I don't know of too many planes in this era that are as popular. And with good reasons. Even the competition has come out with their own T28's. Parkzone's flagship plane is the T-28 Trojan. My favorite all-around plane.

The P-47 is a better plane. If the T-28 was $30 cheaper it might make it a better deal, but for $10 I'll take the Jug any day. I have both.

I thought they would be larger diameter than the stock wheels. Stock wheels are a bit over 1.75". On my extra I am using me 109 wheels - they are 3". I have 3" dubro light spoke wheels on my T28, but am thinking about changing to the messerschmidt wheels for it also, they work so good on the extra. The little thin dubro's get wobbly pretty quickly.

That's not the vote around our part of the country. Those that got the P-47 have tried about everything (at least the ones that didn't tip stall it and tear it up bad) and now you don't see the P-47 around much, but everybody still has and flies their T-28's. They maybe don't excell at anything, but are just great forgiving planes with hardly any bad habits.

I measured the P-47 wheel I put on my son's Super Cub and I'm pretty sure it was about 2.5" It's also the same width as the stock wheel. The Spitfire (Mk IX) wheel is a bit narrower but still works on the T-28.

Here is a pic from an earlier post.

Reinforcing the nose wheel on the T-28.

Reinforcing the nose wheel on the T-28.
Below is a picture of where I place a piece of Ply 3mm thick 20mmx30mm I glue it in with 5 minute epoxy. It stops the fire wall cracking and takes the strain off the steering mechanism.

I dug up a couple posts on how I did mine, btw notice the date, that mount is still holding up!

I've had both the grey and the white. The grey finish is harder to see when it's overcast. What type of paint are you using for this type of foam?
