I've had them in mine for two years, the one spec'ed for the H9 ME-109, 85 deg. Or abouts. You'll need to increase the width of the mounting rails, did mine with a dremmel. I didn't go with the struts, just used the sprung wire gear supplied with the retracts, No problems with the retracts

The wheels are a little bigger than allowed by the specs, but it doesn't matter.

Thanks Rod!

So the struts are the right length or did you have to modify them?

Struts are the right length ... well close. You have to have a a bit of the pin exposed between the retract and the leg. I use washers to help support the pin from bending on less that perfect landings. (So every second week I have to straighten them lol )

And now for something completely different.

RAF Thunderbolt Mk.1s were fitted with Malcolm hoods. The RAF didn't need another high altitude fighter. They used their T-bolts for ground attack, a task for which it was well suited. The Malcolm hood helped pilots to see about and it had a slipstream assisted hood ejection if things went poorly.
The USAAF lost no time in refitting many of their Jugs and Mustangs with Malcolm hoods.

In the Summer of 1943 the Brits showed off their Hawker Tempest, with a vacuum formed Perspex canopy, and the USAAF took notice. This resulted in Republic production changing to the British design starting with the P-47 D-25 series. This began in May 1944.

At the same time, by 1944 the Jug was coming to the end of it's useful life as a fighter plane in the Western Theater. Like the British Thunderbolts, it was generally relegated to ground attack whilst the bubble topped Mustangs ruled the skies. The Jug was still a venerable high altitude opponent, but it cost nearly $100,000 each to produce and it could take the pounding of groundfire. The Mustang could fly higher, faster and much farther at a meager cost of $40,000.

One notable exception is the USAAF 8th FG that struggled on with their P-47Ms despite incessant issues, including mechanical, electrical, etc.

Cheers!
