When originally designed, no provisions were made for the use of drop tanks. At the time, the Army Air Corps considered them as too dangerous. It later became obvious that drop tanks would have to be fitted in order to escort bombers deep in to Germany. Some of the plumbing to accommodate the tanks, and the design of the tanks themselves, were done under battlefield conditions. This accounts for the variety of drop tanks seen on various models.

The P-47 for sale by American Eagle Aircraft, built by Mike Crosby, is from a 1/5 scale kit. The wingspan is 90 in. with an all up weight of 32 lbs. American Eagle recommends Zenoah 62, or Sachs 4.2 and up engines for power. Mike's airplane has a Fox 4.2 engine up.

The airplane had extended landing gear in order to provide clearance for its 12 foot diameter propeller. It had an air conditioned cockpit and heating in the gun bay to insure that the machine guns would not jam due to freezing. Later aircraft were equipped with engine water injection for use during "emergency war power" maneuvers.

The model D was able to carry 1,000 lb. bombs under each wing along with a center drop tank.
