I think it REALLY needs tip tanks a la the Piper Enforcer in order to extend loiter time and to free up hard points under the wings for ordnance rather than gas.  Maybe ones like Lockheed used on the F-80?  Tips would also improve the ride in the hot, turbulent air down low.  Also needs AERO racks on the hard points.
 

That’s a cool idea, I was also thinking about a inflight refueling probe, not sure where or how it’d go though..… :D

not at all, but I AM glad I do no know you personally as it would be a rather disturbing image in my head of having you in glad rags trying to impersonate Shirly Temple...

You talking ‘bout Edgar J ? :rofl:

I think I’ll try to glue the engines accessory gearbox to a piece of sheet plastic glued across this section.  Eagle eye people may notice I’ve butchered off all the exhaust pipes. Don’t want to waste my time on something which won’t be seen…. :hmmm:

Can’t wait to see this bird with some SEA paint on! Terrific work.

Gluing the gazillion engine bits together just about cracked me, I’ve got bits and piles of subassemblies everywhere. A right royal mess I’d say.  Time for a cuppa and a restoke of the boiler.  :whistle:

I made a few of the Hasegawa P-47’s. The engine work was always the last assembly I did, procrastination at its best.

I do fear I’ve picked up the virus somehow, somewhere along in my youth ….:mellow:

Well, it looks like I won’t be needing the accessory gear box at all, if anything I’ll need to remove a bit off the back of the crankcase instead….….or place my support in the back of the firewall thingy….:hmmm:
