About this Plan

Republic P-47D Thunderbolt - Dogfight Duo 1 of 2 - Radio control sport scale model, for .10 to .15 engines and 2 function radio. These two model designs appeared in the same article.

Quote: - "Dogfight Duo: Two of WWII's most famous fighter planes, the Focke-Wulf 190D (oz8594) and the P-47D Thunderbolt, seemed like such a natural combination that our author decided to include them both in the same construction article. After all what good is a fighter plane without an adversary? Each is for a .10 to .15 engine and a simple two channel radio..."

"The model presented here is as accurate in outline as I could make it. The only obvious deviations from scale are the airfoil section and omission of small detailing. The latter could be included if the builder wished to do so."

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Did we get something wrong with this plan? That happens sometimes. Help us make a correction

I just finished the P-47 half of the Dogfight duo [more pics 004]. Here is a pic of the pair together [more pics 005, 006]. Both are converted to electric and 4 channels (rudder added). The P-47 build log can be found at: Thanks for all you do for our hobby!!!

* 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.
