Hasegawa's new 1/32 scale
P-47D Thunderbolt

by Spencer Pollard


Republic Thunderbolt Mk.II


Hasegawa's 1/32 scale P-47D Thunderbolt is available online from Squadron.com




Spencer Pollard, Editor of Military in Scale magazine, has built not one, but two of Hasegawa's brand new 1/32 scale P-47 Thunderbolts:

The first of my Hasegawa 1/32 scale P-47s is an RAF Thunderbolt Mk.II which saw action in the SEAC theatre. It features painted-on markings replicating a 79 Sqn aircraft as seen in Squadron's 'Thunderbolt In The Pacific Theatre' book.



The second is finished as a P-47 D-30 from the 366th FS/358th FG, Sadhofen, Germany.

This 'Orange Tailed' Jug is illustrated in Osprey's P-47 Thunderbolt Aces of the Ninth and Fifteen Air Forces. Nice scheme eh? ...and one that, along with the British bird, allowed me to finish the models in schemes that represented 1% of finished Jugs rather than 99%!

I hope you like them...

Both models will feature in the July issue of MIS.
