This model depicts a 9th Air Force P47 of the 57FG/ 66FS in early September of 1944. This is how the  aircraft appeared on one of it's first missions flying from Corsica to Italy.

The model was built out of the box using Model Master Paints and home made decals.  The aluminum finish is done with Rub & Buff.

The aircraft paint scheme was taken from original color pictures. The armor plate and the deck behind the pilot were subsequently painted black to cut down the glare.
