Top Gun Video Interview — Pedro Sanchez — P-47 Thunderbolt

May 15, 2014 No Comments by

One of our good friends Pedro Sanchez showed up at Top Gun this year with a beautifully detailed Warbird in the form of a CARF-Models P-47 Thunderbolt. Powered by a Moki 5-cylinder 250cc radial engine, the 1/4-scale “Jug” has a 110 inch span and weighs in at 54 pounds! Pedro only started with a CARF-Models airframe, as he added thousands of additional details including screw heads, functional cowl flaps to keep the engine cool on the ground and modified hinging in the tail surfaces.
