I got two fuel tanks, two bombs and two nacelles (wing bomb/tank brackets) from horizon hobby, they are accessories (1 kit) for hangar 9's discontinued 60 size P-47. I got them about 6 months ago for about $35. I haven't checked lately to see if they are still available.

thx for the comment

thanks Tom! It was a lot of work,but enjoyed doing it. Getting the tail wheel doors to work was a challenge. I used two minature servos so that i could get the doors to close/open evenly. I tried to attach linkages to the retract mechanism, but could not figure out the geometry. Hopefully, I won't be too tail heavy!

I learned a lot, so when (if...Ha) I get to my scratch build Brian Taylor BF-109E, I'll do better on the gaps, hinges, etc.

thanks again
