I think back in time it was said by Leatherneck a full Iwojima scenery was the idea for the Corsair, which obviously includes a carrier. But I guess right now with the changes in the third party may be it can no longer be assumed that will happen, even though it makes sense for the model.


Anyway I don't see it as a must for the P-47, no matter how they were carried to Europe or not.

Ikea style. Some assembly required. Really, a box with attached instructions.

TLDW: Two crates, fuselage + wings. Assembled in open field using the crates as building materials for temporary platforms. Up to 50 ppl needed to lift the wings. Film is 40 min, then it seem to repeat (not 57 minutes).

Corsair and P-47 both have R-2800 engine. Will the P-47 completion speed up the F4U? The cooling arrangements are different, so is the supercharger I guess. Otherwise, lots of stuff must be common.

Like to see folk's try that nowadays with an F-35.


Ahhh nope, need connection to ALIS, which is only hosted and owned by Lockheed Martin, and of course, scratch the conformal coating, drop that helmet, or bang up one of those saw tooth panels, you are looking at weeks offline as parts procurement is a train wreck at best.

"went up in smoke" NOOOOOOOooooooooh

I'm thinking, no computer modeling, no matter how costly or advanced, is a substitute for testing the real thing.

ED must have access to a real P-47 and cooperation with P-47 pilots. They do have that? The surviving P-47's are not weighed down with guns and armor, so there's that too.
