ParkZone’s P47 Thunderbolt, "Snortin' Bull” is based on the personally marked Thunderbolt flown by Captain James A Mullins of the USAAF 404th FG, 507th FS, from RAF Winkton, near Christchurch, Dorset, England, 1944.

Constructed from ParkZone’s unique and highly durable Z foam this striking model features more than enough scale detail to satisfy the most ardent warbird fan.

Features such as a dummy radial engine, .50 calibre machine gun barrels, detailed cockpit area, moulded panel lines and hatches complete with a scale WW2 colour scheme and "Snortin' Bull” decals.
The fuselage is unique in the fact that any build-up of hot air from the motor/speed controller can escape through the scale turbocharger and intercooler doors.

Out of the box the P-47 comes with a fixed landing gear and a steerable tail wheel, however the wings come ready to accept E-flites .15 size electric retracts and these coupled with the option of fully functioning flaps give the pilot a superb warbird experience that’s more normally associated with larger models.

In the air the model looks and flies with a real presence whilst performing all of the typical warbird manoeuvres with ease and thanks to the overall lightness of the model landing approaches and landings are relatively stress free making the Thunderbolt the perfect choice for your next electric warbird model!

Designed by jointly by Russian immigrants Alexander Seversky and Alexander Kartveli to meet a USAAC (United States Army Air Corps) requirement for a heavy fighter, the P-47 built by Republic Aviation was first flown on May 6th, 1941.

Early models featured a “razorback” fuselage design that offered limited visibility for the pilots especially to the rear but this was later rectified with the introduction of the more familiar “bubble top” version.
Right from the start the P47 was a formidable aircraft with superb performance thanks to its double row turbo supercharged Pratt and Whitney 18 cylinder R2800 radial engine. Armament was equally impressive with 8 x .50 calibre machine guns mounted in the wings.

The Thunderbolt not only had the range to escort bombers deep into enemy territory it also proved to be a deadly ground attack aircraft with its ability to carry an amazing array of under-wing mounted bombs, rockets, and bazooka tubes.

Pilots had more than a few misgivings about the abilities of this huge fighter on first sight but these were quickly dispelled once in the air and they came to love the big P-47 “Jug", or “Juggernaut" as it was nicknamed. Thanks to its endurance, rugged build and ability to absorb quite severe damage and still get the pilot home safely, and it was built in greater quantities than any other US fighter with some 15,680 being built.

Although the P-47 was the largest and heaviest single-engine WWII fighter to see combat service, it was also the first piston-powered fighter to exceed 500 mph.
