P-47D Thunderbolt "Hairless Joe" Camo 1500mm (59") Wingspan - ARF from Nexa - NXA1002-001

The Republic P-47 Thunderbolt was a World War II-era fighter-bomber aircraft produced by the United States. Renowned as a hardy and versatile machine, the P-47 could carry up to 2,500 pounds of external ordnance in addition to its eight .50 caliber machine guns. Propelled by the stalwart R-2800 Double Wasp engine that also powered the F4U Corsair, F7F Tigercat, and many other aircraft, the P-47 was one of the fastest and heaviest single engine fighters of the war, seeing service in all theaters of the war as a bomber escort, reliable ground attack platform, and lethal dogfighter.

We are proud to announce Nexa, our newest brand for quality balsa aircraft with the P-47D Thunderbolt "Hairless Joe" camo, flown by Col. David Schilling, he flew this aircraft the day he downed 5 enemy aircraft on 23 December 1944 raising his final score to 22.5.

The Nexa P-47B is a .46 – .55 size electric or gas option scale series warbird with a 1500mm wingspan, constructed primarily from balsa wood and covered with a fuel-resistant covering. This ARF requires assembly and installation of your choice of servos and power system, and includes flaps, painted pilot, machine gun, antenna and other scale details. The large battery hatch affords ample room for either electric or gas setups. To complete the scale appeal of this beautiful Razorback, the model includes electric retracts and scale struts.
