Description

The P-47 was the first single-seated fighter to be equipped with a supercharger paired with a 2000hp engine, allowing it to fly at the same high altitude as bombers. Armed with eight 12.7mm machine guns, the Thunderbolt, with the P-51 Mustang, constituted the main fighters of the US Army Air Force.

This kit is of the early production P-47D that was nicknamed "razorback" because of the shape of its upper fuselage behind the cockpit. The P-47D was a high-speed, high-altitude capable fighter and escorted the allied bombers that were conducting raids over Germany. Its 1-ton payload and its robustness made the Thunderbolt the perfect aircraft for ground attacking missions.  

  • Sharp design of rear fuselage accurately reproduced.
  • Joining beams used to attach wings to fuselage, ensuring accurate wing angle.
  • Loads of accessories including 2 x 108 gallon tanks, 2 x 500 pound bombs and 2 x M10 rocket launchers.
  • For extra accuracy, kit comes with two different propellers to match decal markings.
  • Decals for 2 fighter groups, including one from Europe and one from the Pacific.
