 P-47D Thunderbolt, 226641, Col. Dave Schilling, CO 56th FG, Boxted, December 1944
Aviation Archive. Nicely painted model, with good fit and finish. However, it makes one wonder why Corgi chose this particular paint scheme for their first Thunderbold. Anyway, a real problem with this particular edition was an inadequate stand that allowed the model to fall, nose first, off. I made a temporary fix, and with the third version of the model, Corgi introduced a stronger stand (which didn't fit the plastic vacuum rap and had to be slipped under the rap in the factory).
