Featuring Melissa and the Republic P-47G Thunderbolt WW2 fighter - First flying in 1941, the P-47 was introduced into Army Air Force service in 1942. Serving mostly in the European Theater, the P-47 is one of the biggest (not to mention heaviest!) single engine fighter aircraft ever built! With a full armament, the P-47 could weigh about 8 tons! It was armed with eight .50 cal guns, four on each wing. Topping out at just over 430mph, the P-47 could travel 800 miles in combat mode. It could carry bombs, rockets, or drop tanks for extra fuel. Over 15,600 were built with it finally being retired in 1966 from the Peruvian Air Force.
The Dietz Dolls Aviation Pinup Series features World War 2 aircraft (called Warbirds) paired with a pinup model wearing authentic flight clothing to the 1940s era. Available for purchase in all sorts of different sizes including posters!
