    Anyone have, or know where I can download or purchase Erection Maintenance Manuals for the P-47 Thunderbolt. Looking specifically for Razorback models, but any P-47 manual will suffice.

    Hi,

    The Smithsonian National Air and Space museum in Washington has a large amount of Republic documents, including the Erection and Maintenance and parts catalog for the P-47D. You can fill out an inquiry form at their website and after that things are pretty easy and explained.
    The E&M manuals are not cheap though...
    I did not had any luck in finding them somewhere else.

    Good luck...

    Kind regards from Holland,
    Sander

    I've found links to the P-51D&K Erection and Maintenance Manuals that were free, but nothing for the P-47. Found places that sell them a while back, but as Kingscoy stated they were pretty expensive.

    Looks like someone is selling CD Copies of the P-47 B,C, and Erection Manuals over on that on-line auction site that starts with the letter E. Search the auctions with these key words "p-47 erection maintenance manual" and it brings it up, looks like he has 8 CD copies available.

    Zeno's Warbird Videos sells a DVD that has WWII P-47 training films, including a terrific film on how to assemble the P-47.
