I noticed they just moved the delivery date to mid September. Typical..........
If I get one of these planes it will be next year when they are in full supply.

The FW 190 a nice change, now they need to follow with the release of a GS ARF 'Zero' or a 'Spit', maybe next year?

Just saw Tower list Robart electric retracts for FW-190. Ship date did move to Sept., guess we will have to wait to see if they move it out again.

Just for the heck of it , I called Tower Product Support and they told me that they have no specs. yet for the TF FW-190, but will put them on the web site as soon as they are released from Topflite. This leads me to believe they are stalling and a mid Sept. release date is to soon . I thought I read that the new giant Corsair arf took 6 months, to release. SO, it looks like a watchful eye from everyone to see when info is released.

Manfred, that would be a lot of bashing cuz all those are A5 or later (the top view might be an A4). However one does it, it's a nice plane!

This plane will be sucked up like from a dry sponge.

I wonder what happened at Top Flite? A new boss or something?

If I don't get this arf then I will probably never get one as it appears to come as close as any ever have towards persuading me. I gotta admit, it's REAL tempting to dump a bunch of gear I already have on hand into the thing, bash it into an A5 and paint it into another JG54 scheme. Looks like the OS BGX and CJM gear sitting on the shelf might work so well in there that I flip the 'on' switch as the cost would be minimal for such an endeavor.

It is the same color scheme as my Flyzone foamie. I notice the lack of the swastika also on all the German ARFs. I did do all the weathering to it as to not look like all the others. I think mine needs a big brother
I like the lack of swastika's for those that don't want to upset anyone down at the field. Maybe the should include sticker or decals in the box for those that want them. The easy non upsetting thing to do is just toss another iron cross on the tail.

ya boys you know me im a sucker for a fw190. got mine on order. ok well 2 of them. i will put one right on the flight line and strip glass and convert the second one to an a 8. Ill make a couple molds for hatches and a new gun hood. Its a topflite you know it will fly nice.

I got tired of tracking down my documentation and just made a web site... maybe it will help some own else out aswell. im not done with it yet but you know how that goes

I assume are talking about the swastika
If I build a scale plane it will have the correct markings

if it hurts someone's feelings
they dont have to look

I have built many different nations planes
all have the correct markings
no one has ever said anything to anybody i have ever heard of
and if they did I am a big boy i can take a question about my planes very easily


guess I am not in the politically correct groupand i dont really care

I build SCALE models
