Default Meister 1/5 scale P-47

An old project with new life. Started years ago by another builder, he lost interest when his building buddies passed away. My brother and I have taken over with a fuselage crutch built and partially sheeted. Only the tail wheel was installed but it needed to be reworked. One wing was partially framed up, but it also needed work in the gear area. She is now coming along nicely. Both wings are built and 90% sheeted. Tail feathers are built complete. Fuselage now has an engine mount for the 3W 80, and most of the mechanical s are installed including the air system, all control servos except the one for the canopy, fuel system, and supporting structures. I'm going to use the scale hatch on the starboard side just below the canopy to hide the switches, air valve, pressure gauge, and charging jacks. The switch and charge jack for the engine will be up front behind another scale inspection panel. We plane to use Flight Metal for the aluminum finish.
