Default Nosen P-47 Build Marathon

This is the beginning of a marathon build. I have started a Bud Nosen P-47 kit. It will have a Q-100, Annco retracts and wheels and fiberglass cowl. It will probably get a Meister razor back and canopy. Also will most likely have a retractable tail wheel. The progress so far is pretty straight forward. The first changes to be made will involve modifying the formers to accept an engine mount box that will extend back to the wing. Comments and suggestions will be appreciated ( as long as you are nice)
Thanks

The Annco gear looks very good. It positive locks both up and down. I do not know where this cowl comes from, but I have read several other posts that say the Meister cowl should work.

Here is the cowl in position before mounting it. There is a cowl ring that glues to the inside of the cowl. Then there are 1/2" dia x 2" long dowels that go from the fire wall to the cowl ring.

These pics show the cowl after the initial mounting. I will be adding more braces between the cowl and cowl ring later.

This is the horizontal stab tacked together. I still need to glue in hinge points. Then sand the leading and trailing edge to shape.

Looking ahead, here is a pic of the wing ribs. There is also a pic of the wing plan. I will be doubling the supplied balsa ribs with 1/8" ply in the areas marked in red. These ribs will be cut out to accept the retracts and wheels. Does anyone have any suggestions for getting the gear to line up so the wheels point straight ahead?

Lookin good! They really are a sweet flyer in the end. I had one that I just really didn't have the moolah to power correctly, but it was super stable and flew very very nicely. First flew it on an Inline Twin SuperTigre... then on a G-62. It should fly like a warbird should with that Q100.

X3 On your retracts.make a mounting plate frpm 3/8 ply cut it to fit between your ply ribs, mount the retracts to the ply plate then set it up in the wing but don't glue it to the wing till you have the settings you wan't. This is pretty tricky you will need both tires mounted on the retracts that way you can check to in. angle forward, and wheel laying in the wing. This is really time comsuming. but if you get it right the first time . it will be a lot easear. You will be supporting a lot of weight , so beef up the rib area. How big is the tire going to be? Sullivan makes a nice aluminum wheel and nice tire thats not real expensive. I don't know if they make one that big. Hope this helps. Rich

For all concerned about the retract installation, I have contacted the person who was the last to manufacture the Annco retracts. He is sending me a copy of overlays for each rib. They are supposed to show what to cut out and add. He said there will still be some trimming to do, but the overlays are really good for getting close so you can mount the gear and them align them. I am thinking of making a jig to hold the left and right gear together in the down position as they will sit in the wing so I can lock the two sets of gear together as one piece. Then use the gear as they are locked together to trial fit for alignment with the wing halves joined. (I am building the wing as a one piece.)

Dennis,I got your E-mail.Thanks a bunch.I know this will work out great.What re-tracts are you using,and what size wheel?I wasn't going to touch this plane untill this winter but with this thread that x3 has started, I better get busy.I want to cover the wing so I don't break anything.Mine was partially built and has the gear and glass cowling so I'm getting anxious to get it started.I have the H9 P47 and it fly's great,so I'm looking forward to get this one up.Tom

Hey Y'all,
I haven't got much building done the past few days. Here are some pics of a Nosen P-47 wing with the Annco retracts and 6 1/2" wheels. The retracts are mounted pointing back 10 degrees when retracted to make everything line up. The also are angled forward so the wheels stick out in front of the wing when extended - so what you have is a compound angle to get it all right. I will contact the person who I got the overlays from. I think he is still in business, but not for sure. If he says its OK, I'll post his name and address.
