Alfa Model P-47D Thunderbolt ARF

Availability: In stock


The Republic P-47 Thunderbolt, also known as the 'Jug', was the largest single-engined fighter of its day, and a vast improvement over the Curtiss P-40 Warhawk, its predecessor. It was one of the main United States Army Air Force (USAAF) fighters of World War II, and also served with other Allied air forces. The P-47 was effective in air combat but proved especially adept at ground attack. It had eight .50-caliber machine guns, four per wing. When fully loaded the P-47 could weigh up to eight tons. A modern-day counterpart in that role, the A-10 Thunderbolt II, takes its name from the P-47.

Alfa Model P-47D Thunderbolt ARF-1
The Alfa Model P-47D Thunderbolt has the following features:
  • It is almost ready to fly: you have to apply decals, install the propulsion unit and the RC equipment. You can utilise the kit's box as the transport and storage container for the finished model.
  • The model is moulded from extruded polystyrene foam with a tougher surface layer, making the model more resistant to surface damage. All exposed places are also covered by additional plastic reinforcements. The strength/weight ratio of the model is high, therefore the danger of damage in normal operation is very low.
  • When designing this model the maximum attention was devoted to its aerodynamic layout (e.g. the semi-symmetrical wing section, the symmetrical horizontal tail section were used), ensuring high aerodynamic finesse, with the resulting wide band of operational speeds and docile flying characteristics typical for much larger models.
  • The range of proven power units offered enables to build a scale model of flight performance corresponding with that of the best slow flyers, as well as with the fully aerobatic models.
  • To control the model you need the RC equipment suitable for controlling the slow-flyers - it would enable you to fly majority of the aerobatic figures (with the possible exception of those that require the rudder control).
