Tamiya P-47D Bubbletop Thunderbolt in 1/72 Scale

This is Tamiya’s excellent P-47D Bubbletop kit with Eagle Strike 72055 decals.  Completely out of the box, it was an easy build and was painted with Alclad Aluminum.  “Shirley Jane III” was the mount of Capt. Edward O. Fisher, 377 FS, 362 FG.   The aircraft was based at Rennes, France in August 1944 (not my local park).
