Republic P-47M-1 Thunderbolt 421108:HV-Z bar of the 61st Fighter Squadron, 56th Fighter Group 8th Air Force based at RAF Boxted early 1945.
*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.
The plane was flown by Captain Witold Lanowski and its upper surfaces were painted purple-black with Medium Aluminum undersides.
Obs.: This skin is a submission for the Thunderbolt contest: https://forums.eagle.ru/topic/261089-dcs-p-47d-thunderbolt-livery-competition/?do=findComment&comment=4570640
