I don't actually know where he got it.
I'll probably drop in tomorrow and I'll ask him and let you know.
Glad you like it, I'm blown away so far.

He's a very committed modeller.
Been at it for 30 years.
He has inspired me and taught me everything I know.
He works at the shop but doesn't own it, and when it is quiet he heads to the back and builds my plane for free and for fun.
That is true passion!
Excellent pilot as well with a house full of customised aircraft.
He moved the cock pit forward for a more scale look, sharpened the wing tips, found a more scale canopy and moved the tail wheel to a scale position.
Also the elevator and aileron servo's he moved to the interior of the plane and added large carbon fibre tubes as push rods.
My favourite touch is the cooling ducts or as he calls them "nostrils".
I'm really just a spectator here, every week I go check out the progress and learn something new about the real P 47 and then take pictures.

Bruc Nut:
Do yourself a favor: discard the original retracts and put something more rigid.
The wire struts used are just too weak to handle this plane.

Did everyone use CA hinges or did anyone go with Robart pin hinges?

@ TAILSKID
Damian got the pilot from
http://www.theworldmodels.com/para/products/search.php
He did a few mods like chopping off the head and repositioning it to the side and adding the seat belts made from masking tape.
Plus it was a couple of years ago so not sure if the present one is exactly the same.

@Arruda
Thanks for the heads up!
We are going to be using oleo struts.
You can see them in one of the earlier pictures.

Not sure if this thread is completely dead, but I just picked up this version H9 Jug kit online. Lots of great advice in these threads. Dasintex, if you see this, that Faux Cockpit Floor is just what I've been looking for. I sure would appreciate downloading the file if you can provide a link. What a great idea for adding quick detail in a sport scale warbird.

I'm at work, I have the Photo File on my Home PC; I will send it to you; all I did was print it on some Flat/Matt Photo Paper, cut to fit the cockpit floor, paint the pilot torso to match the legs of the pilot in the Photo.

Thanks! It would be great to learn how to do that, maybe I could dress up some other planes.

I have one NIB i have seen videos and eard stories the tail section has weak areas that could become a problem in high G moves if anyone has a fix or experienced this let me know.

Sad News today;

Lost my H9 60 Size P-47; had 3 great flights today and on the 4th flight the engine quit over the worst part of our flying field, couldn't clear the trees. The fuselage was destroyed except the canopy; amazing, the wing is perfect. If anyone needs a wing complete with Robarts Pnuematic Retracts, Oleo Struts, Scale Wheels/Tires, Working Gear Doors, etc; Let me know, make me an offer, before I part it out, they don't make this plane anymore, maybe someone has some use for the wing, I'll let it go cheap. Attached are a few pictures of the landing Gear and Doors, taken in better times!

I'm new to this forum and just got my P47 from a guy in town her where I live. I have never seen one of these babies fly but after reading the forum over the last couple of days I see its a great plane. The only engine I had to put in mine was a ST90 with a 14x7 apc. First flight was good and bad. This thing flew like a scalded ape... very fast, loved it! The only problem I had almost destroyed the plane...elevator flutter coming out of a split-S, full power, everything trimmed out, I hear the loud buzz and I pull the power, buzzing stops, made a couple of laps at half power and the engine dies(pressure line broke). So after all the drama and a dead stick landing, I'm back in my shop, nothing broken thankfully but what a thrill on my first flight. I'm hooked on this bird for a while.

I enclosed some picks of the elevator and stab before I wacked them off the plane to rebuild. I'm needing any advice, the stab broke on both stabs in the same place on both sides and the gap was the same on the elevator between the leading edge of the elevator and the trailing edge of the stab on both sides. I thought this might be the reason for the flutter until I saw that the control horn had the back screw pulled out or stripped out from the base it screws in to on the opposite side of the elevator. Any thoughts??

Something else to note was that the guy who assembled this glued the stab in with an inch difference between the two sides of the stab.... in other words its not level so I'm pulling it out to rebuild it. Should I go back with the same flat stab and elevator? I'm wondering if the TF P47 stabs, elevator and rudder be the same size, span, ect. While I'm in there I'm just gonna gut and rebuild.

Thanks,

Might be worth a call to Horizon in Campaign. I think they still have parts for this P47. It would be nice to start with fresh empennage!

Do you think the gap is the culprit here or the control horn that caused the flutter?? Possibly both...?
