    Hello Mirce. Good to here from you. No, we have not received the wood package yet. Ours is one of only two of their kind, and Wayne has the other. He is working with the wing parts and as soon as they are verified as correct, ours will be cut and sent out, I was told.

    I have let Dino know to not be pressured on the Zero as we have a CARF Corsair and a Meister P-47 to build in the meantime.
    Cheers,

    RE: Meister 1/5 scale P-47

    Hello again guys. Been awhile since posting to this thread.

    We are busy building, but I am thinking ahead a little here. Before spring, I would like to do an engine change to Zombie. I have a Moki 150 that I would like to fit up to her. Now here is the thing, this will mean a different cowl. I will not be able to use the cowl I have fitted to her now. It has operational cowl flaps, and a one-of-a kind scale dummy R-2800 radial. It has the checkerboard and is nicely weathered. A guy going with one of the schemes with a checkerboard cowl would not need to do much to it other than fit it to your mount. The nose and flaps were covered with aluminum foil for authentic looking paint chipping.

    Any Meister powered with an 80 - 85 CC single cylinder should be able to use this cowl. I would sell it with the servos installed for the cowl flaps.

    She has (2) first place, (2) second place, an award at Monster Planes, is featured on the home page of David Hart, the well known model photographer, and a trip to Top Gun. Zombie has also been pictured in at least (4) domestic and (2) international magazines, along with the current ad running in many magazines for the 2013 Toledo show, that is Zombie with this cowl in the ad. She also has a photo spread on the Meister web site under 'completed aircraft'.

    Any interest? Send me a PM.

    Thanks guys.

    Captain Ron,
    Sorry, not sure what happened.

    I just came up with this idea last evening, because a long lost engine that I had forgotten about, just showed back up on my doorstep, along with a lot of other stuff, a real treasure chest / box. Anyway, I now have a different engine for the Zero, so the Moki can go in the P-47.

    I got a message from a friend right away, and it looks like he can use it. I thought about posting it in the classifieds for $400 OBO, with a credit back of the $65 if a guy had a new one he was willing to exchange. Didn't get that far. I get these ideas and think out loud. Never really sold anything quite like this, so I didn't know quite what to ask. Seams like a lot for a cowl, but I have upwards of $250 in parts and materials and a lot of time into it. I guess I was looking for some feedback, but I hadn't yet put a price on it. Got the cart before the horse, AGAIN.


    Gary

    PS Buy the way, in the pictures you see a missing cylinder at the bottom so the engine gets the cooling air it needs. I made another cylinder and snaps in place with Velcro for static display. I just pop it back out to fly. Worked great.

    RE: Meister 1/5 scale P-47

    Hello guys. We will be cranking up this thread again very soon. Zombie will be getting some refitting. The cowl will be remodeled with cowl flaps that are attached to the fuselage and operational as before. Without the cowl flaps, the cowl will be easy to remove over the new Moki 150. I'm planning on developing the scale exhaust as well, and adding it to our line. We will be adding a Smart Fly Equalizer II to the tail gear. Also I sent the mains back to Down & Locked for an upgrade to the new more powerful motors Mitch is using as of March of this year. Picked them up at the Toledo show this past week end. You can't tell be looking, as the new motor fits in the old housing. Guess it is MUCH more powerful, and just a bit faster.

    In addition to the work on Zombie, we will be building a new P-47 with the fiberglass Fuselage. Looking forward to this as well.
    Cheers,

    RE: Meister 1/5 scale P-47

    Zombie at Top Gun last year.

    She is in the shop for the engine refit. I have the new Moki ignition on the way, and I will also be installing the fuel pump for the Moki 150. I have looked at the cowl flap system, and I think the mod will be fairly straight forward. Attaching them to the fuselage like I did to the Corsair is the way to go.

    RE: Meister 1/5 scale P-47

    A new build is under way.

    Pictures will soon be posted.

    This will be a fiberglass version, equipped with Sierra gear (converted), Dino's landing light, our light system for the other nav and formation lights, a DA under the hood, operational cowl flaps (attached to the fuselage, not the cowl, just like I did on the Corsair), and some improvements in the wing, like foaming the cells.

    Also coming soon to a thread near you, the engine swap for Zombie from the 3W 80 to the Moki 150, also with a new cowl built with the separate operational cowl flaps attached to the fuselage, where they belong.

    WOW!! Zombie now has 7 flights on her since the conversion and she is a new airplane. She has been clocked at 100 MPH and I wasn't trying nor knew she was being clocked. I know she will go faster. I'm thinking she is a good 15 MPH faster now, and also a considerable increase in pulling power as in over the top of loops. In the process, I moved the CG back about 1/2 " and she now can be flown much slower, also made possible by the low idle of the Moki. I need to get more pictures of the completed cowl, but here are some before I got the checkerboard done.

    Also I'd like to report that the upgrade Mitch at Down & Locked did on our gear has worked perfectly. We were having some issues with the gear not retracting all the way some times. Mitch rebuilt our gear with new more powerful motors, and now they always retract all the way. The CJ gear lacks the mechanical advantage the Sierra gear has, so it benefits greatly from the more powerful motors. They fit in the same housing as the old ones.

    Hi, I'm going to build a Meister P-47 this winter. Planning on using a Moki 180 radial. What did you use for the exhaust tube, i.e. the orange hose? And did you build your wing as a two piece?

    The flex hose is something we use for our scale F4U Moki exhaust. You can contact Dan at Custompipesrc@hotmail.com to buy it from us by the foot the foot.

    Zombie is around 50lbs (as you may have seen from looking through the thread, Zombie is all wood) and the Moki 150 flies the wings off her. I have a 26 X 16 prop on it, and the new Moki ignition with an electric fuel pump.The 150 leaves a lot of room in the cowl, and looks much like a 2800 in the there, as far as diameter is concerned. I think it gets faster every time out, as this engine breaks in. She surely doesn't need the 180, but if you already have one, I may try and squeeze it in there also. Many of these are flown with DA 85s. And they do quite well. The sound of the Moki is mesmerizing though.

    Yes, the wing is a two piece. We add plywood to the center ribs for this reason. One bolt, threaded into a blind nut in the right wing, holds the two halves together as we assemble the wing to the fuselage.
