    I am interested in building RCAF aircraft that operated or were trialled in Canada during WW ll. So far I have no info on P47s,but there must have been at least one. Any info on Model number, markings,colors would be appreciated.
    Thank you

    I honestly do not think the RCAF ever had any P-47s. There may have been a few Canadian pilots who flew them with the RAF in the Pacific, but beyond that, I don't think you'll have much luck.

    Catch 22 is correct IMHO :). RAF used them in latter years in Burma/India campaign. If you want a RCAF connection you best find a Canadian pilot who flew in that theater.
