Been busy with other projects, but have started the detailing etc.....still to fix the canopy down and do a little more on the panel lines etc ..and dull down the markings...maybe done before 2009 !! :-)

Apologies for the photo quality, the plane looks dusty :-(..looks DIRTY IRL

Looks cool!

So flying off the trolley? How about landing on it too ?

Beautiful bird. Don't smudge the markings, they look great. Satin finish looks really nice. I look forward to your flight report.

Nearly there, got all the *innards* unfortunately, including some noseweight wrapped around the front motor mount to get the 4500Ah 3 cell lipos to balance, but they do fit well, and she balances perfectly.
Guns and stencilling (anyone know anything about german ww11 luftwaffe stencilling?),to do and then as the master Dave Platt once said, "its not finished, but I'm done working on it " amen to that.

Then first flights off the trolley...we will see........this one has been fun..and I've thoroughly enjoyed getting back to basics.........so my next planned long build is the Tempest from Ron Daniels, then , for my sins, my sons bought me the E-Flite, P38 AND Sea Fury !!!!!!.......BLESS THEIR LITTLE COTTON ...SOCKS.......

Hi Henri, I have the BalsaCraft FW190 plans, ( a bit cut up, but I think they will help you !! )

I would be happy to send them to you if you like.

Let me have your postal address and I will post them this week

Cheers
