1/33 scale Republic P-47 Thunderbolt P-47D-20-RE 332nd FG Tuskegee Airmen

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).

Republic P-47D-20-RE Thunderbolt

The 332nd Fighter Group comprised three squadrons: the 100th FS, 301st FS and 302nd FS, and would later combine with the 99th, 100 and 1001st Fighter groups...creating the famous "Tuskegee Airmen 332nd".
In April 1944, the 332nd began converting from P-39s to P-47s and received their first Thunderbolts from the 325th Fighter group. Some Thunderbolts were stripped of all paint when transferred from the 325th, but many retained their original Olive Drab over Gray paint scheme. At least one of these P-47s had its 325th "checker" tail artwork painted over with red paint. This may have been the first "Red Tail" aircraft for the Tuskegee squadrons.
