Overview

To pilots of small, streamlined fighters, the P-47D Thunderbolt looked much too massive for combat success. But 'The Jug' proved them wrong - and also ranks as one of the safest single-seat fighters of WWII. This wood kit is modeled after the 366th Fighter Squadron's P47D-30-RA. Uniquely builder-friendly engineering and stable, forgiving flight characteristics make it a fine first (or next) giant scale project! This RTC (Ready To Cover) kit is just like the regular kit, but with the option to develop your own trim scheme.
