Here's a look at Platz's very cute little P-47D bubble-top and razorback Thunderbolts.

Nice review Merlin. They seems very well made.
Oh the diorama possiblities are endless. Can't wait to see what some of the P-47 ( dare I say "Bolt" Nuts ) enthusiests come up with with these little gems.

Thanks again

Cheers Paul

Yes, I reckon Nige will pounce on these for his site. I'll try to include them along with my planned quarterscale XP-72 for the Thunderbolt campaign.

All the best

Merlin you could do Zemke's Wolfack for the build. I may have to check a set or 2 out myself

If only we had a UK importer for Platz, I'd have the whole set. P-51's, P-47's, F6F and Fw-190's
