Superscale 48-902: P-47D Thunderbolt

Units: See Review




Scott Van Aken

For the second Thunderbolt sheet, we turn to a couple of bare metal versions.

First off is Glenn Eagleston's mount from the 353rd FS/354th FG before they transitioned to the P-51 Mustang. It carries a yellow cowling and black cowl flaps with an OD anti-glare panel. There is no indication that this one had the fin filet and no prop info is provided as one has normally seen on P-47 sheets in the past.

The second is 'Ay Chiuhuahua' from the 66 FS/57 FG when based on Corsica during 1944. It has a red forward cowl and prop spinner. The yellow bands on the sheet are for this aircraft and one will have to paint the wing pylons prior to attaching them.

No recommended kit is given, but I would imagine that they would fit either the Tamiya or Hasegawa kits and probably others without too much fuss.  Insignia and data markings are provided for one aircraft.
