P-47D-25 upgrade set

Eduard 1/48 P.E. P-47D-25 upgrade set for Eduard kit




Ordinarily, the USAAF would have given such a radical modification a completely new variant letter.The USAAF chose instead to designate it simply by giving it a new production block number in the D-series. The first batches to feature this new bubble canopy were Farmingdale's P-47D-25-RE and Evansville's P-47D-26-RA. These batches also had the R-2800-59 or -63 engines, the paddle-bladed propeller, and the "universal" wing first introduced on the "razorback" P-47D-20-RE. Stronger belly shackles capable of carrying a 91.6 Imp. gall. drop tank were fitted. This tank, together with the 170.6 Imp. gall. main fuselage tank, an 83-gallon auxiliary fuel tank and two 125-gallon underwing tanks, made it possible to carry a total fuel load of 595 gallons, providing a maximum range of 1800 miles at 10,000 feet.



The kit of Eduard P-47D "Jugs over Germany"  provides enough improve parts but in some areas is not enough, so it comes this upgrade set order to complement these areas.
