The model is conventional; all wood construction and moulded accessories are available, along with a laser cut wood pack.

It is not suitable for beginners, either to plan building or model flying.

The P-47D Thunderbolt was one of the most famous planes of WWII. It was an outstanding single-seat fighter plane that excelled in high altitude bomber escort and low altitude ground attacks. The fighter was involved in air-to-air combat and ground attacks in both the WWII European and Pacific theatres. To solve the problem of visibility issues in earlier models later Thunderbolt models were redesigned with a transparent bubble canopy, leading to the birth of the ‘Bubbletop’.
