Details

The Pilot: Donald- Mac- McKibben flew with the famed Bluenosers of the 352nd Fighter Group, based out of Bodney, England. He flew with the 486th Squadron and was one of the original pilots, flying the P-47 during the first quarter of 1944. The bulk of his missions were flying escort protecting the bomber streams on their way to and from Fortress Europe.

 

A John Mollison print of this aircraft, autographed by pilot McKibben, is available.


The Plane: The Republic P-47 Thunderbolt started out as an air-superiority fighter, but found true fame as a powerful, rugged fighter-bomber. Designed using the lessons painfully won by other Allied aircraft types in early combat against the Germans and Japanese, the Thunderbolt was designed to have an excess of available engine power, heavy pilot armor, and a devastating eight-gun armament.

 

Paper Model Details: 142 parts, six diagrams, wire templates. Fuselage formers with joining strips; wing spar with airfoil formers. Rolled landing gear legs, layered wheels, opaque canopy with shadowed graphic interior, printed wheel well detail. Two bombs. Degree of Difficulty: 3/5
