Looks more like a T-6 than a P-47

They did (later models) but like the FW, were inboard, rather than so far out to give them better roll. But I don't think the guns aren't properly positioned in that picture, as they would be in a real wartime I-16... mainly because if you look at pictures and stuff from WW2 you see that the wing cannons are much closer to the fuselage than that. (I'm not sure why they'd move them though?)

EDIT: Just learned why they had them out so far. Because it put less vibrations on the pilot.

I was just looking through the duxford pics the other night and noticed them sticking out. In guessing they've been either moved of position there for aesthetic reasons although they look as if they'd only just clear either side of the prop

Here's the full pic
