The P-47 was a workhorse during the last half of WWII. The craft was large and heavy but thanks to a powerful engine and solid design the P-47D could perform with great agility. Commonly used to escort U.S. bombers, the craft was also quite capable of ground attack. Nearly 12,602 "D" models were built, more than any other fighter sub-type in history.

good over all
By pamason October 26, 2015
This model has much good and little bad. The parts fit well with little sanding but only a base cockpit and no pilot. The inst are good and paint chart is good to the decals are easy to cut out but care in place them. with a little work the landing gear can be showen up ore down. The cockpit glass has only the close setting. But a good plane for all.

P47D Razorback
By joerella10 March 5, 2016
What a great kit. Academy did a fine job with the near perfect fit and the fine recessed panel lines. Yes, the only way to display the canopy is closed. And, the cockpit is just basic. But, those two flaws are easy to overlook. This kit is fine for anyone to build.

Good Fun Kit
By Rmackert59 October 15, 2017
This is the first airplane model I have built in over 40 years. This is a good beginner's kit. All the parts went together with little problem. Very little flash if at all. The canopy did not fit perfectly but it is not apparent unless you look very closely. The decals for this kit were brittle and the checker board decals did not fit worth a flip. Replaced the nose decals with a yellow ring that in the end looks better than the decals if they had fit. In the end I was very pleased with my reintroduction to model planes. Despite the decals I would buy and build another Academy kit.
