Conrad, your English is better than some Americans! hahaha
You have definitely done your research so I bet your plane will be fantastic. I have had the luck to sit in a P-47 and was allowed to take a lot of pictures and video. I am currently building a Brian Taylor 82" Corsair, but the Thunderbolt will most likely be my next build.
If you have anything electronic that you would be willing to share please email me at email@example.com
Best regards and good luck!
