Really, I meant to do that...
It looks like the greatplanes P-47... Nice job on the retracts!

(I was wrong, World Models it is... I have the Great Planes P47 and installed retracts, so I thought somebody realllllly got busy with this one...)

Can you please provide additional information such:

1. Wing Span?
2. FUSE is Fiberglass?
3. Where is the Servo @ the Retracts?
4. Any other servo installed?
5. Used? So, it has flown with Glow power?

Thanks!

It seem like a World Models P-47 but, I am not sure until you answer the questions.

Something tells me that those Kitchen Floor Tiles are 16 inches squared?

This will certainly make this model right at 39 - 40 inch wing span.

If it is the World Models P-47 EP then someone used a Glow Engine on a Model that was designed for EP I hope not.

Yes way!
I had this plane (it looks exactly like the World Models P-47 anyway) And here are the specs:
Wing Span: 39.5 in / 1000 mm
Wing Area: 282 sq in / 18.2 sq dm
Flying Weight: 31 oz / 880 g
Fuselage Length: 34 in / 870 mm

Great plane. Seems like a lot of time was put into making it a fuel plane. Nonetheless, those are my 2 cents!

Like I posted earlier, I do hope it is not the WM EP as the vibration from a Glow would be very ugly to the airframe as EP designed and built ARF's are not intended to fly with Glow. Now the other way around is NOT true because I have lots of GLOW - to - Electric conversions and they do well and last a long time.
