Semi-Scale

Control Line Stunter

53" Wingspan

Engine .35

By Charles W. Parrott

Scale models of this air­craft are popular, but it has been passed over for semi-scale control line stunt like other radial engine types because of the amount of frontal area. I have long believed that this problem could be successfully solved, and so that project was begun. It has taken a little over two years to produce the model shown here. In designing the P-47D, two goals were set. First, to design a stunt model that was as least as good, if not better, than the top present day stunters Second to compromise only where necessary the scale appearance of the model. The Thunderbolt has attained both these goals. I hope it will encourage others who may have passed up a radial engine pro­totype. There are many popular types which used radials.          .

The famous "Jug", workhorse of WW-II, should be no stranger to the modeler or aviation fan. Known affectionately as "the seven-ton gun platform", the Republic Thunderbolt had the desirable ability to absorb tremendous punishment and still bring home its valuable pilot. Armed with eight 50-cal machine guns, rockets and bombs, the P-47 was a formidable foe. Powered by the Pratt & Whitney R-2800, 2,000- hp radial engine, the Thunderbolt was not a sleek, streamlined fighter when compared with the Mus­tangs, Spitfires and ME-l09's. However, the P-47 has its own beauty, giving the appearance of a powerful brute, which indeed it was.
