Superscale 72-830: P-47D Thunderbolt

Units: 56 FG




Scott Van Aken

Most male modeler like a nice pair of Jugs and this sheet provides just that. Both of these are razorback versions and are both done in OD over Neutral Grey. The recommended kit is the Tamiya version, but many of us have the nice Hasegawa or Academy kit squirreled away and this sheet will look equally nice on them.

First up is 'Hollywood High Hatter' from the 61 FS. It has a red cowl front and uses the 13' Curtiss-Electric symmetrical prop.

The other is from the 63 FS, also with a red cowl. 'Ol Steel Butt' uses a 12'2" Curtiss-Electric prop. It also has lower Invasion Stripes and a lighter OD over where they were on the top of the fuselage.

Full insignia and data markings are provided for both planes.
