Hi Dino, just finished going through the parts for the wing and tail kit.
WOW the photos on your web sight do not do them justice. I can say I don't
know where to start. Still have to get some more parts before I begin
construction. Your service is the best.

Subject: RE: P-47
I have just completed the flight testing of my new P-47 built from one of your
fiberglass fuselage kits. I must tell you that I am as happy as I have ever been
with a model aircraft. This bird feels so “Right” in any attitude and looks fabulous
on a fly-by. I have been flying War Birds for 35 years and I am telling you that
of all the ones I have flown, this one is in the top 3 in overall performance,
stability and maneuverability. You and your staff have done a remarkable job on

I finally had time to open the P-47 kit and inventory the contents. I have to
tell you that I have been involved in "full scale" aircraft mfg. and maintenance
for thirty plus years and I have very high expectations for quality. Your kit has
met those expectations in every way! The packaging, wood quality, fiberglass,
instructions, everything is top notch! I look forward to continued business with
The P-47 packets arrived today, and they were beyond what I was expecting
(I've paid $35 for items I literally threw in the trash after they arrived--there's
a lot of junk out there, BUT OBVIOUSLY NOT AT "MEISTER SCALE").
Now I need to get some close ups of a few markings in order to get the angle or
direction correct. I've been building pre-1940 planes for too long. Sure glad
you enclosed the catalog also!

Hallo Dino, Marc here
Thanks for putting my pictures on your site, it gives me a lot of satisfaction.
I bought this weekend a MOKI 150 and I am going to build it in the P 47.
I already let it run on a standard and the sound is marvelous.
When I build it, I will send you some pictures of it.
Have a nice winter holiday and keep up the good work for the real model builders.
A lot of greetings.
Terje Skappel of Norway shows us his modified Meister Scale Fw190a and describes
how he built it. It's a beautiful bird and worth looking at the enlargements of the
photos. See the photos and review

Subject: Landing The P47 With One Flap
One has to ask how stable a design is the Meister P47, if I was
able to land it with one flap fully deployed! I love this plane.
I have six flights on it now. Loops and rolls, Emmelmens, etc.,
smooth and crisp.
On the second flight on downwind, I put in 15 degrees of flaps.
When I was in a left turn to final, I put in 40 degrees of laps for
landing. I didn't know it at the time but that's when the right flap
servo stripped and the wind pushed that flap up (as you were
observant to notice in the pics I sent you). I first noticed it
while taxiing back. I have just now reviewed pictures my friend
took with a high resolution camera and you can see the plane in a
left bank with only the left flap deployed.
It was my first flaps landing. While the plane did want to roll right,
I was able to land it softly using rudder and opposite aileron. Some
of my friends actually said: "Nice landing", not realizing that I was
working to keep it level and not come over the dead line.
Dino, I don't delude myself in thinking I'm some kind of ace pilot.
I am an "OK" to "good" warbirds pilot, flying warbirds for about 15
years. So one has to ask how stable a design is the Meister P47.
Oh, by the way, that was a brand new JR 8411 servo that stripped.
I immediately replaced both flap servos with JR 8611's for subsequent

Subject: Great News
Dino, great news. I finally got to fly my Meister P-47 two weeks ago. As of
this Saturday I have already logged over thirty flights with it. Suffice to
say, I have owned and extensively flown seven Thunderbolts from different
manufacturer's brands which will remain unnamed. They have all been excellent
flyers...however, this one is in another league of it's own! This aircraft
is by far the best flying machine I have ever owned, bar none !! This
includes the aforementioned P-47's, P-51's, P-40's, P-39's, etc, etc.
The Meister P-47 is a truly solid & honest flying machine with no perceived
vices, even at extremely slow speeds and flaps fully deployed. It is fully
aerobatic as any heavy-iron warbird can be. Crosswind-landings or turbulence
a problem? Nahhh! This baby is making me look better with each flight.
Congratulations on a truly great product.

I have wanted a WW II warbird for the last 20 years, but while being committed to
other interests in the R/C hobby, and my business, I managed to hold off the urge
until, while talking with a friend, he recommended I take a look at your kit.
Since the P-47 Jug is one of my personal favorites and your company markets a 102"
P-47 in either the razorback or bubble canopy version, I had to have one.
Being a former Top Gun Winner, (team scale) and high static award recipient, I
wanted to build a serious competitive scale plane using your kit.
Starting with the very first order, Meister Scale and Aero Accessories have been
a pleasure to work with and have gone out of the way to provide me with service
and satisfaction in a timely manner. The accessory line available for the P-47
is extensive and provides quality options to enhance the model all the way to
and including the archive book.
This letter is a thank you for the hours of enjoyment I have experienced while
researching and building the P-47. Miester Scale and Aero Accessories have been
a true delight to work with and a great source of information.
PS: Meister Scale and Aero Accessories are both U S companies, using American
labor to help produce their products. Between the knowledge, quality, and
customer service it's too much to lose trying to deal with a fake. The rip-off
artists have already screwed over the original designer-manufacture, what
makes a customer think he or she will be treated any different?
Subject: An unexpected holiday card
In Friday's mail was an envelope large enough for an 8 1/2" X 11" sheet of paper
that had been folded in half and taped. It had a return address label from
Dino Di Giorgio and Aero Accessories with my name and address hand-written on
its front. Not expecting anything from this company, I opened it and found yet
another envelope with the same return address but this one was addressed to my
old South Carolina address of a year and a half ago. Now I'm really curious.
I opened that envelope and found a Happy Holiday card from Dino and company.
It had first been sent December 11th, returned to Aero Accessories and resent
to my correct address January 9th. And you know what? I'm thrilled!!!
Think about this, gang. Dino cared enough to send a card to someone he never
met in person. I was just a customer who purchased a very few accessories from
him over a year ago. But Dino kept me in his customer files and wished to remain
in contact with me and those who have done business with him and Aero Accessories.
How many business owners do that in this day and age? But the really amazing part
is that when the original mailing was returned, he didn't just throw it out.
He took the time to determine the correct address an re-send it even though the
holiday had past a week before. And each time this card was sent it cost Dino
and Aero Accessories money...........$1.00 to be exact. Would you buy a card
and spend a buck in postage to send a card to someone you never met?
We read comments all the time on the RC websites about the lack of customer
service from this business or that but Aero Accessories cannot be lumped into
that group. Dino's is the kind of business that I want to deal with. Yes,
I was looking to begin a new project in a few months and it was not going to
be a Meister Scale aircraft. Thanks to Dino and his group at Aero Accessories,
I am now considering the Meister FW 190 D9 instead.
Dino knows how to operate a business and satisfy his customers' needs. This
is the kind of business I wish to work with as I know I will be treated fairly
and with respect. Thank you, Dino, and please, accept my belated wishes for a
prosperous new year. We'll be in touch.

Thought I'd send a note to let you know how I feel about my new Meister P47.
This is by far ... the best flying warbird I have ever built and flown. It
flies light and is rock solid on landings. I have been flying r/c since
single channel escapement days and warbirds for over 15 years but have
never experienced this kind of stability and responsiveness in a scale
model. For years I have heard from fellow modelers how great the Meister
Scale planes fly. Now I can say first hand it's true.
Congratulations on a great design.
Let's see ... which Meister Scale will I build next.
