Default RE: TF GS P47 Build - yeah another bloody one!!

This plane is BIG, I finished the top fuse,sheeted, sanded etc and all the stringers on the bottom. Also really beefed up the motor box, firewall and doublers. The difference in size when you add the bottom formers and stringers is quite apparent. Peter- I found the bottom of the fuse also needs additional stringers plus I substituted spruce for three of the balsa ones. Now for the good news! The ZDZ 80 fits perfect!! With the 3 piece motormount that Chief RC has you dont need to cut a big hole in the firewall for the carb and the prop backplate extends 1/2" past the cowl. With a 26" prop it will have that scale "fan" look when that big prop rotates. Tomarrow finish sheeting the fuse.
