  Home / Model Kits / Free Flight Rubber Powered Airplane Kits / FF-71 Republic P-47 Thunderbolt Razor
 
Also known as the "Jug," the P-47 was a big, rugged, overbuilt aircraft that was particularly useful as a fighter-bomber for the US and its Allies during WWII able to bring its pilot home safely despite extensive damage. Early versions had a razorback canopy configuration which left pilots with a blind-spot at the 6:00 rear position. A bubble canopy solved the problem.

This Thunderbolt Razor kit is a 1/17.5 scale, rubber powered flying model that uses the Precision Beam method of construction. Qualifies for Society of Antique Modelers (SAM) competitions.

This free flight rubber powered kit contains a full-size revised rolled plan, building and flying instructions, hand-picked printed balsa and balsa stripwood, rubber motor, E-B propeller, EBM thrust bearing, vacuum-formed canopy, wheels, TissueCal™ markings, and Easy Built Lite tissue in olive and light sky blue. You will need a building board, hobby knife, fine sandpaper, and glue.

"I am submitting a few photos of the FF71 Thunderbolt that I just finished building. I made some modifications to it that some model builders might like to incorporate into their airplane. First I carved out a recess in the cowling for air scoops and the engine. I found a picture of the 18 cylinder engine on the internet, printed it out, and glued it to the cowling. Second, I added a pilot seat and an instrument panel. Third, I added 2 bombs, from a plastic kit that I had, under the wings. Fourth, I added an external fuel tank and machine guns." - Bill Kallstrom
