Fujimi 1/72 P-47 Thunderbolt - fit fettling

Got the lower wing on..
here's the underlap, that would have been a wing root gap.
FIlled the gaps in the flaps with a bit of stretched sprue.

Took some sanding to get the cowling to blend in, there was quite a large step. In the process sanded off the lourves, so replaced them with some plasticard. also drilled a couple of holes and added the exhaust bypass.

Added a piece as a sight, and some rails for the canopy.

That silver plastic, really shows up the ghost of rivets past..
