1/16 Scale. 30 1/4″ wing span. All the kits in this series feature Movable parts and motors can be installed motors not included. Although partially overshadowed by the famous Mustang, the Republic P-47 Thunderbolt established a distinguished record as a high altitude interceptor and bomber escort. More Thunderbolts were manufactured during World War 2 than any other American fighter, and the seven-ton aircraft became extremely popular with A.A.F. pilots because of its ability to absorb extensive battle damage and remain flying. Perhaps the most outstanding tribute to this aircraft is the fact that all 10 of the leading Thunderbolt aces survived the war. The P-47 could easily out dive the enemy fighters and could dish-out terrible punishment form its eight 50 cal. Browning machine guns. Skill level 2
1:32 16 1/2″ wing span. These easy building kits contain die-cut balsa parts, plastic cowls and canopies, decals, plastic prop, wheels, tissue and a 24-page model building booklet.

This immortal partner of the Supermarine Spitfire destroyed the German bombers while the Spitfires engaged the Messerschmitt BF-109’s. The Hurricane was the first combat aircraft capable of exceeding 300 M.P.H., and it became the most versatile single-seat warplane to emerge from World War 2. This plane was used in the Western Desert conflict as a fighter-bomber and a modified version, called the Sea Hurricane, became the first single-seat fighter to serve with the Fleet Air Arm.
