Tamiya 1/ 48 P-47M Thunderbolt
Republic P-47M Thunderbolt
The Fastest Piston-Engined Fighter of WWII
This late-production variant of the already battle-proven P-47 Thunderbolt entered service in January 1945.
Equipped with the massive Pratt & Whitney R-2800-57 radial engine with 2,800 horsepower, the P-47M's 756km/h top speed made it capable of chasing even the Luftwaffe's vaunted Me-262.
