Their P40 also looks really nice. Besides, FSK has a beautiful scale 190 that flies excellent, and Alfas 190's are nearly as good and also fly great. Here's examples of great flying FW190s: The FSK, ALFA, a reference image and my almost complete, nearly full scale struts I'm making for my FW190. You can have it all with a bit of effort..... I'll probably get a GWS190 at some point and "fix it".
Yes spinnetti, I take back what I said. You can often have a 100% scale outline and get away with it. I also agree that GWS could have done better with their FW-190, but you know that already. The reason I went with the GWS 190 is that it is so easy to modify to fit retracts and flaps. It's just a pity you have to fix all the other stuff too.
