FW-190 54" Scratch Build


I've had this plane for a while, but never scanned in the picture. The plane is a Guillow's 200% based design, fully sheeted, obviously with many design changes. It has not been flown yet, as I have only flown 36" and under planes (besides SS), and figure that the more experience the better, with something like this. Powered by AXI 2826-12 outrunner, with 2 Thunder Power 3s 2100's planned, AUW about 70oz. No retracts, but steerable tailwheel.
Wing mfg has a kit exactly the same size, which I was not aware of at the time. If I had known that, they would have been a good supplier for individual parts. I got my cowl for $5 at a HS which had a bunch on red tag sale. I think it was originally for a Sukhoi. I shortened it by cutting off the vents on the rear part of it, which then fit perfectly. I heard of someone on RCU planning on doing on of these, but have never seen one as of yet.

Thank you. I like your's too, and many other of your designs. Thought about converting your 262 to ducted fan.

I would suggest downsizing it then, using two GWS fans, lipo and Depron...it would make a cute indoor bird and thanks too.
