Bob Holman FW-190 BNF
My truck broke down today, so something has to go to pay to fix that....
I built this model with the intent of using it as my scale competition model for the past 2 years. Due to financial and other reasons, that has not been the reality of its existence. I have flown it roughly 2 dozen times with a Seidel ST7-70 radial on it. It flies fantastic, but the radial proved to be just not enough power for it. I have since acquired a Brand new DLE-55 for the model, So new in fact, that it has not been installed yet. That said, the DLE will be installed prior to sell and the model readied for flight. I can sell the model with the Radial, but add $1800 to the price tag.
Specifics on the model:
- Bob Holman 1/5 FW-190 Short kit. Fiberglass fuse, cowl, gun hood, foam wings and tail.
- Scale accurate aileron, flap, rudder and elevator hinging.
- All control linkages are fully concealed (NOTHING is exposed on this model!)

The plane flies excellent. On a scale of 1-10, I would give it a solid 9.5 It would be a 10 in my eyes, except i'm not completely happy with the aileron and flap servo covers on the bottom of the wing. I've had plans to get them to fit with less of a gap, but never find the time.
I'm pricing it at $2900 SHIPPED anywhere in the continental USA, OBO

Please see the link below for the FULL build thread:
It it wasnt for needing the money i would keep it. If i knew it would sell for what i really think its worth, i would be asking more. But i doubt it will even sell at this price.
After looking at the last photos a buddy got of it in flight, im really having sellers remourse.
That said, if it sells great, if not, even better! The truck is fixed, but i could use some cas to replenish the bank account.
Soo, if your interested, dont hold out waiting on a lower price, it most likely wont get any lower than this!
