P-47D-25 gun bay

Eduard 1/48 P.E. P-47D-25 gun bay 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 for gun bays order to complement these areas in two photo-etch frets with more than 100 pieces for both wings gun bays.


The first fret contains 46 parts for weapons and ammo stations in one piece, some parts for the slip ways of ammunition strips, the supports for the four Browning M2 machine guns, and the covers for ammo stations.


The second fret contains 61 parts for ammunition. the covers for the four Browning M2 machine guns, and the interior side of covers for ammo stations.
