    Type B-5 Dual Magneto Switch

    Right after I finished the Fuel Gauges for the P-47, I was bit encouraged by the fairly rapid progress.
    In the next day and a half, I created a full set of bitmaps for a Type B-5 Dual Magneto Gauge....

    New Gauge is complete.
    162 Gallons in the Main Tank (60%) has quite a different appearance.

    P.S. Just noticed that the "0" in "270" was covered by the mask. The number was scooted...

    It can be seen from this view why there really SHOULD be a Mask included in this gauge.

    Hello All,

    When working on updates to the P-47D-25 that has been stuck in Ivan's Workshop for a while, I came across a very slight problem.
    The stock P-47D fuel gauge is appropriate...

    P-47 Fuel System Differences

    The attached diagrams show the differences between the fuel systems in the early and late D model Thunderbolt.
    The stock fuel gauge is clearly incapable of reading the larger quantity.

    There are quite a few things that can be done to tune the cruise performance of your aircraft.
    I work with CFS1, but the principles should be the same.

    The P-39DEJ also had the same disappearing Carb Intake problem but the solution of repurposing the Antenna to cure the bleed obviously would not work. We need the antenna mast there.
