...this is about a half hour long, but seriously cool and informative -
for both P-47 fans and anyone else that just loves airplanes and technology.

It's an actual USAAF training video for the assembly of a P-47 in the
field using nothing but hand tools, man-muscle, the crates it shipped
in, and the trucks that brought it.

Goes to show what you can do when you actually think and build it in.

And we think our assembly process is complicated...

sets!

Seriously impressive, isn't it?

I got to thinking 1/32 isn't big enough myself, so I'm currently
collecting parts to builds a 1:1 scale F-16 Block 50/52***pit myself -
that's how I got interested in this particular forum!

I've followed this guy for some time - he recently sold this***pit on
Viperpits, and the company that made the kit has gone on hiatus...which
is a shame, because I was thinking of buying their ACES II...

> http://www.FoundCollection.com/

Yes - got those all bookmarked, and have the panels set and about 60% of
the required toggle switches in hand already!  Plus a HOTAS Cougar and
Warthog, and MFD bezels.

Getting ready to place the order for my center/instrument panel items,
and have full sized sets of plans for my***pit tub and ACES II.  I'm
considering building my ACES II out of aluminum - it may actually be easier.

I hereby change your status to 'More nuts than I am'
(and that says a lot.......)

Those projects sounds like a LOT of fun and sounds like they could give
al whole lot of fun when they are finished :-)

Thumbs up for the good spirit and good work :)
