Hi

I've been trying to get this kit for a while and haven't seen any on ebay for weeks. I can't see it in Hannants either or any local model shops. Does anyone know where I can get this in the UK? Any online places that do mail order would be ideal.

thanks
Mike

Hi Michael.
Your two best ways of getting hold of this kit are probably either through traders at model shows or Ebay.
Either course of action will probably lead to you buying more kits than you intended before the little Revell M comes along
Hope this helps,
Nige

I use lots of different searches when looking for P-47's on ebay

P47
P-47
P-47C
P-47D
P-47M
P-47N
Razorback
Bubbletop
Jug

Find if I go through that list I don't usually miss anything, people don't always type an accurate description!!

If I know what particular kit I'm after I usually just search by maufacturer and scale.
