Easy Model 1/72 Scale Republic P-47D Thunderbolt, USAAF 356th FG, 361st FS, Zombie, Thomas Bailey, Philipines, 1945
Designed by Alexander Kartveli meeting a USAAC requirement for a heavy fighter, the P-47 was first flown on May 6th, 1941. Later models featured a bubble-top canopy rather than the sharply peaked razorback fuselage which resulted in poor visibility for the aircrafts pilot. The P-47, a deadly pursuit aircraft, featured 8 x 12.7mm machine guns; all mounted in the wings. Even with the complicated turbosupercharger system, the sturdy airframe and tough radial engine, the P-47 (Jug or Juggernaut as it was nicknamed) could absorb damage and still return home. Built in greater quantities than any other US fighter, the P-47 was the heaviest single-engine WWII fighter and the first piston-powered fighter to exceed 500 mph.
