Superscale 48-901: 57 FG P-47D Thunderbolt

Units: 57 FG




Scott Van Aken

It is not often that Superscale does a single subject on a sheet, but this one is a definite exception. 'Wicked Wabbit' is covered with markings, from its large artwork, to the large unit insignia to its yellow wing and tail bands. You get it all on this one sheet.

The plane itself is from the 65 FS/57 FG and is in OD over Neutral Grey with a red forward cowling and spinner. You'll notice that the insignia on the P-47D-15 is farther aft than one normally sees so there is no need for the extra bits to go into the turbocharger exhaust doors.

The instructions state that the sheet will fit both the Tamiya and Hasegawa kit, and may well fit other razorback P-47s.
