Looking for information on a Jug I picked up in trade. I have a P-47 that I acquired from a friend it is about 69.5" WS with a fiberglass fuse. I have no idea (and can no identifying marks on the plane) who manufactured it. Any help you can give me would be great. The planes can be seen on my Flickr sitehttps://www.flickr.com/photos/pekinr...57647693320130 /I do have a couple guesses on the P-47 possible one of these two.

Or

Any help you can give me would be great.
Thanks

Looks really nice Ed. The one I built was right around 17-17.5 pounds which seems to be about the norm. They fly great at that weight although I am a firm believer that it would not be too difficult to remove a pound or two from the design without working too hard. I think Mr. Ziroli was still stuck in the giant scale mind set when he designed this smaller model as it seems to be a lot more, shall we say "robust", then is really necessary.

Hound Dog,

Tom went to EAA and I had to work..........................As far as Tom's (least favorite jet guy) that would be a reason for Tom not to be there!

Old message and probably OBE, but the difference is in where you measure. The ARF measures 6 3/8 back along the edge of the fuselage. The kit measures 5 1/4 back at rib #5. They're both at the same place.

Hi Gary,
On page 54 of this thread you posted a pick of your Moki 150 with a prop hub nut that has a small extention on it. Did you have that made or did you purchase it from a vendor? By the way, I have fitted a Moki 180 in my Byron/Iron Bay T-28 Trojan.
Thanks
Craig

Been planning a build of the T/F G/S P-47 for a while now, and have a question about the flaps.
Has anyone been able to use the Robart Fowler flap hinges in this model? Does it require major mods, or will they even work?
I have a set I have been hoarding for a long time, and it's time to find a good home for them.

Howdy, completed the maiden on my T-F 20cc powered Razor Back. I love this plane, totally hooked on warbirds now.
I now have GS Spitfire and Sis-T FW-190 in the works.

Hi TLH101 : aka Terry

When I built mine I don't remember them being available, but with proper pre planning I do think they would work, that said I would look into some type of liner actuator, I don't think a rotary servo even with a long arm would work.

But that is just me.

Cheers Bob T
