Hangar 9 P-47 Build (assembly)

Hangar 9 P-47 Build (assembly)

Hay gang, here is the video of the first days assemble of the Hangar 9 P-47 Thunder Bolt.  I started with talking out the wrinkles in the covering (not shown in the video) and move on to installing the ailerons. I was able to start on the flaps before stopping for the day.  I wish I could mover this fast in real life.

  1. Looks like a nice plane. I am hoping the price is not going to be so high tat a guy on V.A. disability cannot afford it… regardless it looks very well made. Hope you have a blast building and flying it. I know I would and will if possible…
    THanks for the articles and the great magazine.

  2. Can you give us a list of other then kit item that are needed/using for the build? Looks like a fun plane to put together and nice and big to get your hands into.

  3. Hi Mark,
    I am using almost everything from Horizon Hobbies that is recommended for this aircraft. About the easiest way to check out the stuff needed is to visit this link and open up the manual PDF. On the first couple pages is a complete listing of all the parts needed for completion of the P-47.
