Fresh off the bench Razorback finish in the marking of the 318th Fg out of Saipan . The 318th Thunderbolts was loaded on Jeep Carriers at Bellows fields then launched from the carrier once it arrived at Saipain where then did a mission once launced from the Carrier then several more from the land base. My great friend whom sadley passed away Norris Graser of Thundercals made the beautiful sheet. So after watching the Wings program on the P-47 several times and seeing P-47's launch from Jeep Carries i had to do one , Eventually i will add a center ling drop tank and pilot . I dedicate this build to my good friend Norris .

Great, neat model. Congrats!

By the way: If I were to make a 318 FG razorback model, analyzing photos I would have a problem with the quick identification color - yellow or rather white?...
My friend whom did the decals is very
Knowledgeable with Thunderbolt and did tons of research . If you look close you can see the bands on the nose and tail look darker then the white on the insignia
