Spotlight Review

Remington1858 (Colorado)
so enjoyed doing this build. everything fit together so very well. did have a little issue with canopy. loved the rocket tubes and the bombs to make this into a flying tank. First tamiya kit ive done and am now looking at all their offerings. I took coloring liberty's with this. did a cammo in sky blue and navy blue. with dull grey under belly. looks unique. Im not into creating exact copies and being more creative with this aspect of the build. in fact i just did an all pink P51D for my wifes office. highly recommended kit doubt.

"Fun Build"
This was a fun build typical of a Tamiya kit. If you are thinking about buying this kit, quit thinking and just buy it, you won't regret it and you'll have a great time with it. No putty required is a big winner in my book. Now on to the Buffalo on deck.

"Very Good P-47 Kit"
This is an excellent kit of the P-47. The parts of the kit fit together very snugly and the instructions are very detailed. The only downsides I've noticed are, the parts can be fiddly but otherwise, the kit is excellent and well made. This makes into an excellent model of the P-47 Thunderbolt.

"Excellent model of tough American fighter"

The P-47D Razorback is another outstanding kit from Tamiya. Quality of parts and fit are excellent, with no trouble spots encountered throughout the build. Tamiya's superb engineering really shines in this kit. The cockpit is well detailed and you get a nice pilot figure to go in it. Decal options for two planes are included, although I made some custom decals to model the plane flown by the father (Capt. Airus Bergstom) of a friend. You can load the plane up as a ground attack fighter, or as a long range bomber escort. You also get options for flaps up or down, side vents open or closed, canopy open or closed and several types of propellers. Clear parts for wingtip lights, armored window up front and gunsight are included. Two types of wheel hubs, as well as two types of external fuel tanks are provided. All panel lines are nicely and evenly inscribed and look really good under a coat of paint. Instruction manual is clear and confusion free and gives excellent painting and decal guidance. Overall, a great kit that was super fun to build and paint.


In 1943, the 8th Air Force was launching raids on Germany with its B17 and B24 from England. The aim was to destroy German main production factories. Unfortunately, losses during theses missions were very heavy and it became urgent to develop a fighter able to escort the bombers over enemy soil. The limited ranges of the Spitfire and P-38 Lightning did not make these fighters able to go further than Paris, leaving the bombers alone to fend for themselves for the rest of the flight. With the development of the P-47, this problem was overcome. The P-47 was the first single-seated fighter to be equipped with a supercharger, allowing it to fly at the same high altitude as the bombers. This high-flying fighter was armed with eight 12.7mm machineguns that proved very useful in the intense fighting that occurred in the European skies. Equipped with drop tanks for longer range, the P-47D was then able to escort the bombers all the way to the German border. The Thunderbolt also allowed many Allied pilots to become Aces. Bomber crews plagued day after day by intensive German interceptions, would remark that the presence of the P-47 was of great help.


  • Decal options:
  • 1: Lt. Frank Klibbe, 56th FG, 61st FS, Halesworth, UK, March 1944.
  • 2: Capt. Walker Mahurin, 56th FG, 63rd FS, Halesworth, UK, March 1944.
