Guillow's Big Scale Balsa P-47D Thunderbolt

  • Wingspan: 768mm
  • Scale: 1:16

The Republic P-47 Thunderbolt established a distinguished record as a high altitude interceptor and bomber escort. More Thunderbolts were manufactured during World War 2 than any other American fighter, and the seven-ton aircraft became extremely popular with A.A.F. pilots because of its ability to absorb extensive battle damage and remain flying. Perhaps the most outstanding tribute to this aircraft is the fact that all 10 of the leading Thunderbolt aces survived the war. The P-47 could easily out dive the enemy fighters and could “dish-out” terrible punishment from its eight 50 cal. Browning machine guns.
