Martyn shares his experience with us, in building a P 47 Thunderbolt.

The plane was scratch built from Vailly Aviation plans.Vailly glass cowl & canopy. Dynamic Balsa cockpit kit. Decals by Kirby's Custom Vinyl.Wingspan is 92" and weighs 34.5lbs. Brison 70cc engine with Bisson muffler.Sierra Giant Scale mains retracts + Robarts retract tailwheel. Fiberglass over balsa sheet skin with latex house paint finish (Vailly method). JR X9303/ 2.4 GHz radio with 10 servos (mostly Hitec digital). 2 Rec. batteries + 1 ignition battery(6-volt system). My homemade spinner is mostly solid alum, so no other weight needed for balance.
