Though it may not have been considered “sleek”, the P-47D Thunderbolt was nonetheless a durable, dependable fighter during WWII, with a reputation for returning pilots home alive. Top Flite has brought this nostalgic aircraft back to life with an authentic 1/8 sport scale version of the “Bonnie” P-47D-23 Razorback. As with all Top Flite Warbirds, careful attention to detail is evident throughout, and Gold Edition kit engineering means any intermediate-level modeler will enjoy building and flying this faithful reproduction of a vintage warrior.

  • The airfoils used on the P-47D Thunderbolt were developed by Dr. Michael Selig of the Low Speed Airfoil Test Program at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. They provide stable, more forgiving R/C warbird flight.
  • Optional D-25 Bubble Canopy Conversion Package (LXHV04) includes all parts needed to convert the P-47 into a bubble canopy fighter, plus “skull and crossbones” markings.
