FMS 1500 P-47 Razorback


Coming late this summer, FMs is redoing the P-47 in a 1500 mm size.

Like the P-39 we are asking for the favorite color for this new and redesigned plane.

Time is short as I need to let the factory know by March 15th.

If you have an interest and want to offer your choice please post in this forum.

Once I have a few different options will post a poll of the most popular for final vote.

I will have CNC photos shortly to show.

I'd vote for something similar to the "Belle of Belmont" scheme. The red nose and invasion stripes with the green are great for orientation without altering scale.

FMS need to catch up with the times!!!
Just do OD Green over Grey, with multiple sets of decals.
And then silver with multiple sets of decals.
Durafly and now Fliteline are now doing it!!

You can't please everyone. I for one hate putting on decals and would much rather the OEM do so.

If I had to go with one scheme, I'd choose the one below. What would be better is the OD over neutral grey and have some choices. Please just don't do the red outlined markings like on the Hangar 9 Jug. I know they did it for more color, but it really limits the schemes we can choose from.

Don't like the size as I prefer the 1700's but I like this scheme . . .moding the FMS 1700 into this now. Just my $.02 worth.

i agree, offer plain silver with decal sets, and green/gray with decal sets....

people are tired of having the same plane as everybody else. motion and durafly are starting to do this and I think its great

Count me in for an unmarked P-47 with various options for markings. I really like the personalized touch.

That's the one from Chino but as you know they repainted it to something different

Don't have to say more. Corsairnut was reading my mind. I would like to see one in silver as drab has been done to death
