RE: Top Flite Giant P-47 Build

Hi Gary,
Bummer about your smaller P-47. At least it wasn't your big one.

I rely on a Smart-Fly Sport power expander on my 1/3 Waco. I run (2) 6v 4200mah packs to the power expander....

RE: Top Flite Giant P-47 Build

I started a complaint thread in the Clubhouse forum, doubt it will do much good. If they do not resolve the issues I will not start another build thread on RCU. My current build will wrap up in 6-8...

RE: Top Flite Giant P-47 Build

I am sure it will come out just fine. That is one of the down sides to letting the paint fully set before removing the mask. The tension of the paint is more than the...

RE: Top Flite Giant P-47 Build

Gary,
I think it looks pretty good. With the baffle you have in place I don't think you are going to have to worry about cooling.

RE: Top Flite Giant P-47 Build

For what you get that still is a good buy.
I just invested $250 for rib stitching and tapes for a 1/3 Waco. Building a good scale model is not fo rthe faint of heart;)

The detailing is...

RE: Top Flite Giant P-47 Build

Looks really good Gary,

SitNfly,
All AMR kits come with the wing jigs and they are nice. You have to really screw up to build a warped panel. I have built 3 AMR kits and they all came out nice.

RE: Top Flite Giant P-47 Build
