I am in the planning stages of a Giant Scale P-47 Razorback build in either 1:5 or 1:6 scale. I want to reproduce a Tuskeegee Airmen's ''Red Tail''as a tribute to their achievements and plan to use a G.I. Joe for the pilot.
I have put together a preliminary package and would appreciate any feedback. They include the following:
(1) Top Flite GS P-47 kit
(2) A ZDZ 80 or Saito FG57T engine
(3) Airtronics SD-10G radio w/ three Airtronics 94746 servos & seven 94755's.
(4) Robart Retracts 622-P47 for the front & either Robart's 160LWC or Century Jet's retracts for the tail.
This will be my first GS build and I want to build from a kit not plans so chose the TF GS kit. If there is a better choice in terms of ease of build, scale and flying I am open to suggestions. Engine, radio & retracts choice are also flexible as I presume it depends on which kit I finally choose.
Thanks for any assistance you may provide!!!
