So successful has been Seagull’s 63” P-47 Razorback, it seemed almost rude not to offer the model in a larger scale for those who like their warbirds powerful and imposing. This, then, is the result and what a gem it is. Modelled on 275719 (No.44) Piloted by LT James C. Hare (Jim ‘Wabbit’ Hare to his pals) of the 65th Fighter Group, Corsica, 1944, this is a striking example of Republic’s heavyweight fighter which, of course, was well respected for its mastery in both bomber escort and ground attack roles.
A close look at this new 80” span, 38cc eye-catcher will tell you all you need to know about Seagull’s commitment to quality and accuracy. Sporting perfect lines, an authentic matt-finish colour scheme and more scale detail than you can comfortably shake a stick at – not to mention a fully furnished cockpit – this is a model that will draw a crowd wherever it goes. But that’s just the half of it; good, stable, gun platform flying characteristics, Seagull’s renowned build quality and the convenience of a large top deck access hatch make it a must-have model for fighter fans with a spare 38 to 50cc engine kicking around.
