Getting there..

This will be my first 1/5 scale model which I am going to glass, detail and paint so see how it goes!!

Lot of scale detail will be added including panel lines, rivets and inspection hatches.

Bad Ass!!

Im taking my time with this one and most of it is down to research, "how to" and thinking of different mods and installations.

Im waiting for lots of parts to be delivered from everywhere, but tomorrow will have all the Sbus servos, hubs and electronics ready so decided to create a functional scale hatch in the fuse for the switch and fuel with a metal hatch using magnets for securing it.

Went for Wolverine switch in the end as I will be running HV throughout and that the switch came with 2 Dean cables as INPUTS and 2 Dean for OUTS. After changing the output cables to female futaba type connectors, noticed the Wolverine can accept a third output by soldering another set of cables for distributing power giving you 3 outputs redundancy ?

Thinking of doing this as one out will be going to Rx and the other 2 to Sbus hubs in the network.

There is a lot more work going on with the FW190 too much to write here! :lol:

Did you go for the air or electric retract option?

We supplied a customer with a package using the electric units. Saito 57T going in his

Hi Dave

I went for Robart electric retracts. They are very good but need some mods done to make them stronger and last longer ( second cam block added plus other bits ) I think is the same for pneumatic ones.

Tail wheel was a real pain to install as it didn't fit at all in the first place and needs lots of carving and cutting...

Once engine ( ring collector!! ) arrives will order that beautiful 3 blade scale Biela prop from M & R 's. ;)

Interesting - any chance of a hi res photo top down on the board itself ?
