Hi Everyone!

Welcome to the SOSIG P-47!

I'd like to thank everyone that has or is joining us on this endeavor, and would like to give Michael a special thanks for all his help in making this campaign a reality. Also, I'd like to thank all and any Aeroscale modelers that join in helping to save this Special Interest Group.

A note of clarification, due to not knowing how this would lay out, I put a rule of "Not less than 2 pictures in the P-47 Heaven, P-47 Modeling section". Since the tread for this campaign is in the P-47 modeling section, it makes this rule moot. So, post pics as normal in a campaign.

Have fun and help this site out!

Thank you,

Enlisted, looking forward to this one! I might even see if I can rattle his cage and drag Lampie out of retirement!

Tamiya 1/48 Razorback will be my build, with some 56th FG after market decals yet to be decided.

And for good measure, my favourite P-47 images

Cheers, D

Damian, love the photos and posters. They pushed me into testing out one of the Hasegawa kits (P-47D THUNDERBOLT SPECIAL MARKINGS) to see what all of the talk was about re: how easy the construction would be.

Cannot wait for the campaign to begin.
