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

WHOAH! That one is huge! I only have a two car garage to store that beast! I would LOVE to have one that size, but how big of a runway do you need? My field has a nice long paved one that could easily support a big 40% aerobatic plane (and they fly regularly there), but how much of a runway do you need for a warbird that size? I would be afraid it wouldn't be long enough. We do have tons of open space, so that is no problem though. Would a G62 fly one that size, or do you need something bigger, like an 80 or 100?

I could easily just get the 1/7 Top Flite P47 Kit for $149, but want something that I will be more proud of than one of those
