Here is mine. I had a heck of a time getting the bomb pylon inserted into the wing. The one slot on mine was way to small. On this one two the bombs are labeled L and R so beware. The landing gear fit awfully tight on this and was hard to seat all the way in.



The 56th FG received their P-47s in June 1942 and 6 months later went to England. Over the
next two years the 56th FG became the 8th AF’s highest scoring air-to-air combat group with
665.5 victories. 1st Lt. Frank Klibbe, with the 61st FS accumulated 7 victories with the final two
coming on May 8, 1944. Klibbe flew 63 missions and was assigned three different P-47s with two
of them wearing the nose art “Little Chief”. 42-76179 was his third P-47 and used to score four of
his seven victories.

HM did a great job with their Razorback P-47. This one looks really good, art and detail, nice add to your collection.

I was very tempted to get that one a while back but by the time I had decided to press the button they had all gone. I have a bubble top which is very impressive but like to add a razorback some time.
