    Guys, just to let you all know, there is a modeller in the US called Tom Bukaty who has lovingly reproduced the P-47M as flown by Witold 'Lanny' Lanowski (my father) which will be flown on Wednesday 1st May in the competiton. This flying replica has a 105" wingspan which to me is HUGE...!!, you can see in the pic below the relative scale of Tom standing by the side of the model, she looks beautiful and I bet is a stunning view inflight.
    I wish him and his pilot luck and hope he enjoys the day whatever the outcome.

    Great stuff, and good luck to him in the comp. Hope he sends you some photos or video of it airborne.
