Top Flite Thunderbolt Scale Airplane. No other word does justice to the "Jug". The P-47 Thunderbolt served many Allied forces during WWII, in every combat theater ?it was the largest single-engine fighter of its time. This P-47 ARF model earns the "exceptional" description in its own right. The detail and quality will impress even the most discriminating scale modeler.
* Assembles in as little as 15-20 hours.
* Built-up and sheeted wood construction, covered in flat-finish film.
* Durable, high-quality mechanical retracts.
* Painted cowl, detailed cockpit, and three nose art decal options.
Top Flite went above its already high standards for construction quality and scale realism to create this ARF. It assembles in only 15-20 hours ?but you'll be as proud of the P-47 as if you'd built it from a kit.
The checkerboard pattern painted onto the fiberglass cowl follows every contour perfectly. Few die-hard kit builders would have the patience and skill to achieve such striking results.
Anyone familiar with Gold Edition ARF warbirds expects nice details in the cockpit ?but the P-47 still manages to amaze, with ultra-fine touches and even rudder pedals. Add your favorite pilot figure and enjoy!
For the ultimate scale experience, Top Flite includes durable, well-engineered mechanical retracts. They provide the strength needed for confident landings and are concealed during flight behind fiberglass landing gear doors.
Use the P-47's flaps to increase altitude faster at takeoff ?or to reduce speed and decrease the distance needed for landing. A steerable tailwheel makes it easy to stay in control on the ground.
Top Flite includes flat finish decals for three different nose art options ?all historically accurate artwork from actual WWII P-47D Thunderbolt aircraft. Customize your model with your favorite!
The factory-applied MonoKote trim scheme does more than capture the accurate colors of the original P-47 Thunderbolt. It also features a flat finish that's true to the look of a battle-proven fighter.
