Academy 1/72 P-47D "Eileen" Kit ACA-12474

The Thunderbolt acquitted itself well with its sturdy construction, heavy armament, and big robust radial engine proved ideally suited to this most dangerous of missions, bringing home many a pilot after absorbing battle damage that would have downed most other fighters.
