"Snafu / War Eagle" was flown in the 83rd FS, 78th FG. by Lt. Severino B. Calderon during late 1944. It has now since been restored and is part of The Fighter Collection at Duxford Aerodrome.
This livery was originally for the P-47G Razorback, but I liked it that much I thought I'd give it a go for the "D" model. Enjoy!

Thank you to keefyboy for his excellent roughmet textures!

*UPDATE: 28/02/2021*. After long research, I've found some very fascinating comments over the internet from Witold Lanowski's son about his father's Thunderbolt so I could adjust a lot of things that were incorrect on my skin. The most important thing added to the model was the lucky horseshoe Lanowski had fixed to the fuselage close to his canopy. It was a real horseshoe, so I've added it to the normal map to give it some depth.
