A good Axis project.

Im researching for future projects, and instead of an allied plane, i'd like and Axis one,
probebly German. Either multi or single around speed 400, K&A do a nice looking He P.1076
and FW190, it would be really nice to find a kit of a Me109'Gustav', or a Me 410 and others.
I need something to fight for airspace with the now growing amount of British/American airframe
i have. But also to pay tribute to the exellent minds behind the designs of the Luftwaffe.

So any suggestions. whats out there that i've not found yet

Happy new year to you all.

If You'd Like "Unusual"...

A.A.Lidberg Model Plans Service Has a Blohm & Voss BV-141. It has a 28" span So it would have to be enlarged to around 38" for a 400 (I'd use a GWS geared 400 with the 3-blade for a scale look) I have these plans and can testfy of their nice workmanship!
Just a bit of reenforcement to the structure for the extra weight would be all that it needed... Bob

Another great one...

is his TA-152 at 40" span, it's just about ready to go! All it needs is a bit of enforcement for the load. Has a thin airfoil,but there is room for GWS retracts A.A, takes Paypal, and also offers a clear ready made canopy (he sends 2) ad has plastic Easter eggs that are the perfect scale spinner for this model. Here is a link
http://www.aalmps.com/
The prices are very reasonable,I think at $7.95 ea.U.S. (I'd guess around 5 to 6 lbs.Sterling for You, and he even ships overseas at reasonable rates as well...
If neither of these trip your trigger, I have a few of My "personal stock" I can throw at You... Bob

House of Balsa and K&A have FW-190 kits (the K&A kit has a very nice glass fuse and now has foam wings). Tom Hunt has HE-111 plans that I was able to drool over, if you like building from plans. Kinda depends on what you want. I built the K&A Dinah KI-46, and the K&A Heinkle, which are both very nice fliers. Good luck, let us know what you decide to go with.

If you're set on speed 400's. I could photo reduce it a bit on the "puta".

Wow, some really interesting suggestion there, Im certainly interested in the idea of that 'short kit'
of the DO335, i'll look up that menber u mentioned stefanP.

Slope nut, have you got any picture's and/or hints and tips regarding the He. P1076, as this is
certainly a bird that i would give much consideration.

And Tom, its seems that you have lots of interesting plan's of Axis types, and i certainly would like to
try building a scale model from your plan's, the He 111 sound perfect. Is it complicated, I've built an ic
sports model from a plan before and that went well, but this would be my first crack at an electric scale model!

Of course there is always the Henchel (spelling?) from HVP, but as nice as it is, i've already got expensive glass twin models, and for now the wallet won't stretch.

Tom, I've just looked at your web site, and have seen the He111. Could you tell me a little more about the construction,
I noted that your plans are CAD drawn, yes. How complex is the construction for this bird, could the wing be
made from foam? Also any picture's you have of parts of the plan or better yet the model under construction would be a great visual aid.

Thanks Stuart.

Saw a nice little Stuka here a while ago

It's a Gillow's kit so probably too small for s400

Stuart,

The P1076 from K&A is an easy going project. I had mine built in no time at all, and it is really a great flying plane. Ken suggests a cobalt 05 motor, but with the wing loading at that weight I wasnt too sure about it. My airframe without the battery weighed in at 11 ounces, so a Mega 7 turn motor and 8x1100NiMH with an 8x6 prop would do well in it.


Good luck.

Greg

Stuart,
If you should be interested in an axis multi-engined seaplane, you might want to consider this one from Laddie Mikulasko featured in Flying Models August 1999. Potez Cams 161.

I already have the plans on order. 6 Speed 400's.

Stuart,

The model was designed as a "sport scale" model, as such some things are certainly simpler. The fuselage is sectioned off into "ruled" surfaces. (single surface curvature) so the entire fuslage can be sheeted, and not planked. The nose is up to you though, I have not made any Vac-molds for it yet. The Tails are built up "slab". The wing is traditional two spar type, partially sheeted. The nacelles are the CASA Merlin nacelles rather than the original DB.

I have sold quite a few sets, but I have not seen any up and coming or finished yet from any that have bought them.

I supose the wing could be made from foam cores.

The reason they are in my "early" release plan section at discount prices is because I have not even started one yet.

Regards
Tom
