P-47D restoration

I thought all of you Jug fans (and you know who you are!) would find this photo collection of interest; it shows the current status of the P-47D razorback that the Dakota Air Museum is restoring to flight. IIRC, it is an actual Republic-built P-47D, not a Curtiss-built P-47G, as are the other flyable razorback Jug survivors. Note that it will have a functioning turbosupercharger, which is very rare among all the flyable P-47's. The quality of the restoration looks to be top notch- can't wait to see her fly again!

Amazing level of restoration that's being undertaken which makes me wonder how on earth they managed to build these things in volume during WW2!
