n8622t,

http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_11161542/tm.htm

might be why your getting no response. There is another even larger thread in scale I believe.

btw....that is one big mean looking fish there.

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.

I believe it's going to be another top rated Arf ....I have the TF 47, 40, and Corsair giant scales and they all look great and fly very well. This 190 will be a great addition

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!

Ya Glazier there are two other threads on this bird so its going to be a real popular model...I have the arf on order as well as the Robart electric retracts. This is going to be a huge group build no matter which thread you follow...gonna be a lot of fun.

Great info Boltman...at least the aircraft wasn't totally destroyed and hopefully restored to flying condition.

agreed! If I didnt have a lein/holman 190A8, I would probably have to have one as well. Have you picked a scheme?

It'll be nice when the plane is actually released.

I have the same order placed as well

Haven't decided whether to strip it down and glass it or just add some extra paint to the film and then clear coat it, any thoughts?? In the past have used tamiya and then a lusterkote Matt clear.

Hey Guy's

I wonder if they are going to offer the plane in an ARC version like they did the Jug? It certainly would save allot of us quite a bit of time stripping the covering off the ARF. Here is my choice for the new scheme.

You're paying for that covering so why not put it to use. I'm sure, like many other giant arfs from Topflite, this too will later be available as a RTC. I'll paint this one and later buy the arc and make it more unique..

Here is my ESM Dora. I used Lowes, Valspar latex indoor/outdoor flat paint specially mixed to match and fuel proofed it with lustracote clear flat. Another option if you have the cash is; Warbird colors paints.
