Though it may not have been considered "sleek", the P-47D Thunderbolt was nonetheless a durable, dependable fighter during WWII, with a reputation for returning pilots home alive. Top Flite has brought this nostalgic aircraft back to life with an authentic 1/8 sport scale version of the "Bonnie" P-47D-23 Razorback. As with all Top Flite Warbirds, careful attention to detail is evident throughout, and Gold Edition kit engineering means any intermediate-level modeler will enjoy building and flying this faithful reproduction of a vintage warrior.
- Computer-designed interlocking parts allow the P-47D to go together quickly and accurately. Photo-illustrated instructions and full-size, rolled plans help the assembly process go smoothly.
- Many precision-formed scale parts add to the authenticity of the plane's appearance.
- The airfoils used on the P-47D Thunderbolt were developed by Dr. Michael Selig of the Low Speed Airfoil Test Program at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. They provide stable, more forgiving R/C warbird flight.
- High-quality hardware comes with the kit, making building and flying the P-47D even more enjoyable.
