Description Extended Information
 
Hobby Master HA8407 USAAF Republic P-47D Thunderbolt Fighter - CO. Col. David Schilling, "Hairless Joe", 56th Fighter Group, England June 1944 (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 P-47D Thunderbolt Fighter that was piloted by CO. Col. David Schilling and nicknamed "Hairless Joe", who was attached to the 56th Fighter Group, then deployed to England, during June 1944. Now in stock!
