Republic P-47 D-30 Thunderbolt 1:32 scale Trumpeter
“One of the most unusual victory claims of any P-47 pilot was made by Colonel Joseph L Laughlin of the 379th FS, 362nd FG, when flew ‘Five by five’ from Etain, France, in March 1945. During an attack on Brest harbour in 1944 he evidently managed to bomb a light cruiser and was credited with sinking it – although the precise circumtances of this event are unclear. Overall, Laughlin flew 100 combat sorties and achieved three victotries in air combat plus the cruiser.”
