Dragon Warbirds 50126
Republic P-47D Thunderbolt
USAAF 354th FG, 353rd FS, Major Glenn Eagleston
1/72 Scale


A Classic Dragon Wings P-47D.

The leading ace in the World War II Ninth Air Force in Europe, Eagleston was credited with 18 1/2 victories, two probable victories, and seven damaged German aircraft. He also destroyed at least five enemy aircraft on the ground. Eagleston was known as a "fighter pilot's fighter pilot." He flew almost 100 combat missions in the P-51 and P-47 in Europe - some as a 22 year old Squadron Commander.


With the start of hostilities in Korea, he was assigned there as Squadron and Group Commander, flying F-86s for 84 combat missions and being credited with two MiG-15s destroyed, one probable, and seven damaged. Colonel Eagleston wears the Distinguished Service Cross, Silver Star, Distinguished Flying Cross, Legion of Merit, Bronze Star, and French Croix de Guerre.
