    Hello,

    I saw a pic on this book http://www.aerotechmodels.com/sqsigp47pacific.jpg
    of a P-47D Thunderbolt with Chinese markings, on the pic is possible to see, that the USAAF Markings was painted with Olive Drab and the Chinese Markings are painted over there !!! :shock:

    I´m looking for more pics and informations about the P-47D with Chinese markings/Air Force.

    I saw this and think what amazing !!! So different :D I´m thinking I built some P-47 model with this markings...

    Thanks for all help !

    Lucas

    Hmmm. Very impressive. The US gave P-47's to half the free world after
    WW-II. Lots of countries had them.

    And some Chinese Ponies... some, or all of these may have been from the CACW, but I'm not sure.
