Republic P-47 Turbobolt (10K SPECIAL)

by   13.2k EpicPigster1 (based on EpicPigster1's P-47 Turbobolt WIP)  6 days ago

Thanks for 10K everyone! I really appreciate it, Gimli Glider coming soon!

Special thanks to BogdanX helping me fix the plane, without him, this project would not have been possible. The entire plane has been rebuilt from scratch despite being a P-47, everything on it has been built from scratch.

Controls:
AG1: Lights
FIRE GUNS: 8 nose mounted .50 cals of death
CAM 1: Cockpit View
VTOL: Flaps

One of my hardest projects, I only had the side view so i had to build custom wings and horizontal stabilizers. It is accurate in proposed size and the exact shape of the concept.

HISTORY:
The Turbobolt was America's response to the Me262. They chose to use the P-47 as a basis for a jet fighter since it was so large, but even then they had to make lots of modifications to house the jet engine. In the end, the plane never left paper, as engineers discovered that the airframe was nearing its maximum potential.

As a member of A.W.R.F.U.R, this fighter will be hopefully joining the fight against the worm things!

    Put asterisks around the word you want italicized. One on each side. Ex: * (insert word, but with no space between the word and asterisks) *

    @CRJ900Pilot Let's do a Mustang, I have a lot of other projects going on right now so I think it would be a bit easier.

    @Showtime It's made me happy as well, I love the P-47 to bits. I've even got a model P-47 sitting on my desk, the Razorback version, and it was the first kit I poured my soul into.

    @ChiChiWerx Yeah, but the Thunderjet was a completley new design, the turbobolt was literally a thunderbolt with a jet

    Yeah...this should be called a P-84 Thunderjet, because this is exactly what Alexander Seversky had in mind when he created the P-84, a jet-powered Thunderbolt.
