XP-72 UltraBolt

I have taken the XP-72 off the back burner for the time being. I am working on getting enough framework to do an alpha build. The Super Corsair is still priority I just needed a break.

There is a contest going to come up with a theoretical paint scheme for the model. The final model will include 3 paintjobs. The 2 prototypes and the imaginary one.

No it's a P-47 Thunderbolt with a R-4360 Wasp Major instead of the stock R-2800, the intake was just moved aft. It is still an air and oil cooled engine not liquid cooled like the mustang. The intake houses the oil cooler inlets and the super charger inlet.
