    Default Republic XP-72

    Used to fly this "bad boy" with guns mounted under the wing, but I got rid of the guns, and found that my gas mileage increased! Even picked up a little airspeed!

    Very nice aircraft. A Milton Shupe beauty!

    Quite a difference. It looks more sleek and probably handles a bit better too.

    Thanks David and Larry!

    Yes, Larry, I like the change. I have 3 liveries for this one download. 2 are clean and 1 camouflaged with guns. It's a nice download, of course, it's was done by Milton, so that says it all!

    Thanks guys!

    Hi Rick,

    Lovely aircraft, in clean configuration it becomes something of a racer. All that parasite drag done away with, more mileage and more speed. Interesting as a Republic model the tail is identical to that of a Thunderbolt.

    By the way I was using your panel on my DC-4 today. Amazing. Thank you.

    Thanks Khalid. I've always liked the Republic XP-72! It's very stable, predictable, and forgiving! And this particular aircraft is a Milton Shupe aircraft, and he did a great job with it! Very fast also!

    Glad to see you back, participating with us again!

    Very nice, and yes, Milton makes nice models.
    If you want, I did a few paints for it, all imaginary of course, but based on P-47 schemes, bit of a what if the war had lasted longer things..

    Jan - "Got it!" Downloaded the "23" above, and all is good, if there are more repaints, I will have to go fishing for them. This is the only one I came across so far!

    Thanks, Rick

    Jan - I just found and downloaded this. This is especially nice, and I think that will do it for me!

    Jan - Yes, I found that one also on SOH, but, I am done with the Republic repaints, I do like the ones I found that you submitted. I've got plenty now!

    Thanks! Rick
