P-47 Jug: The Waste Gate

FMS overlooked this one!

One nice attribute to the nose of the P-47 is the Waste Gate for that massive Pratt&Whitney 18 Cly. Wasp engine! So I decided I'd build my own.

UP-DATE 10/21/2010: I wasn't satisfied with my original idea for the Oil Cooler Vent and Deflector shield, so I went back to drawing board and come up with something a bit more scale.

Makes for a better looking scale oil cooler vent/defector shield. I made the originals out of wood, then cast them in mold putty. Once I had the molds done, I just filled them with epoxy resin. The exhaust tubes are actually cut-offs pieces of the FMS plastic machine guns!
