You have a chance to win the P-47 from FMS!

RCGroups was talking to Leo, the deputy general manager at FMS Model, and we decided it was time to have an FMS contest! I asked which would be the best FMS bird to give away and he immediately picked the Razorback. The new FMS P-47 includes 99% scale control surfaces, landing gear covers, cockpit interiors, plastic cowling, gun turrets, retractable landing gear, panel lines and more. This bird retails for $389.99!

Tell Us Your Call Sign

An aviator call sign is a nickname given to a military pilot, flight officer, and even some enlisted aviators. This call sign is used on flight suit and flight jacket name tags, painted/displayed beneath the officer or enlisted air crewman's name on aircraft fuselages or canopy rails and in radio conversations.

Traditionally someone else gives you your call sign but in this contest you get to pick your own.

The Rules

  • Post in this thread what your call sign would be if you flew a P-47 Razorback
  • You can enter up to 5 names
  • Contest will run: 12/06/16 until 1/10/17
  • The winner will be picked on 1/11/17.
