    Hi Mike,

    It is the spinner that comes with the FW-190, I just painted the white spiral on it.

    I am thinking about shoehorning a 100 VBT MOKI under this cowl

    RE: TF FW190 GIANT ARF

    The engine will be the last thing I install in this. With so many options to chose from, I look forward to seeing everyone's final choices so I can copy the best one..lol I personally would love to install the G-62.

    Wow, did that crash recently or has it been sitting at the bottom of the lake since WW2. It looks pretty darn good.
    It is one of the new build replicas and it crashed a few months ago. Was only under water for a few days before being salvaged.
    Ironically they were filming a tail chase scene with a Spitfire when the Wulf suffered a failure of the constant speed prop and had to ditch in the Channel. The pilot got out ok but I reckon the Spit pilot would have to be claiming a victory!

    gotta love it! JE-J chalks up another hehehe

    I got mine also but have yet to pull out the contents. I don't want to get too involved with it until I get the rest of my parts ordered two months ago... I know I'll get on it soon.

    RE: TF FW190 GIANT ARF

    Flight reports? Anyone? Lots of chatter in this forum. I have not gone through all the posts but not much on flight reports. I hope Darryll at Sierra is making retract units for the Topflite FW-190. Robarts are not my cup of tea and that comment is being quite reserved as to my true opinion of Robart comparred to Sierra gear.

    The idea of stripping all the "monocrap" covering off and finishing with glass cloth and resin is also well worth the time and effort. My last giant TF P-51 was monocote. What a dissapointment on a single hot summer day. I spent more time ironing my plane than my white shirts for business.

    Too bad they can't make a hybrid between "monocrap" and roofing shingles. At least roofing shingles lay down flat in the hot sun.
