Product Description


CARF P-47 Thunderbolt "Bubble Top"


Another Giant Scale, All Composite WWII Fighter Without Compromise.


After introduction of the Razorback version of our P-47 Thunderbolt we successfully produced and sold an impressive number highly prefabricated "Razorbacks". However, the demand for a "Bubble Top" never silenced. So, we looked at the amount of modifications we had to make to convert the Razorback into a Bubble Top. 


Modifications mainly are limited to the fuselage's turtledeck and canopy area. The idea to just simply produce a fuselage part and let the customer cut and replace this area was ruled out quickly. The CARF-P-47 kit represents such a well made engineering that asking the customer to cut and replace fuselage parts would simply not be acceptable. So, a new fuselage was required. 


CARF-Models has then built an all new plug of fuselage, canopy, canopy frame and dorsal fin, matching the full scale outline 100%. The dorsal fin is a separate part, so that you can produce both the earlier and the later versions of this version of the airplane. Vertical fin, stab, elevator and wings we could take over from the good old Razorback. 


All internal construction and equipment installation was directly copied into the new Bubble Top. 


The P-47 Thunderbolt "Bubble Top" features the same high prefabrication as it's Razorback brother. 

Actually, due to the complexity of the aircraft and the experience with our other warbirds (e.g. Corsair) we offer also the Bubble Top version of our  P-47 as an ARF plane only. All parts are composite, with silver surface and panel lines and rivets molded in.

Basically, all composite parts are prefabricated to the highest possible level. It’s only left for you to install servos and linkages to the already installed control horns, and bolt on your engine. Lets show you through the contents of the ARF version, which will take your breath away. Please see detailed descriptions of the components in the Razorback Product Page. The Bubble Top is built to the exact same level. 

Its real qualities, the CARF P-47 Thunderbolt will show in the air. What a powerful and monumental appearance. This airplane represents in the air absolutely like the real thing. It is extremely stable, at the same time versatile and maneouverable. The wide speed range and the absolutely smooth stall characteristics make it a pleasure to fly. The ground handling is very good, too. This is due to the wide gear track and the long fuselage. Even though a tail dragger, it even is very manageable on tarmac runways, too.

A scale landing gear with pneumatic extending main struts, compression link for shortening during retraction, and a steerable scale tail gear is available as well as the almost scale sized, absolutely impressive 4 blade prop with Solo-hub and 30” carbon blades.

As you will see, it is almost impossible to put more prefabrication and performance into a warbird than we managed to do with our P-47. This is the plane leading the industry standard from now on in regards of design and prefabrication and flying performance. It’s the new flagship of the CARF warbird line, our pride and joy.

We chose the way of zero compromise. This ARF version is truly ARF and doesn’t leave any guess work to you. However, this does reflect on the price and we hope that we made the right decision by carrying the meaning of “ARF“ all the way to the end. Please accept our approach and appreciate the enormous value your money will buy when purchasing this airplane.
