    I would just like to give a "shout out" to some people here for behind the scenes assistance that helps make these projects so much better than they would otherwise be. Thanks to Maarten who has provided so many great resources and reference material, not just for this project, but nearly every project we work on. Thanks to SrGalahad "Rob" for his relentless quest for details hidden in the recesses of the Internet and on bookshelves. The materials and info he finds sometimes blows me away. :-) Rob has also invested considerable time researching, suggesting, and finding the proper gauges and radios for the Lodestar cockpit. There are others who always research and provide inputs early on in these projects, send stuff, provide links, pictures, scale drawings, etc. that tend to go...

    Don't know. I've never looked for this 'feature' as this is much more a flightsimulator than a crashsimulator.

    Hey Stuart - you can't imagine how happy I am to see you around. Thanks for the kind words. Yes, you can depend there will be paintkits for this fleet - our work wouldn't be complete otherwise.

    4 blades - yes please, Sir. IMO it makes for better aesthetics, too.

    Per the info I have: "Since delivery of the planned Aeroproducts contrarotating six-bladed propeller had been delayed, the first XP-72 was equipped with a single four-bladed propeller as a temporary stop-gap measure." The installation of the single prop was done in order to continue testing while awaiting the Aeroproducts contra-rotating props. Since the single-4-bladed prop is the one tested with the R-4360-13 (instead if the supercharged R-4360-19) and the only one for which test data exists, that is the version we will be releasing.

    The Republic XP-72 was Alexander Kartveli's proposal for a replacement for his fabulously successful P-47 Thunderbolt. It was evolved in parallel with the XP-69 escort fighter project. The XP-69 was a completely new design, whereas the XP-72 was a more-or-less straightforward progressive development of the P-47 Thunderbolt. The XP-72 was the first fighter to be designed around the huge 28-cylinger Pratt & Whitney R-4360 Wasp Major, the most powerful piston engine produced during World War 2. The engine was close-cowled and was fan-cooled. The Wasp Major was to have driven a pair of three-bladed Aeroproducts contrarotating propellers. The wing and tail of the P-47D were to be retained, but the airframe was enlarged and strengthened. The turbosupercharger was still located aft of the...
