have one in my collection.

Haha, thanks, Rooster. Why not both indeed? We will see how time goes. But I'm going to order a bottle of the Mr. Paint Interior Dark Gull Green today just so I'm ready.

You can count me in Rooster.  I have a couple of P-47's to pick from, and by the time that this build starts my son might be ready to build his Hobbyboss A-10, so we might get a Two-fer out of this one. 

Mine will be a 1/48 Tamiya P-47D, not sure if bubbletop or not yet though.  I have several markings to choose from, although my favorite has to be "eight nifties"!

It's futile to resist tempestjohnny...give in and embrace the T-Bolt! LOL

Matt - Glad to have you aboard! That'd be great if your son could join us as well!

So when does this thing start?  Whenever it does, it may be a cursed build for me.  I picked up the 1/72 Academy A-10A today at the LHS.  Opened the kit to read the instructions, on the outside are the painting and decal instructions for the A-10.  On the inside, instructions for building a P-51B/C.

Absolutely Colin! Thanks for coming up with another "Thunderbolt" to add to the list.

 

Lawdog- Good to have you aboard, I'll start up a new thread on the GB section soon so discussion can take place if anyone wants, even though the build doesn't start till October.

Thanks all!
