    The Giant Jug is Here! This is the 1/6 P-47D Thunderbolt Gold Giant Scale Edition Airplane Kit. This was modeled after the P-47D-30-RA attached to the 366th Fighter Squadron, 358th Fighter Group, USAAF, Tour, France, 1944. This 1/6th Scale Warbird boasts Incredible Scale Accuracy, along with the Ease of Assembly made possible by Gold Edition Engineering. Cowling: Length, Firewall To Front: Height, Rear At Firewall: 12-3/8 Height At Front: 9+ (1 back from spinner) Width At Rear: 9+ Width At Front: 8 (1 back from spinner) COMMENTS: This kit can be fiberglassed or covered with film covering. After market are available (retracts, cockpit interior, pilot) (see optionals on the Accessory Completion Guide for these items) This kit comes with the bubble canopy. For the Razorback version, simply use the included wood for building and also purchase TOPQ8042 clear canopy to convert this kit. The O.S. FF-320 has plenty of power to fly the Giant P-47. The cylinder will protrude through the sides of the cowl and only is a couple of oz heavier than an US 41 and shouldn't be a problem. The wing planform is scale, but the airfoil is a little different compared to the actual airplane. The stab and fin have been enlarged to help stability. Everything else is pretty close to scale. JAL 1/3/00 ir/jl A small portion of the Robart landing gear protrudes from bottom of wing when retracted. The design and installation as specified are reasonable for a sport scale airplane. The entire gear, wheel and mechanism are fully within the wing, except for that portion of the strut that bends out and around the wheel, which protrudes something like +. To get the strut completely inside the wing, it would have required thickening the wing or placing the wheel right where the spar is. Both of these alternatives would have been costly and the second would have added much complexity. Robart now offers an optional specialized strut, which we do not carry.
