Corgi Republic P-47G Thunderbolt "Snafu" 78th FG Duxford 2012 1/72 scale diecast metal and plastic parts. Limited to 1200 pieces world wide. AA33825
Unveiled in 2011 and scheduled to fly for the first time in 2012 P-47G ‘SNAFU’ is set to become the UK’s only airworthy P47, and one of the very few early ‘Razorback’ P47s flying anywhere in the world. Built not by Republic but by Curtiss, hence the ‘G’ rather than ‘D’ designation, this aircraft flew with a number of training squadrons across the United States before being struck off from the USAAF’s inventory in June 1945. Post war it flew as a warbird in the United States before arriving at The Fighter Collection for a fresh restoration to airworthy status. This aircraft is painted in the famous colours of ‘SNAFU’, a 78th Fighter Group aircraft based at Duxford in 1944 and the aircraft features the distinctive chequer board cowling used by the 78th. The original SNAFU was written off after a wheels-up landing in December 1944.
