Hi All,

So that I don't clog up the owners thread I've decided to move everything over to my blog.

As people who have been following the FW 190 owners thread know, I have recently flew the firewall out of my plane
The foam was beyond easy repair, so I have taken this opportunity to bash the plane into an early D-9 variant.

The images show the progression of the build so far, beginning with a hero shot of the original model and then the damage to the firewall etc.

My 190 was a little unique in that it was one of the first to have its motor come apart in flight (# 25) causing a fire inside the ESC and battery area. This ate a lot of the stock foam away forcing me to coat the entire inside of that area with epoxy. So another failure was eventually inevitable I guess, however it lasted another 180 or so flights, dogfights, crashes and nose overs before the repair finally gave out

So sit back relax and hope to hell that I can pull this mod off

Cheers,

Steve
