P-47D Thunderbolt Gold Edition - Giant Scale

P-47D Thunderbolt photo

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, TOPQ8042).

  • Many Top Flite scale options available for increased authenticity, as well as custom-designed Robart retracts.

P-47D Thunderbolt engine
Enjoy exciting, forgiving warbird flight using a wide range of glow or gasoline engines. The P-47D has a slow stall speed, excellent stall resistance and superb handling characteristics throughout the speed range—a great introduction to giant-scale flying!
P-47D Thunderbolt aileron
Each aileron and flap is operated by its own servo for greater control authority—and the security of knowing you have a "back up" if one servo fails. The slotted flaps also help to preserve scale lines by internally concealing their control horns.
