A XP-47J/P-47N cross and/or a XP-47H/P-47N cross are a couple starting points.  If the XP-72 can be discussed here, a XP-72/P-47N cross with a five-bladed prop in place of the problem-plagued contra-prop set-up of the first XP-72 prototype.

Greg:

Do you have any blanks for the XP-47H? I have two of the MPM kits. I want to one as a razor back canopy and the other one with a bubble canopy.

Extra long wings on a P-47N and a wide paddle prop.  Recon pods for cameras and it patrols the skies above Korea.  It becomes the WB-57 of Jugs.

I'll add this to my queue. I have a spare P-47M which now has a future. WP-47M?

Thanks John. I guess the "W" was a PICNIC problem. Problem In Chair, Not In Keyboard.  :-[

But that leads another thread of WWII - Post WWII dedicated Weather Birds.

Maybe the WP-47M starts off as a "weather" version and then moves into the recon business ...or maybe it is designated as such as a cover story...?

Hello Gents!  I am honored that you like my creation.  Carl sent me an invite (Thank you Sir!) and I've been looking around since.  Very nice site; awesome work done here and loads of ideas. 

I have a fondness for P-47's and have done several Koster conversions as well as a P-47H Thunderfloat, all reviews over at Modeling Madness.  I guess I just like odd Thunderbolts.

Some of my Whiffer Links if u wanna check them out:

http://modelingmadness.com/review/allies/us/usaaf/ran72.htm

http://modelingmadness.com/review/allies/us/usaaf/rannalsxp55.htm

I'll try to get to know everyone; prolly lurk for awhile (i'm shy)  ;)   I guess I'll go post over at the "I'm new here" area too. 

Great site here and again, thanks for the invite!
