Black Horse P-47D Thunderbolt
The P-47D Thunderbolt is one of those aircraft that has stood the test of time. It has been modelled on countless occasions, but when Black Horse decided to make a big one for 30cc petrol engines they went all-out for realism and presence in the air. The real Thunderbolt was a very rugged machine that often returned from combat with large lumps missing, even engine cylinders! The Black Horse version will not quite achieve that, but she certainly is tough!
Strength where it is needed and weight saving where it is not, that is how Black Horse designs their models. From the very beginning, the CAD design is optimised to provide the correct combination of toughness and low wing loading. Low wing loading means no nasty surprises at slow speed and less wear and tear on the undercarriage. The supplied undercarriage is the very latest generation of Black Horse air type with CNC machined mechanics and tough oleo legs. The undercarriage has been refined and improved throughout all Black Horse production to culminate in this new generation system.
The CNC cut balsa and ply parts have been jig assembled in the factory to assure complete alignment during your assembly. All wood parts are covered in durable Oracover film and finished off using authentic decals for both a dramatic and practical colour scheme.
The 30cc Thunderbolt makes a great choice for scale modellers that want something practical and just can’t be bothered to spend a year building it. Why would you want to when Black Horse does it so well out of the box for such a great price?
