With the Jack Devine P-47 model, much
of the work has already been done for you. Imagine opening the box and finding a
fully-formed foam frame waiting there for you! You won't have to imagine
what your model is going to look like framed up. The frame is done, the
shape is already complete! All that's left to do is follow the easy video
instructions for capping, sheeting, and installing some hard points like a
firewall and landing gear blocks, and your model is ready for gear and
finish! Once you look at it you'll realize with a warbird this size just
how quickly you can be in the air compared to a stick-built model. There's
just no comparison in building time, a Jack Devine model builds faster every time!
Break the "Weight
Barrier" that has existed between modelers and great flying R/C warbirds for so
Our Jack Devine Giant-Scale sport-scale P-47 Thunderbolt R/C model kit comes in both Razorback or full "Jug"
versions, has a wingspan of 90" and a typical
finished weight of just 18 to 20 pounds using a gas engine, a warbird
that's light with a massive 1600 Square inches of wing area! It has superb
flying and landing characteristics, the best anywhere!
The legendary P-47 had the reputation for
being the toughest plane in the skies. It could not only dish out the
punishment, it was reknowned for being able to take it as well! Credited
for bringing home many a pilot when it shouldn't have made it, the
"JUG" was well-loved, and with good reason!
The Jack Devine Giant-scale P-47 Thunderbolt model has super-light wingloading
and exceptional strength and durability due to Jack Devine's trademark foam
building technology. Foam building technology makes a warbird that will
FLY! Much like the real P-47, it's TOUGH, and just like
its full-scale counterpart, it's built to take it and to "bring you
home"! It comes with our instructional video to help you
build it easily. The video guides you through the
capping and sheeting of all foam pieces, and the gearing up for hardware,
mounts, etc. Are you wondering about the processes involved? This
website also has building articles filled with a variety of tips and techniques
to help answer many of your construction questions, both now and after you start
building your Jack Devine model!
wings have pre-cut control surfaces and flaps, servo pockets, and wire channels.
Included is all of the balsa you will need for sheeting, a generous hardware package consisting of hardware, landing
gear, and a fiberglass cowling and Lexan canopy are included as well. Cutting for retracts
is optional. Uses Robart Retracts Model #622 with 4"wheels.
