For Sale
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!)

- Solartex Covered, rib stitched and pinking tape control surfaces

- Painted in RLM specifc (76/81/82) Warbird Colors paint

- Sierra Precision FW-190 main retracts and retracting tailwheel

- Sierra Precision Scale accurate FW-190 main and tail wheels

- Sist FW-190 spinner with functional fan

- spare Sist FW-190 spinner cut for 3 bladed "Solo" Prop (solo prop not included)

- Functional Engine cooling flaps with custom fabricated and molded cooling ducts

- Custom "under the gun hood" detailing and Functional opening Gun hood

- Fully concealed cowling mounts

- Functional Remotely Operated opening/closing canopy

- Fighter-Aces UK ETC-501 bomb rack with custom designed Tank release with HS-81 servo

- Fighter-Aces UK Drop Tank

- Fighter-Aces UK canopy mount antenna fairing

- BBI Luftwaffe pilot modified for lighter weight

- Inzpan Full-Cockpit

- JR 8411 servo on elevator (one)

- JR ST126MG servo's on flaps (two)

- JR 3421 servo's on the ailerons (two)

- Hitec HS-5645MG on rudder

- Hitec HS-81 on throttle, Gear valve, canopy actuation and Drop tank

- JR R-921 DSM2 receiver

- Integrated Spektrum "flight-log"

- Powerbox switch, Flight log, filler valve and pressure gauge all concealed under an operational (and scale) access hatch.

- Powerbox "smart" switch

- BVM Hi-flow retract valve

- BVM Air tank filler valve

- Festo Air Pressure Gauge

-DLE 55 engine (brand new, never run)



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
Come and pick it up and i'll give you a $500 discount!
payment via paypal, the buyer is responsible for the 3% paypal fee

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.

Thanks guys!

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!
