Product Description

The P-47 "Thunderbolt", built by Republic Aviation, was developed as a heavyweight fighter and made its first flight on May 6, 1941. In April 1943, the Thunderbolt flew its first combat mission: a sweep over Western Europe. Used as both a high-altitude escort fighter and a low-level fighter-bomber, the P-47 quickly gained a reputation for ruggedness. Its sturdy construction and air-cooled radial engine enabled the Thunderbolt to absorb severe battle damage and keep flying. During World War II, the P-47 served in almost every active war theater and in the air forces of the British, Free French, Russians, Mexicans, and Brazilians. By the end of World War II, more than 15,600 Thunderbolts had been built.

Early P-47 aircraft were built with metal-framed "greenhouse" type cockpit canopies ("razor back" "Jug"). Late D series aircraft and all M and N series production aircraft were given clear "bubble" canopies, which gave the pilot improved rearward vision.

About this Handcrafted Wooden Model Aircraft:
This beautiful handmade airplane model is an authentic replica made from the finest grade of select kiln dried Philippine mahogany wood. The model is made entirely by hand: From the handcarving of the aircraft fuselage, to the sanding of the aircraft's contours. Every part is assembled precisely into place. After shaping and sanding, the model passes through several stages of priming and sanding before it is hand painted to duplicate the actual colors, emblems, and insignias of the original historical aircraft. Finally, multiple coats of clear lacquer are applied to protect the artwork and provide an overall glossy finish.


Aircraft Index: By Type & Manufacturer.
Availability: Usually ships in 2-3 business days.
