Following the release of 1/48 Republic P-47D Thunderbolt "Razorback" and "Bubbletop" versions, Tamiya further increases the range of choices available to modelers with the development of the P-47M. New parts include vertical dorsal fin, air brakes, cockpit parts and new markings.

About the Republic P-47M Thunderbolt
Introduced as a fighter escorts for bombers attacking the German homeland, the Republic Thunderbolt went through the Razorback and Bubbletop variations as it fulfilled its duty. The P-47M was a special high-speed fighter that was specially designed to counter German threats like the V-1 buzz bomb and new jet-powered fighters evolved by the Luftwaffe. The P- 47M featured a P-47D-28-RE airframe fitted with a high-powered R-2800-57 engine capable of top speed of 761km/h, while air brakes were installed underneath the wings to aid in deceleration. Rushed to service with the 56th Fighter Group in Europe, the P-47M only saw combat in the last few weeks of the war, yet achieved the distinction of downing a German Me262 jet fighter.

About the Model

  • New parts for depicting late-war P-47M include 1: Choice of 3 types of vertical dorsal tail fin. 2: Air bakes fitted under wings, behind landing gear, with landing lights relocated to wing tips. 3: Flat type cockpit floor, instrument panel, rudder pedal and side walls made from new parts. 4: Decelerator located on engine front.
