I have started modifying the airfoils. This is going to give me more space for the retractable wheels. I will be going a little over scale - my wheels are already over scale by 1mm width, at the wing root the Fw190 wing depth should be 21.85mm, my wing is around 24mm not including the sheeting.

FW190
Wing root chord = 7.5ft
Wing tip chord = 4.5ft
Airfoil Thickness Ratio: Root= 15.3% Tip= 9%

Have also built the fuselage to get a better idea of how this all fits together. The modified airfoil is going to impact the fuse too.

I'm also going to be using the small landing gear retracts from hobby king,
