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

Yeah, the little voice is already talking! That pland didn't look THAT big until I looked at your website, and saw the one with the person standing next to it on its nose! Wow! This is so tough. Perhaps I will just order the plans now, and start looking over them. Would it be tough to cut my own parts, or should I not even bother and just get a short kit? I am getting better with my scroll saw. Also, what would I use for landing gear on that? I only have a 6 channel radio as well. I refuse to let this hobby get too complicated! (Of course I say this as I am contemplating getting a 102" plane! Hee hee....

You know what, my old field's website says it has a 400 foot runway, and I think the new club's runway (I just moved a little ways away) is bigger than that one. If that one is 400, there is no way the one here is only 200.

Here is a pic of our runway from the club's website. Perhaps it is big enough to land one of those beasts.

That is going to be a lot of money, but hmmm.....
