    Hi guys, I'm Sebastian, live in Sebastian, FL, 28 years old. I'm an unemployed pilot (might change after my interview tomorrow) and love warbirds. I chose my user name because my uncle was the Navigator aboard the B-29 Were Wolf which was shot down on 27 January 1945. I'm also an A&P mechanic in training.
    A friend and I would like to start building a replica P-47, a cockpit to start out, then later on an 82% scale flying one. The P-47 is my favorite fighter, but I'm big into the English chariots as well (Mosquito and Hurricane). The cockpit would be for flight simulating and a nice learner project before diving into a flying replica.
    I'm looking around for P-47 information, so if you have any, please spare it with me. BTW, my favorite model is the D (razorback).
    My claim to fame is that my grandfather flew C-47s and B-24s in India, in B-24 school he flew with James Stewart and he retired from Continental as a DC-10 Captain, and currently my dad is a 747 driver for Kalitta. IF you'd like to know anything about me, don't hesitate to ask. Thanks.
    -Sebbles

    Welcome aboard Sebastion - I believe another member is already building or has built a P-47 cockpit so you might get a few good tips.

    Welcome aboard B29! There is tons of stuff here for the P-47 oncluding, possibly the manuals. Just do a search. Sounds like you have flying in your blood.

    I may be wrong but I thought someone was asking about a WWII machine named "Werewolf" on here about a year ago?

    Hi Guys, thanks for the reception. I'm looking forward to doing a lot of research on here. Njaco If someone is asking about Were Wolf, I'll answer whatever questions they have. I've done a ton of research on it, and it's interesting what I've found. Where in South Jersey are you from? I used to live in Trenton before I moved here to FloridaShinpachi Where did you get the illustration of Were Wolf? I just had a profile art work done, so I'm using it as my signature photo. I'd like to get over to Japan and visit the crash site, and there is also a gentleman with some wreckage and a parachute, I believe it's my uncles, he fell to his death after his 'chute failed to open.
