The original modeler lost all of the work in a PC crash. A very good reason why they should be regularly backing it up. We are hoping that the project is not dead in the water, but are also looking for qualified modelers interested in making soem money if they are qualified and can produce a quality full model to be included in PF.

Seems to me it would look exactly like a P-47D we already have except for the ventral fin before the
vertical stab. So how hard could it be to make??
Did it have a different cockpit or different shape to the wings or something?? They look like a D to me except for that little fin. Is there something I've missed??

Externally, they had the stabilizing fin ahead of the vertical stab. Some also had clipped wings as well. The problem in making it flyable though is the fact it has a completely different cockpit setup thus requiring the modeler to make a new one from scratch.

wasnt just a clipped wing, was a whole new redesigned laminar flow wing...and the fuel system was completely revamped....

the N is a much different veast than any previous jug...

the stabizing dorsal fin was added from the P47 D 25 series and up...

Well, I was gonna wait until I restarted work BUT I have gotta the model back from PlaneEater who I sent it too and will start back work in a week or so. The cockpit though wouldnt be to hard to model from the D-27 Pit. And I, and I alone is the only person who will complete the N in the shortest amount of time because PlaneEater and I are the only two to have it and neither one of us will hand it over so, Someone, said to get it from him, but that's not gonna happen. I only have the the final stanges of the model to finish then on to the pit.

Eagle, You have to have confidence, Marine!

That's the one P-47 that would make me want to be a Jug driver for awhile.

The main difference between the D and N is the use of the "C" series engine and longer wings, with squared off tips. They were not clipped. An 18 inch extension was made to the wing at the wingroot to carry a total of 200gal. more of fuel, the first P-47 to carry fuel in the wings. The fillet of the N models is also larger than the ones installed on D's and M's. The ailerons were modified and flaps redesigned as well. This substantially raised the Jug's rollrate over it's D siblings, effecting just over 100 degrees a second @ 250 TAS. For comparision, a P-47D-30-RE could roll at 85 degrees a second at the same speed. At higher speeds, the N widened the gap further.

The new engine allowed the N the retain it's energy better, and raised it's top speed to a blistering 467mph @ 32,000ft. This was with stock boost settings. Overboosting was common in the field on D models, and operational P-47N's might have been 5-20 mph faster than the official numbers. 467mph is the official number, though, which beats any other production prop fighter at the time except the P-47M @ 470mph. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

With the internal fuel load raised, and addition of droptanks, the P-47N had a longer range than the Mustang. It didn't do this by being frugal with the fuel. Total capacity internal was 570 gallons. (370 gal.in the fuselage, 200 in the new wings.) Two wing drop tanks carried 600 gallons. 1,170 gallons of fuel wieghs about the same as a normally loaded Bf-109G-6. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif Range: 2300 miles. With a range like this, many automated controls were adopted to help ease pilot workload on long missions.

Priller, I really hope we can get this bird in the air. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

If we got the November, we'd be called newbs for flying it since it was so... sexy.

The P47 looks like a fricken jet fighter, if you take off the prop... It's just such a beautiful airplane, lightyears away from any predecessor, whether P36 or other P47 variants.

Sometime ago a friend promissed it to me but he never made it, and i would really love to see this UK fighter in the game, especially because Brazilian Air Force used it in the 60's/70's...

Thanks again and can't wait to shot these Ki-84's http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif
