Description Extended Information
 
Armour Collection B11F037 USAAF Republic P-47D Thunderbolt Fighter - Colonel Robert Baseler, "Big Stud", 325th Fighter Group "Checkertail Clan" (1:48 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" for its bulky shape, the Republic P-47 Thunderbolt was considered a monster of a machine. Despite its size, the Thunderbolt proved to be a fast and maneuverable warbird able to hold its own in combat. In fact, when Allied pilots climbed aboard a P-47, they knew the were in control of a fighting machine with enormous power. More importantly, they knew that if their aircraft was hit but gunfire, they had an excellent chance of making it home.

Pictured here is a 1:48 scale replica of a USAAF Republic P-47D Thunderbolt fighter that was piloted by Colonel Robert Baseler and nicknamed "Big Stud", which was attached to the 325th Fighter Group "Checkertail Clan". Sold Out!
