Default RE: For those who love World War Two Fighters

Hi Phil G. That P-47 is an Aerotech kit, and is made of molded carbon fiber. All the rivets and panel lines are molded in, and it is extremely accurate. Although expensive, it makes for a museum-quality replica when it's finished. The last picture I uploaded was taken at Boxted, Essex, last August. We flew it at the airshow there. I'm working on another model from Aerotech now, which will be an M model, painted in the colors of Russ Kyler's Lorene. He's still around and we are planning on flying it this summer at an airshow with him in attendance. The model will have openable gun bays showing the ammo trays and 50 cal machine guns, working cowl flaps and other stuff, too. Cheers, DaveGee
