    RE: TP Gold Edition P-47 or P-51

    I won't vote, but I'll tell you how I feel about the two.

    The Mustang is the better looking of the two by far (to me anyway), but I have flown them both and the P-47 is the better flier.

    So it's up to you - Looks or performance?

    RE: TP Gold Edition P-47 or P-51

    I am almost finished with the TF p-51.  Mine isnt the giant, its the 1/7th scale.  I am a bit surprised at how heavy it seems to be.  I put a 1.20 4s on the front.  I weighed it with digital scales.  It comes in at almost exactly 10lbs.  Other guys have told me theirs is over 12.  It just feels like a heavy 10 lbs.  We will see very soon how well it flies.

    Don't worry. Warbirds fly better with a little weight behind them. They were never designed to be floaters.

    Damm 70 years to late, I can close my eyes and see the P-57 riding shot-gun with the B-17's. What dreams are made of. Who will be the first to build it.

    RE: TP Gold Edition P-47 or P-51

    I broke down and picked up the P-51 to build this winter. I don't think you can go wrong with either of them. I'm still planning out all the little things that are going in it though.

    RE: TP Gold Edition P-47 or P-51

    I voted for the P-47. As mentioned it is one of the best flying Gold Edition Kits made. I have to admit that I am really leaning toward Mikes new airplane, it's cool. Good Luck, Dave

    So let me see if I have the picture right. The body and wing off the 47 and the tail feathers and bottom air intake of the 51.

    Well this project is dead in the water, no build plans for the 47 or 51 and I looked at a lot of sites.
