1/33 scale Republic P47D Thunderbolt Tallahassee Lassie Paper Model

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).

44-33133  Republic P-47D-40-RA Thunderbolt is owned and operated by Flying Heritage Collection (Everett Washington)
and is recreated as WW2 fighter Tallahassee Lassie, as flown by Col. Ralph C. Jenkins.
Col. Jenkins led the 510th Fighter Squadron based in England
and is rumored to be the pilot that attacked and wounded Field Marshal Erwin Rommel in his Staff Car.
This story is widely disputed, but there is no doubt of Jenkins contribution as a WW2 Fighter hero.
