About this Plan

P-47N Thunderbolt. Scale model of the American WWII fighter, for control line.

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Note see P-47N Thunderbolt (oz3290) also.

Update 7/1/2022: Added article, thanks to Pit.

Note the article credits Franco Bugada as the designer. This is strange as the plan drawing is clearly the same as the 1960 Loris Kanneworff plan. It is not clear how we here should best credit this plan, so users can easily find it.

Supplementary file notes

Article, in Italian.


Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)? That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

    ScaleType: This (oz13545) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.

    If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.

    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Republic_P-47_Thunderbolt
    Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
    For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
    Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

What a fine job you have done merging together a lot of A4 sheets.

As you can see it's the same plan published on Fare A magazine oz3290. Loris Kanneworff was the designer, Elvio Tosaroni the inker. I still have in the attic this model uncompleted built by my father in the 60'. Note the very thin and flat bottomed airfoil needed to reduce air drag in order to use typical 2,5 cc engines, the most used engine size in Italy in those years. Probably, as usual, a derivation by the size and sections from Musciano oz1955.

Pit you are correct, as always. Turns out this is the same plan as oz3290, just has slightly different layout on the page. My mistake, I never noticed that. Ok, have changed the designer credit here to Loris Kanneworff.

* Credit field

The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.


This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
