Question
Armament for 1/8 Scale p47 Thunderbolt

Hello All;

I am building the Top Flite 63" p47 Thunderbolt. I am going with the 108 gallon drop tank on the fuselage, but was thinking of putting 1/8 scale 500lb (or 1000lb) bombs on the wings as I've seen pictures of these on the full scale planes and think that they look cool. I haven't had a lot of luck finding the bombs for this size of airplane. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.

You can build these bombs out of balsa. Just get a scale side view and blow it up to the correct side, then either cut circular formers or shape a foam block and use 1/32 or 1/16 balsa sheeting for the skin.
