Giant "Jug" - with big advantages for builders!

P-47D Thunderbolt flying field photoTo pilots of small, streamlined fighters, the P-47D Thunderbolt looked much too massive for combat success. But "The Jug" proved them wrong - and also ranks as one of the safest single-seat fighters of WWII. This wood kit is modeled after the 366th Fighter Squadron's P47D-30-RA. Uniquely builder-friendly engineering and stable, forgiving flight characteristics make it a fine first (or next) giant scale project!
  • Precisely interlocking, CAD-engineered wood parts and vacuum-formed ABS plastic details simplify giant-scale assembly.
  • Elliptical wing planform with special S8036 and S8037 airfoils produce excellent flight performance using glow or gasoline engines.
  • Fully balsa-sheeted exterior provides an ideal surface for scale finishing - wide stance landing gear allows easy ground handling.
  • Kit also contains instructions and most parts for optional P-47D Razorback construction (except greenhouse canopy, available separately, F-TOPQ8042).
  • Many Top Flite scale options available for increased authenticity, as well as custom-designed Robart retracts.
