Lego P-47D Thunderbolt

Time for a brief trip outside the world of cars with Henrik Jensen’s superb P-47D Thunderbolt. Used throughout the Second World War and the Pacific, the P-47 was the heaviest fighter ever built to be powered by a single piston engine, the huge turbocharged Pratt & Whitney R-2800. This gave the Thunderbolt a massive payload capacity; on short flights it could carry more than half the payload of a dedicated B-17 bomber.
