My uncle, Lieutenant Daniel Nazzarett, was a member of the 361st Fighter Group. He was killed in action in February, 1944 flying a P-47D-15-RE. I have wanted to get models of his plane built, but I cannot find his AC code. It is not in the MACR. I have checked other sources, including the two rolls (4,000 frames) of microfilm sent to me by the Maxwell Air Force base, but I have not been able to find my uncle’s AC code.
I’ve been advised that there is a good chance that the AC code of my uncle’s Thunderbolt was E9-N, and I am inclined to have the models made with that AC code unless I find out that E9-N was used by someone else. Does anyone know if Lt. Naedele, Lt. Norman or anyone else had the E9-N AC code, or if there is any other reason not to use E9-N on models of my uncle’s plane? If I should not use E9-N, would anybody have a suggestion as to what I should use?
