Notes from our tech department:
This is a 1/48 Scale P-47D-25 Thunderbolt Plastic Model Kit from Hasegawa.
Suitable for Ages 12 & Up.

The Republic P-47 Thunderbolt was the largest and heaviest
single engine fighter to see service in WWII. In the early stages of the
USAAF's campaign against "Fortress Europe" the P-47 was the only fighter
able to provide the bombers with an escort until the ultimate escort, the
P-51 B & D Mustangs entered service. However, far from making them obsolete
it freed the P-47s to attack ground targets in which role they excelled.
