The Republic P-47D Thunderbolt
P-47D Thunderbolt
About this creation
Entering service into the U.S. Air Force In 1943, The P-47 was the largest and heaviest single-seat fighter ever built. Originally used as an escort fighter for the 8th Air Force's strategic bombing offensive, the Thunderbolt's tough construction and heavy firepower allowed it to devastate german armor, troops, transport systems, and airfields in close support of the American armies during 1944-5. It had 8 .5in. machine guns and could carry a 2,000lb. bombload because of it's huge 2,300 Pratt & Whitney r-2800 radial engine with a turbocharger.






This is my external fuel tank, which could be carried instead of bombs.

Hey, thanks for all the comments. Sorry I havent been replying recently, Ive been really busy. No, I dont have instructions, sorry. Thee V. 2 will have to wait, Im halfway through a Sherman. So Ill probably make it in a little bit. I never thought it would be this popular. Again, thanks and keep the criticism coming!

That has to be my favorite plane of the war! Eight 0.50 machine guns, and capable of dive-bombing! Great job!

Thanks for all the reviews guys. I really like all the criticism, it helps a lot. Im thinking of making a version 2. I will probably take away the landing gear, and the wings will be made of sideways peices(I think thats what SNOT is, correct me if Im wrong).

That looks really good! I like the stockiness of the Thunderbolt, makes it look like a real work horse of a fighter. I may try one of these. Could you have a look at my P-51 and/or P-61? Thanks, great work! Peace - Patrick
