P-47N Thunderbolt – Revell
At nearly 10,000 lbs (4,536 kg) empty the P-47 Thunderbolt never should have gotten off the ground. But the Thunderbolt didn’t just fly, it was also able to defeat German and Japanese fighters. The model was even credited with downing several early jet-powered aircraft.
This heavily-armored, eight .50 caliber MG-armed beast was upgraded so that the P-47N could escort B-29 bombers on 2,000 mile (3,220 km) raids. This kit features detailed surfaces, cockpit, undercarriage and 18-cylinder engine plus missiles, bombs and decals for two USAAF planes.
