Default RE: Realistic Expectations to build a big P47...

Seanucd2000, You should also look into the Meister Scale P-47! It's bigger than the other mentioned...and bigger is better! But seriously, the Meister warbirds are much easier builds than a Ziroli or a Vaillencourt. You could always have a foam wing cut for it as well if you prefer foam wings. The Meister is hands down the best flying P-47 on the market...granted it is not quite a scale as the smaller kit's, but you can detail it to whatever level you desire. You can buy plans and cut your own wood, buy a short kit, or a full wood kit...it's up to you. You can check it out at http://www.meister-scale.com/index.html
Anyway, it's another alternative for you to consider...my friend and Top Gun competitor (world class pilot) Dean DiGiorgio say's it's the best P-47 he's ever flown! and to me, that alone say's alot, as Dean's flown just about everything there is out there!
Good luck,
Rob / Pickupsticks

PS I have attached a couple of pics of my Meister P-47 razorback
