P-47D Thunderbolt from ESM

Details

ESM MODELS has been producing planes for the RC enthusiast for years. They have a wide variety of beautifully finished scale warbirds. 

The construction of this model is a mix of fiberglass and built-up components. The fuselage is molded fiberglass with preinstalled wood bulkheads and radio tray. The fuse also comes prepainted with the decals preapplied and clear coated for a long-lasting finish. The wings are built up in nature. They are also precovered and painted to match the fuselage with all markings also preapplied.

Inside the box you’ll find all the hardware needed to complete your new warbird. This includes all control horns, pushrods, clevises, wheel collars, wheels, and preformed landing gear. For this review I also used the optional landing gear offered by ESM that is machined aluminum and gives an extra touch of scale offered at an incredible price. There is also an instruction manual in the box. I will say that the directions aren’t the most descriptive, so be sure to do a dry run of every assembly before applying any glue or making any cuts.

Republic P-47 Thunderbolt


Republic P-47 Thunderbolt

The Republic P-47 Thunderbolt is a World War II-era fighter aircraft produced by the American aerospace company Republic Aviation from 1941 through 1945. Its primary armament was eight .50-caliber machine guns, and in the fighter-bomber ground-attack role it could carry five-inch rockets or a bomb load of 2,500 lb (1,100 kg). When fully loaded, the P-47 weighed up to eight tons, making it one of the heaviest fighters of the war.

The Thunderbolt was effective as a short-to medium-range escort fighter in high-altitude air-to-air combat and ground attack in both the European and Pacific theaters. The P-47 was designed around the powerful Pratt & Whitney R-2800 Double Wasp 18-cylinder radial engine which also powered two U.S. Navy/U.S. Marine Corps fighters, the Grumman F6F Hellcat and the Vought F4U Corsair. An advanced turbo-supercharger system ensured the aircraft's eventual dominance at high-altitude, while also influencing its size and design.

The P-47 was one of the main United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) fighters of World War II, and also served with other Allied air forces, including those of France, the United Kingdom, and the Soviet Union. Mexican and Brazilian squadrons fighting alongside the USAAF also flew the P-47.

The armored cockpit was relatively roomy and comfortable and the bubble canopy introduced on the P-47D offered good visibility. Nicknamed the "Jug" owing to its appearance if stood on its nose, the P-47 was noted for its firepower, as well as its ability to resist battle damage and remain airworthy. A present-day U.S. ground-attack aircraft, the Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II, takes its name from the P-47.
