Modelling the P-47 Thunderbolt Paperback / softback
by Brett Green
Part of the Osprey Modelling series
Paperback / softback
Affectionately nicknamed 'Jug,' the P-47 Thunderbolt was one of the most famous fighter aircraft of WWII.
Nearly 16,000 P-47s were built during the course of the war and they served in Europe, the Pacific, the CBI and even over the Eastern Front.
This widespread service ensured that it amassed more kills than any other US fighter type in World War II.
This book takes you through a variety of different ways to model the P-47 Thunderbolt, from a 1/48-scale P-47D 'Razorback' in USAAF colours to a 1/32-scale full resin kit depicting an RAF Thunderbolt in the Southeast Asian theatre.
