Default Ziroli 92" P47 budget build

Hi Guys,

Started this a few weeks ago, doing this on a budget, been sitting on a pile of wood for years, so seeing how far i can go before i have to buy any!

Let me know if anyone has done any mods to the airframe as info will be good.

Dave.

All of Nick Ziroli's plans are tried and true, no need for mods, just build it in accordance with the plans and you will have a fantastic flying aircraft.

I haven't done the Ziroli P-47, but it looks like you have a good start. I like to use Gorilla glue and stretch wrap for the sheeting, where possible.

Where did you get those wonderful pins? Looks like they would be very easy on the fingers.

Horizon or Tower has them. I have them and they are very sharp and easy on my fingers.

Thank you,

Ive built and flow Nicks Bearcat and Hellcat, both flew well with hardly any deviation from the plans, i will do the same with this P47, BTW i cant remember where the pins came from, had them for years! they are very good, only complaint is sometimes they glue themselves to the airframe and the top bit you hold turns but the pin dosent, so ive cynoed my ones together!

Keep up with the comments, i will carry on with progress photos!
Dave.

Dave,

Ive just started finishing my Ziroli P47 92". Its been a good straight forward build. I am now at the finishing stages and like you, not sure of a scheme. I definitley want a overall ali look, but not sure which one..

Enjoy the build.

Frank.

Hi guys,

Bit more of an update, got most of the rough sanding done now, need to finish the recessed section behind the pilot and cut out where the cockpit goes.

Hi Graham,

Well i need to decide on a scheme as yet, but edging towards 'Miss Behave'? that is the generals scheme im looking for, just not decided on the nose art/name??

Well would be good for us to fly together this year, you just need to finish one of your own and stop doing other peoples!!!! LOL

Hi Dave,

I went with the plans apart from the retract mounts which were tailor made to suit the Sierra gear
Im unsure what to put under the hood though, are you giong with the z62 as shown?? My idea is to wait and complete the model, add all the gear and do a weight check. If its about the 25lb mark without the motor I will probably go for the 62, much above that I will have a re-think, probably along the lines of a zdz 80 or such like.

I built a Ziroli Dauntless last year, sticking exactly to the plans and its the best flying model I own. The only modification I made to that was to reduce the engine mount to allow for the Zenoah 80. Again the plan shows a z62, wouldnt fancy that at 42lbs!!! There is a vid on youtube.

Where are you on wood? Bought any yet? You'll be surprised how far you can go out of the scrap bin.

LOL very true!...well i bought a load of wood from a guy who was building planes from plans for years when he retired, the fuz is now mainly done apart from some small peices, so far ive spent £8.65p on liteply and some hardwood!!! but some of that will be used on the wing ribs,.....like i said this is going to be a budget build, even the gear and engine will be bought on a budget, but more of that later!!

Dave.

Hi Frank! [sheriff!!!]

Yes it's worth all the faffing but the end result is the nuts,here is a shot of the Cat I did for Scott.
Engine choice has got to be the Zenoah 80 or 75,thats what I ended up in my old Ziroli Bolt.

Cheers GB

Hi guys,

Bit more of an update, got most of the rough sanding done now, need to finish the recessed section behind the pilot and cut out where the cockpit goes.

Dave

hi

andy
I use the brown foaming one. It expands and fills any voids. Sands almost like balsa.
