Tremendous P-47 Thunderbolt

Tremendous P-47 Thunderbolt

Powered by a DLE 170cc flat twin cylinder gas engine, this amazing ¼-scale P-47 Thunderbolt weighs in at 86 pounds and has a wingspan of 132 inches. The Thunderbolt was custom built by Nigel`i Ansen using enlarged Meister Scale plans and uses Futaba radio gear and servos.

Nigel`i also custom painted the Thunderbolt for the owner John Mason of TJD Models UK. The custom retracts were manufactured by Kingfisher Aviation. John is part of the TJD Display Team and he really stole the show at the Headcorn Southern RC Model Airplane Show at the Headcorn Aerodrome in Kent, UK.

  1. Nothing flies like a Meister !

  2. Positively beautiful plane. Now if you just had plans/construction articles for planes like this one, in the magazine…

    1. Impresionante, es uno de mi favoritos y por supuesto tengo uno no tan grande

  3. Looks like a 5 cylinder radial to me – not a flat twin.

  4. Beautiful flying of a great plane and a perfect landing…
