Details

The Repooblic PW-47X (Peewee47), affectionately known as the "Lord T'underin' Bolt", is represented here in colorful European D-Day mission livery. This 1/33? scale model features many historically accurate details such as  Mission "kill" markings and optional Wing Bombs. Nicknamed "Bombs Away!", the colorful paint scheme pays tribute the great fighter squadrons of WW2 with slogans and "sexy" nose art.

 

These feisty little aircraft never actually saw battle in WW2 (most pilots got lost during missions since the aircraft was too small to equip with navigation equipment), but the Peewee47 did prove its worth during a 1944 USO tour in Europe when seven clowns were separated from their troupe during a nighttime German attack.The clowns might have been lost in the dark if they hadn't found the mighty little Peewee47 and all climbed inside the small cockpit to hide. (Clowns are good at that you know!)

 

This model, designed and created by Dave Winfield, features:
6 Pages including cover.
Detailed assembly diagrams and build notes.
4 Pages of full color and detailed parts.
Over 140 parts including internal formers and joiner strips.
Finished Model is 8" long, with 10" wingspan. If you enjoy building this paper model, please contribute a review!
