This is a FMS 1700 mm P-47 I bought from Bananahobbies.com and modified it to be a "B" version "Razor Back" I also repainted it up and made most of the decals my self to be a different scheme along with a few other enhancements like a working bomb drop, added the scratch built bazooka rocket launchers, and custom made pilot figure

Can you tell me how make you to make the checkerwork on the nose of the plane?
Where are you found the very beautiful decals? can you divide them?

For the back part of the canopy, how are you to proceed to make the transformation?

I will buy it in version kit alone. Can you advise me for the electronic part?

The checker board pattern on the nose I custom painted my self and the decals I made my self custom with water slide paper.
The Razor back part of the fuselage I used depron foam and balsa wood and custom made and used the canopy from a top-flite conversion kit

the electronis parts are all stock from FMS except for the retracts I used E-flite 60-120 90 degree retracts.

I made them from Model rocket tubes, masking tape, and balsa wood for part of the frame. They are attached to the wing with the same clips that the stock ordnance comes with on the stock setup...I had a spare left over set of them when I changed out the pylons on the mustang and used the HK bomb drop.
