Default P 47

48th scale P 47 D, from the 8th airforces air sea rescue squadron, bulged out special canopy for searching the sea, carried flare drops and pods for dropping dingies and supplies to ditched aircrews at sea. joint RAF and US Army aircore missions, this plane was a dedicated SAR bird. I didnt have the yellow letter decals for the "WW" that is supposed to be under the yellow band on the vertical stab, the "WW" stood for "war weary", as the P 47s issued to the SAR squadron were high hour airframes no longer good for combat.

Default Re: P 47

Always liked the "WW" birds, often used as 'airfield hacks' and such. I hadn't even heard of a P47 in this role though?

See, that's why I'm always eager for your next posting- I either see a kit for the first time, or at least a color scheme- and usually learn something in the process!

You're a "public service", that's what you are!

Dude,
I am a fan of the odd and obscure which you present- BUT, something tells me you'd be doing all of this with or without me egging you on?



Keep it up buddy!
"Your number one fan!"

BTW: You saying the reference book was English perhaps? Silly brits always have to add a non needed vowel to COLOR?

LOL
