    • Lots of works in my FlickR gallery
Hmmm, Should look odd, and the wide fuselage (= mating it with the narrow Herc nacelle, the Fury/Tempest is very good for this task) is the true challenge. Could even be that the P-47 is also taller than the nacelle's end, so this would take major body work - worth a try, though. Maybe exported into the Iran...?
Haven't checked the size and shape match of the nacelle on a F4U's front end. Height should be good, but, again, the width worries me. Some time ago I added a Merlin with chin radiator to an F4U, and this was a rather tricky and messy task...

If you split the nacelle into right/left halves and spread it to match the P-47 width?
Have it coming down to it's correct size at the spinner end, and fill the resulting wedges.
Standard spinner, new blades, done!

Should work ok?
