Superscale 48-996: P-47 Thunderbolts

Units: 404 FG


$ 8.00


Scott Van Aken

Once again, a nice pair of P-47 markings options. This sheet is sized for the Hasegawa or the Tamiya kits though I'm sure you could make them fit the Otaki, Monogram or any other 1/48 Thunderbolt. Both aircraft are in unpainted metal with OD anti-glare panels. Both have Invasion Stripes of various sizes. An aluminum background decal is provided so you don't have to worry about properly painting around it. Data markings and insignia are provided for one aircraft.

First up is the P-47D-22 of Lt Russell Fredendall of the 507th FS. This razorback has a black cowl front and is named 'Joan' with the usual mass of mission markings!

The other is Robert Bealle's P-47D-28 named 'Black Panther' and with the appropriate artwork. This 506 FS aircraft is generally devoid of any of the bright colors one normally associates with late war USAAF aircraft.
