Top Flite P-47 first "scale" build and video

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hey guys, I'm just showing off my first "scale" build of a Top Flight giant scale p-47. It is done in the camo scheme used by the RAF in Burma in 1945. Built from the kit over a two year period I relied on Dave Platt's "how to" scale DVD's. Still need to do some weathering but it is pretty much complete. Have put 7 flights on it now. Check out the video of the 4th flight. With a 3W80 it really hauls the mail!

This was my first video as well so be gentle LOL
