Default RE: Meister 1/5 scale P-47

Yes, 102" is the same 1/5 scale we all have. You did well. Ours was $500 with the mains with the scale tires and wheels, retract tail wheel (installed), air system (mostly), a scale cockpit kit, bubble canopy and fiberglass cowl, and all the other molded parts they offer for the build up fuselage. Also got all the plans and two big boxes of cut out parts and wood. As you, building was OK, but some things needed fixed, redone, or scrapped, like the engine mount. We hope to get ours in the air this year yet. It won't be completely detailed, but that can wait till winter. Hope we can share tips here. I see nothing on the plans pertaining to radio component distribution. So I am keeping as much as I can in the wing saddle area so she doesn't get too tail heavy. I would be interested to know how others have approached this and how much if any led ballast was necessary. Build on.
