Superscale 48-1146: P-47D Thunderbolts

Units: 509 FS/405 FG




Scott Van Aken

Here we have another P-47D Thunderbolt sheet. This one is for the 509 FS/405 FG and includes two very similarly marked P-47Ds, both in unpainted metal with OD anti-glare panels, red cowl fronts, spinners and canopy surrounds. The recommended kit for this is the Tamiya  version, though you can probably use these markings on any bubbletop P-47, though the areas around the supercharger vent may not fit.

First up is 'Jaywalkin Molecule' as piloted by Robert V. Lipscomb. It has remnants of the Invasion stripes on the lower fuselage.

'The Turtle #10' is the other option and was flown by Charles Dooley. It also has lower fuselage stripes. Both aircraft have the 13' Curtiss-electrical symmetrical prop.

Markings for one with data for one and an excellent placement guide.
