This is a customer build based on a set of Nick Ziroli Giant Scale Plans for 1/5 P-47 Thunderbolt 92″ and a Belair laser cut kit.

Specifications – 1/5th scale with 92 inch wingspan and 79 inch length. With a total wing area of 1500 sq inches, the model weighs 35 lbs and is designed for 3.7 cu in petrol (62cc) engines.

Here are some pictures of the main fuselage, the bottom half is already glass clothed.

  1. I have a quarter scale Percival Mew Gull. It is 25 yrs old and I have recently come back to aero modelling. I was never happy with the spats and undercarriage appearance. I have seen your advert re oleo legs and wonder if you can construct something suitable. The Gull is in store at the moment as I am sure that you would need to know its weight if you can proceed. I have found a USA firm who can possibl replicate the f/glass spats .

    Love the P47!!
