The problem with the P-47 strut is that, while they are inddeed offset, the offset is very shallow. It's really something about half way between an offset strut and a straight one. I'm not sure anybody makes one like it for a .60 size P-47 and the "normal" offset struts like Robart offers are much deeper and might cause as many or more problems. All speculation on my part though as I've not built this particular Jug. Scale or not Gree the airplane looks fantastic.
