    Will it go on okay over the monokote covering?

    RE: TF FW190 GIANT ARF

    It did. I let it sit for a week before applying the lustracote. I have many flights on here now and she looks just as good as the day I painted her.. A little dirtier though (luv natural weathering)

    I'll do the exact same thing to this FW.

    I see Iflytailies monitoring... Good, I need a completed cockpit dash for this. I wanted to use the unpainted version but need it for another plane.. Let me get it before I miss out!

    RE: TF FW190 GIANT ARF

    I actually have one of the inzpan 1/4 panels at home which might be a bit to big. I've worked out the scale is a
    Prox 1/4.8. Perhaps their 1/5 scale kit will work

    Hi Ram,

    Did you need to scuff up the surface first and prime?

    I did hit it with a 300 grit sandpaper prior to painting.

    My Vailly FW190 had the 1/4 scale version in it. The kit was considered to be 1/4.5. I had to modify it a tad for proper fit. The wingspan was 90 inches, five inches shy of the TF version.

    Hi Chad, you going to build this one? I say build because I know you efforts would be all out if you did an ARF. It would be rally cool with electric power and electric retracts + sound!! Wallace Tharp

    Probably not Wally, too many other projects in the works and I am just not a huge fan of most German warbirds.

    It'll be nice when the plane is actually released.
    Kahloq - you already have a stable full of German planes. Do u plan on buying this one as well?

    In the process of building the esm 82.5" fw-190 D9....so probably not any time soon. Its a nice looking A version tho and I wouldnt mind it. I still have a 50cc gasser doing nothing....but not enough time to add another plane to the queue right now

    I'm going to sand her down and then repaint it. I hate these threads... The anticipation is killing me, especially since I have nothing on my bench for once...

    RE: TF FW190 GIANT ARF

    I wonder what Engine this Plane is modeled for; example: the Giant Top Flite P-40 was modeled to use the DLE55 with a JTec Wrap around Pitts Muffler, I have this plane and use the DLE and Jtec and it was a perfect fit. I can see them modeling the Plane for the DLE 55 as well, the question would be which DLE55, the newer DLE55 has rear mounted Carb and Exhaust, which is listed as being available soon, I would have to think the newer DLE would work great.

    RE: TF FW190 GIANT ARF

    Hey n8622t,

    I like your thinking. I almost spit iced tea all over my keyboard whjen I read your response............ Unfortunately a DA85 may be a bit much for the Butcher Bird even though I have seen that same motor in a T/F GS Jug. Talk about an AWESOME plane ! ! ! ! ! If I can work out a way to get one of the FW190's, I'm thinking of getting a 3W55 CS for it. A buddy of mine had one in his T/F Jug ARF and it was better than either of us expected to be.
