Hangar 9 P-47 Build (assembly) day 2

Jan 27, 2012 1 Comment by

Here is the video of the second day of assemble of the Hangar 9 P-47 Thunder Bolt.  I finished the flap assembly and move on to the retracts. This is very little modification needed to install the Robart retracts and this moves along much quicker than many other retract installations.  This plane will have an air retracting tail wheel, which was surprising easy to install and works great.  I have included some images below the video for your viewing pleasure.

    Boy can you move fast…lol nice “building” progress. Don’t let the haters stop you from calling a build a build. Regardless of the pre made structures you are still building it. Any way it looks like fun and it looks like they did a great job in the sub assemblies. Wish I could get one but at least we can live it through you !!! Have a great time.
