The Vailly Aviation giant scale Republic P-47 Thunderbolt is 1/5th scale. The plans show an all built-up structure drawn full size and includes the installation of flaps and retracts. The plans is available in either bubble or razorback variants.  Our plans show both versions and include full size templayes for all ribs amd formers. 


Primary construction is light plywood, balsa and spruce using conventional “Tried and True” materials and building techniques. All structures (with the exception of the rudder) are built-up and are either sheeted with 1/8" or 3/32" balsa. The rudder is fabric covered as per the prototype. No foam is used what-so-ever. A four to six channel radio is required. The Thunderbolt uses 5.50 or 6 inch diameter wheels and a 1/5 scale WW II pilot figure.
