1/33 scale Republic P-47 Thunderbolt 44-32691 P-47D-30-RA

The Republic P-47 Thunderbolt gained its impressive reputation in Europe during the Second World War. Dubbed the Juggernaut, was able to take as much punishment as it gave out and bring its pilot safely home.
It was considered to be the "biggest, toughest and most dependable single engine Fighter of WW2".  Thunderbolt pilots flew with confidence behind the roar of a 2,000-horsepower radial engine and the devastating firepower of eight .50 caliber machine guns. The combination of strong reliable engine and heavy armament made the P-47 a feared ground-attack aircraft.
The Thunderbolt was generally considered by Military Commanders, as one of the top three American fighters, along with the P-51 Mustang and P-38 Lightning.
More P-47s were bult than any other fighter airplane (in the US).

42-27385  Republic P-47D-27-RE Thunderbolt converted to YP-47M

With war hero Bill Odom as the Pilot,it was eneterd in the 1947 Bendix Air Races at Cleveland but did not qualify due to a fuel leak.
Sponsored by the Dallas Aero Service and Lear Autopilots, the "Dallas Reynolds Bombshell" honored the original Reynolds Bombshell...an A-26 Invader flown around the world in record time by Odom and Reynolds.
