Hobby Master 1:48 Air Power Series P-47M Thunderbolt 44-21160 "Devastatin Deb", Capt. John C Fahringer 63rd Fighting Squadron, March 1945 1:48 Scale Item: HA8406 Hobby Master "1:48 Air Power Series" diecast airplanes feature: Diecast metal construction with some plastic components. Realistic panel lines, antennas, access panels and surface details. Pad printed markings and placards that won't fade or peel like decals. Opening canopies, revealing detailed cockpit interiors. Interchangeable extended/retracted landing gear. Presentation stand to display the aircraft "in flight". Authentic detachable ordnance loads complete with placards. Accurately detailed underside with concealed screwheads. The P-47M was designed to run down and destroy the German buzz-bombs and the Luftwaffe’s new jets and rocket powered aircraft. To accomplish this a Pratt and Whitney P&W R-2800-57 (C) engine was added as well as a new larger super-charger. The engine also had water injection and all this allowed the P-47M a war-emergency power of 2,800 hp @ 32,500 feet. Air brakes were added to help the aircraft slow during a dive. No under-wing racks were attached because the P-47M was strictly meant to be a fighter. Because of delays the P-47M didn’t reach the ETO until December 1944. During his time with the 63rd Fighter Squadron Capt. John C Fahringer flew two P-47s. Both aircraft wore UN-F and were named “Devastin’ Deb” The first aircraft was a P-47D while the second was a P-47M 44-21160. On March 25 1945 44-21160 was flown by Major George Bostwick, newly assigned to the 63rd FS, when he shot down an Me-262 and damaged another. On April 5, 1945 Captain Fahringer, Operations Officer for the 63rd, scored his fourth and final aircraft when he downed an Me-262 while flying “Devastatin’ Deb”.
