Superscale 48-913: P-47D Thunderbolts

Units: 86 & 350 FG




Scott Van Aken

For the second new P-47 Sheet, we have two more bare metal  bubble-tops. Again, no specific kit is recommended, but again, I'd go with the Tamiya or Hasegawa kit.

First up is 'OleMissouri/The Jawbone' from the 527 FS/86 FG. Thos one has red on the spinner of the 13' Curtiss-Electfic asymmetrical prop and the front of the cowl. The cowl flaps are in yellow and the anti-glare panel in black. Apparently only the upper sides of the tail planes were marked with the red stripes on this one.

The other is 'Torrid Tessie' from the 346 FS/350 FG. It has a 13' Curtiss Electric symmetrical prop and an OD anti-glare panel. Parts of the underside are painted black to cover up the exhaust staining.

Common markings and insignia supplied for one aircraft.
