The mock American fighter aircraft from II. sv. War with rubber drive or tethered model engine 1.5 ccm. Die-cut parts. Wingspan 768 mm. Suitable for conversion to RC electro.
Semi-scale model for this was one of the most powerful Allied fighters of World War II, Republic P-47D in the newer version with kapkovitým canopy, called "Bubble-Top". Fast, robust, with a huge battery of eight 12.7 mm Browning machine guns, able to carry an incredible load of bombs and missiles, the legendary "Kotlář" liquidating locomotives and trains a large part of Nazi Germany and the occupied countries ...
Kit large free-flying mock low-wing fighter designed for propulsion by rubber; instructions and plans allow you to build a model as well as a free-flying model powered internal combustion engine 0.8 ccm, confined model with an internal combustion engine 1.5 ccm or as a static model with sophisticated details including interior maketovými cabin museum-quality scale 1:16 (this version captures the special drawing "Action Plan").
Model is a classic balsa construction in Rozsyp with předseknutými wooden parts, plenty of maketových accessories of vacuum molded plastic, plastic injection molding parts drawn by a předseknutými parts of "plastic plywood", a light and strong material to replace traditional plywood. The hull is constructed of course right minimaketářskou technology with baffles and a plurality of longitudinal, allowing faithfully reproduce the rounded shapes. Built in two steps - thanks to "slit" in the vertical plane stand directly on the countertop first half of the fuselage, and then the "dolepíte" half a second. Thus it is ensured that the hull complicated shapes stand straight and symmetrical, without needing any special preparations. Given that it is a model for advanced builders, you should already have more previous experience with classical building and test-flying models powered by rubber.
Thunderbolt is also suitable for conversion to RC model electric powered or powered internal combustion engine 0.8-1.2 cc - although a construction plan does not offer these options for more experienced modeller would not be a big problem.
Kit includes: předseknuté balsa parts, balsa wood beams, předseknuté parts from plastic plywood, vacuum molded parts Scale (motor cover, motor ...), clear acetate molding canopy, plastic propeller shaft and head, rubber volume (rubber 5x1mm) steel wire to the chassis and other small parts, plastic wheels, lining paper handle a rocker for tethered model, big wet decal sheet, building plan.
Tip for building: Předseknuté parts NEVYLAMUJTE! Turn the cutting board, place it on a work surface and lightly sand the fine sandpaper (No. 220 or finer). Parts can then be easily separated; should still have some wood fibers "bound" to a cutting board, carefully separate the part of the pattern, using a sharp knife (suitable as Excel No.1 knife with a blade 11).
Treatment of rubber volume: a new eraser gently wash it in soapy water and allow to dry. Then lubricate it with castor oil (sold in pharmacies) or silicone grease for the lubrication of fishing line (you get the fishing tackle shops). After flying with the volume model, remove and store it in a sealed plastic bag. Lubricated rubber volume depends more smoothly and with less friction - gives more power and last longer. The new volume is also advisable to first fetch - for the first 2-3 years only to turn the 80-100 revolutions before it can safely shoot more.
