The P-47 Thunderbolt was produced in greater numbers than any other US fighter, although arguably it was in the fighter/bomber role that the "Jug" really made it's name and was one of the best Ground Attack Aircraft of WW2, paving the way for the modern concept of multi-role capability aircraft.
This is one big Thunderbolt! Designed as a semi-scale Sports model, it offers all the advantages of a good sport flyer combined with a Warbird look for the best of both worlds. Nothing flies like a big warbird and there is no doubt, this model looks fantastic in the air, engine growling as it strafes the landing strip! For the scale warbird enthusiasts there is plenty of scope for "scaling up" but it flies so well, it won't be a Hanger Queen that can only be flown when conditions are just so.
The paint & covering finish is quite superb, a comprehensive hardware kit is included and fixed under-carriage is also included, the model is also retract ready for those not wanting dangly leg's ruining the look! There is a huge amount of room in the fuselage for RC gear and a wide range of both glow and Gas engines to choose from, one thing is for sure, it won't be an expensive build for a model of this size and class. With Flaps to keep landing speed low, low flying weight and a wing designed to prevent nasty warbird like tip-stalling, this is a great choice for a practical, every day sport flier with some charisma.

Bought this a while ago for $150.00 I have been recovering from some issues with my heart but I couldn't pass on this aircraft now I just checked the aircraft out in my recovery center room pic attached nice bird for the bucks spent some issues but nothing that will keep this from moving forward. damage on the rudder feathers ,wrinkles on the covering but I am very happy with it overall.Ok I hate when people complain about the instructions. But the instructions are no help(build the wing install the engine) lol. no instructions on where to bolt the engine I did it centerd right to left and then from center of the crank to the top of the cowl same as crank to the sides. I did not beef up the gear mounts and it is holding up well. all the hardware is good I did add a joiner wire between the elevators I don't like Y connectors on elevators. build was easy and fast. power is from a bx1 1.08 2 stroke mg heavy duty on elevator and rudder standerd on ailerons. First flight nice long rollout easy takeoff cog is perfect as per the instructions took me a lot of lead to get it there. 2 clicks of trim and she flew nice and well behaved tracking is rock steady. in a stall she just drops her noes and stays level. this plane is clean fast a joy to fly no bad habbits in the air landing gear is crazy wide so landing is cake. flaps work well need a bunch of down elevater mixing but stays stable. Overall I love this plane fun build fun to fly looks nice and it is fast. fiberglass is thin in non critical areas some cosmetic flaws. After fliying it I no it can easily handle a 180fs or 30cc gas.The kit was in dbl box all parts bagged and taped down well. No damage in shipping. The fiberglass is thin in non critical areas so you can't man handle it like some other fiberglass kits. Some paint bleeding on cowl and panel lines and the fuse does not have perfect lines. Due to those to things i'd say this is not the plane to try to all out mod and make a super scale p-47. However I wanted a good looking large warbird to put a big engine on and go fast at a good price! And this plane is perfect for what I want it for. It is good looking nicely built I would buy it again now that I have seen it up close. I will post a build review and flight review once it is in the air.Sehr schnes Kit! Man sollte nur die spannten und die klebestellen GFK/Holz kontrollieren und am besten mit einer lage GFK verstrken. Die Landeklappen werden ber umlenkgestnge vom rumpf aus angelenkt, also keine seperaten Landeklappen Servos in den Flchen, sondern nur eins im Rumpf. Ich finde die Lsung garnicht verkehrt, aber wer mchte kann auch zwei servos von oben in die flchen setzen, was aber zustzliches gewicht bedeutet.
Leider fehlt die bauanleitung, aber eigentlich ist alles sehr eindeutig. Ich werde baustufenfotos, und nach dem erstflug auch den CG hier nachtragen. Fr gewhnlich liegt der aber im bereich der hauptsteckung.
