P47 Thunderbolt

Just a beast of a machine. Pure power under the hood. Not as pretty as the Mustang but effective nevertheless.

However once it lost altitude it could never regain it quick enough.

 A tank of a ground attack aircraft. More lost to AA fire than enemy combat I believe. It roamed mercilessly on search and destroy missions behind enemy lines and in close cooperation with ground force.

This is a 1/144 Academy kit, used primarily as a Western Allies 1944 air asset marker for my 20mm games, although part of me hopes to be able to dogfight with it some day :)
