MPM Republic XP-47H Super Thunderbolt, 1/72, 72017

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Rare and still the only injection molded kit ever made of this aircraft in 1/72 scale. Features fine, recessed panel line detail. Never started. Factory sealed bag complete with decals and instructions. This is the 16-cylinder, 490 mph Super Thunderbolt. This radical craft was designed to test the Chrysler XIV-2220-1 liquid-cooled inverted 'V-16' engine. Two P-47D airframes were set aside for modification by Republic at Evansville under subcontract to Chrysler. The airframe was redesigned from the firewall forward and under the belly from the nose to the radiator to a point aft of the rear gas tank. A GE CH5 Turbo Supercharger was installed in the lower rear fuselage. Final drive was through a 14 foot diameter Curtiss propeller. Many problems were encountered with the engine, so the aircraft did not fly till after the war in Europe on July 26th, 1945. Twenty-seven test flights were made including one at 30,000 ft that reached 490 mph.
