The “Wicked Wabbit” comes in a well-packed box. Looking inside the fuselage, factory-made lightening holes are everywhere to reduce weight while maintaining a rugged and strong airframe! I was also extremely impressed with the hinges. Instead of incorporating standard hinges, the control surfaces have two attach points with a single rod going through the whole surface, allowing smooth transition with no binding. The covering is a light plastic Mylar and comes painted to match the painted fiberglass parts. It also has an overall flat clear coat added which the model a prototypical finish. The flaps are shaped just like the full-size ones and offer scale performance.
There are a ton of additional features on the model that add to the scale appearance. All the bumps, blisters, mirrors, and antennas are all there! There are a lot of “things” that hang off the P-47 and this one has every one of them! I especially like the used of G-10 (fiberglass sheet material) used for the control horns as well as the engine mount.
