Model Airplane News - RC Airplane News | TOP FLITE GOLD EDITION P-47D THUNDERBOLT ARF

A scale warbird ARF with exceptional detail!



Scale warbird buffs will get a thrill from the Top Flite Gold Edition P-47 Thunderbolt ARF.  Top Flite really went beyond its already high standard to create the “Jug” ARF with extraordinary detail and quality.  Even discriminating scale enthusiasts will be impressed with how accurately this model captures the Thunderbolt’s looks and spirit.  The checkerboard trim on the cowl perfectly follows the curved contours and is expertly applied at the factory.  The cockpit exhibits exceptional attention to detail, right down to the rudder pedals.  A flat-finish MonoKote trim scheme gives added realism while three different nose art options are included for individual preference.  And the light-weight working flaps on the P-47 make this scale warbird easy to fly. The P-47 Thunderbolt has long held the reputation of being one of the most popular planes for military aviation buffs and the Top Flite .60-size “Jug” ARF does the full-size fighter proud!
