Description Extended Information
 
Dragon DRW50126 USAAF Republic P-47D Thunderbolt Fighter - 353rd Fighter Squadron, 354th Fighter Group (1:72 Scale) "Why should we have a navy at all? There are no enemies for it to fight except apparently the Army Air Force."
- General Carl Spaatz, Commander of the US 8th Army Air Force, after WWII

Nicknamed the "Jug", the P-47D was one of the most important, widely produced fighter of the American Air Force during the WWII. Although the P-47D was the largest and heaviest single-seat aircraft to see service in the Second World War, it became a high speed and high altitude capable fighter when powered by the huge 2000hp Pratt & Whitney R-2800 "Double Wasp" engine and a unique supercharging system. Shaped with a sharp upper ridge, the early types of P-47D were given a name "Razorback". During the war, the Razorbacks served as striking fighters and sometimes escort fighters of the allied bombers when conducting raids over Germany.

Pictured here is a 1:72 scale replica of a P-47D Razorback flown by Major Glenn Eagleston of the 353rd Fighter Squadron, 354th Fighter Group. Sold Out!
