    It's about time someone posted this. I've been waiting for years! Now I can finally do something with all these P47 parts kits I've been hording. I guess I'll need to set up a build party as I need at least 50 men to move wings around.

    that was a great old ship.

    i recall asking some old pilots at an air show back in the 90s "how much fuel burn ? '

    a little over a gallon a minute at WOT in boost --

    "how much runway to get this 12 tons in the air?"

    answer

    "ALL OF IT!"

    the truth no doubt.

    Nice! Thanks for sharing. Liked the torque values! A "two-finger pull on a 8" wrench!" LOL
