Once the stabilizers got glued, I continued with the wing strauctures.

Nothing but fun here! I like the looks of the model at this step.

1. If you want to build the model with tail wheel well, the part of the aft fuselage does not show where to cut out the well.

I think I understand what you are saying...
but I'm not sure what you mean.
Can't you just use the separate tail wheel door parts as reference for finding the doors on the fuselage.

Look to the Parts pages...
the closed Tail Wheel doors are visible on the fuselage part #5.
Just below that, on the part sheet, are door parts #9 (inner and outer) for open doors.

So, just cut out the same doors on part 5
and after you assemble the fuselage, you can install the open doors (part 9).

I did not indicate (on the model sheet, or the instructions) to cut out the doors
before you assemble the fuselage.
That might have made things easier for you.
Sorry.

I did it by myself, Dave, for me it was no issues.
I'm thinking for modelers who would like to see a couple of lines pointing where to cut
in case they want to add the tail wheel well. Maybe a little arrow and a note can be added.
I don't recall how is it on the other P-47.

I cannot upload photos from my cell to Flickr. My cell service provider is having troubles I guess.

I have to wait for next week to finish the
landing gear, because I will be volunteering at the Air Show here in San Antonio during the
weekend.

But for Dave to release it I will take photos of the model in the usual take for the model's cover.

I will upload photos tonight.

Take your time Gerardo.
I will release it sometime next month, after you are done.
No rush.
I would rather see the entire build report first.

And your builds are always first rate.

Thank you for the praises, Dave! But as Rcav8tr2 says... is your awesome designed
models.

And talking about design, Dave, here are another needed fixes:

1. Cowling former part is 24A. But instructions mark it as 39.

2. Part 7, on the vertical stabilizer part, the white areas don't have a guide line.
Cutting the rudder would be confusing as there is no line in the white areas
(again, it was not for me, but might be for other modelers).

And for the previous note, already discussed, is part 5 the one that doesn't
mark where to cut out the wheel well area.

A little more: The Wings

I cut out the landing gear door areas and machine guns holes.



The wing tips were a little hard to glue. I had one wing all messed up for that. So I cut out the wing tip structure. I guess that was me, because I measured the wing structures VS the wing skin, and all was OK. Yeah, maybe it was just me.






Then I continued with the spine. Interesting feature in the Razorback model.





I thought I was wrong with the measuring, but the instructions are clear to say "trim as needed".
So a little trimming and all was good.

A little more on the Razorback.

Let's do the engine cowling. I liked it that is not that complicated.

I began by laminating the motor piece. The instructios DO NOT point
to this, but I think it's worth the effort.







Then I found a little issue: the cowling front part didn't close.
I still need to double check on this, but so far, I don't see any bad cuts from me.







Once I cut out the excess on that piece, everything fit good.

Not sure why you had a problem there gerardo.
I have built four of these cowls since updating the P47, with no problems,
but the cowl is the same cowl from the earlier version (and it went together okay).

I'll print out the cowl parts for "Lucky" and try it myself tonight.

If you haven't already, don't glue the engine cowl to the fuselage.
If there is a problem, I'll give you some new parts.
If there isn't a problem, I will ask you to try it again.
I need the front of the aircraft to look good in photos.

Thanks
