    Default Up close and personal - P47 Thunderbolt pics

    Nice shots of P47 "Nellie" owned by Fighter Aviation Engineering Ltd. It was at one time The Fighter Collection's "No Guts, No Glory" before moving to the U.S. but is now back in the U.K.

    Take your biggest engine, and build a plane around it.
    Simple
    Kind of like a BeeGee racer, but a bit more solid.

    That's a big beautiful full color P47 picture sir.

    Monday I was making P47 landing gear boxes while enjoying those lines; they never get old.

    Great photos. A great tank with wings down low; and a champion dogfighter at high altitude.
