    What are you guys doing for wheels? I am using the robart gear, prefer the sierra's, but don't want to cut into the wing to make the mod.
    I figure these will work

    OK, and where would one find such magical round shiny things? Sierra is out, he won't sell to me because he only has a few left.

    RE: TF FW190 GIANT ARF

    All of these good wheels and tires come out of Germany. I have a few sets I tend to purchase this type of stuff when I see it because they go poof and when you need them you’re out of luck. So if I were trying to find a new set I would start with someone who has links in to the German model community. The guy I would tap for such a search is http://vogelsang-aeroscale.com/warbirds.html as you can see he sells the sis t fw 190. Those wheels should be perfect.

    Why does all the good stuff come from Germany?

    All right Ramstein44! Let me know. I hope to start producing them in two weeks. I'm sculpting in the fur collar this afternoon. I think this adds new meaning to ''making fur fly''!Β*
    You are a true artist...you had your booth set up at Denver and I had no idea what was behind your pilots. I could see that they were extremely nice and of great quality but didnt know about the artistry involved...exceptional work Fly4Real

    RE: TF FW190 GIANT ARF

    Williams bros makes a perfectly suitable wheel for a very reasonable price. Add a little detail, and I think you come out way ahead of chasing down the serious scale wheels. Not worth it IMO.


    Now, I want to duplicate the cannon area in the wing of my TA 152. Anyone have a line on a plastic model of the wing cannon so I can duplicate this? I have had a hard time in my search.


    Ramm, you are headed for a daunting task with your Andersen TA 152 build. It is very gratifying, yet incredibly difficult at the same time. It seems every thing I do or accomplish, I realize I should have done it a little differently.

    It is one thing to build an ARF, another thing to build a kit, a bigger thing to build your own design, but to me the most difficult thing is to scratch build someone else's design. With conflicting info from the plans, the construction article, and the available CD, not to mention poor fitting parts. My TA 152 is going to be a wonderful plane, but a very difficult build. I hope you will get a chance to see it one day Ram.

    Hey, where is my belly pan for the Hollman!
    Vertical.. That belly pan finally got a box that will fit it but it keeps moving around the house. I looked at it again today.. No worries.. I know.. I know.. But I promise you, you'll get it before you start your build.. even if I have to drive it up to you... That doesn't mean you go start it now..lol Let me know if your friend comes locally again..

    As for the anderson. I was lucky enough to get instructions with mine and the CD. Prety detailed instructions. I always assemble the kit first to ensure propper fit then glue. This way I catch the errors. Plus I get to learn from others hardships..

    No worries, I'm sure we'll share the upper skies someday. I heard there's plenty of allied planes at your field. I look forward to shooting them down with you..lol

    RE: TF FW190 GIANT ARF

    Ram, yah, last time I flew I think I counted 4, P47 Thunderbolts. While my little Pica 190 more than holds it's own, it could use a little help. Anytime you wanna come fly with us at Love-air you are welcome. Just let me know so I can be there to meet you.
    I am still planning on a spring maiden for the TA 152. It will be for scale competition, so not just a throw around Warbird. It is going well, just not as fast as I am used to. The second one will go faster! Yes, I will build another one.

    A second one.. Awesome..

    Man.. the weather was COLD today so painting was troublesome at best. Painting even in the garage was hard and the cockpit is moving along like pond water..Soo many little details. I'm down to one piece of it a day[]

    I have the DLE 55RA on another plane. The mounting pattern is different than the side exhaust. So, you may be creating more work for yourself. I thought the rear exhaust would be ideal, but tower sells the "combo" with the side exhaust for a reason.. I think... ;-)

    So the DLE55RA in the P-40 as well might need to have the firewall redrilled due to the mounting pattern.. yes?

    I have the DLE55RA installed in mine. The firewall bolt templet took ten min to make and the fit is great. I made copies of the templet for future uses.

    Hey Ram, take that DLE55 RA muffler to your local welder and have it welded around the exhaust flange...they are falling apart and so far I have not heard of anyone getting it replace or fixed without paying for it....

    RE: TF FW190 GIANT ARF

    Well guys this thing flies great. I just completed 4 flights more flights after the remaiden from the original maiden flight crash. I replaced the cowl, gear doors, and decals on the wing. Added a little more weight to the nose and if is now perfect. 45 degree up line, roll inverted and it just keeps on going. Takeoffs and landing are beautiful main wheel roll outs. I ripped this thing around more than anything I have flown lately and was all smiles. Now get'em done and go fly, you will love it!

    So, I go by my local dealer today and he puts in a order for the plane and retracts for me as a Christmas present from my family and gives us a great deal, now the fun starts. Tower shows the plane in stock but Great Planes back orders it along with the Robart retracts. Guess I'm not getting a Christmas present again this year last year it was the E-flite F-4's that we never got hope GPA has their stuff back in stock before I get bored waiting. Maybe I should have gotten the P-47 from Hanger Nine but wait they were the people who lied to me all of last winter. Seams like we can't win trying to spend money.lol.

    Ron you just arent having any luck! I have a REALLY nice bob holman 1/5 FW-190 i'll sell ya, possibly even turn key!
