Hey Noah,

You're a funny Guy...... So when are you going to join the Dark Side? Here's another picture of my friends' T/F FW190. It was stripped, glassed and painted.

Take care,
David

Hey David.

I used to fly a Meister 109, but it was never very fun (big floater, and I didn't do much if any detailing to scale it out), so I sold it. On top of that, last year before I moved away I saw my old friend in Iowa (Mike, aka Zipnz) complete and fly his 1/3 scale 109, I thought what's the point... nothing beats that. So, I never really considered building another Luftwaffe model.

But now that Mike has now made a plug and mold... I might have to grovel and whine until he sells me one of his 1/3 fuselages!

Mike are you out there and listening???

I also like the Horton that Invertmast has designed and constructed. That, too, is really special. Good job Invert! I also really like OVSS Boss' D9.

Who knows, I may eventually be compelled to return to the dark side...

Anyway, beautiful planes here, guys. Keep the pictures and reports coming.

Noah

Yeah Noah,

I really like Marc's D9 too and that Horton is nothing short of incredible. I just wish I had the building skills like you and the rest of the guys in this thread.

I always thought the A8 was my favorite Butcher Bird until I got a good look at a full scale Dora. Even though the D9 in the picture is partly reproduced, it is an INCREDIBLE aircraft. Also, it is not flight worthy at this time, but it will eventually be sent back to the "Father Land" for a complete restoration and to make it flight ready again. There is also an original Jumo that has been overhauled waiting for this Dora too. I cannot wait to see this plane flying again.

Take care,

David

Here is my 113" Vailly FW-190A-8
Currently building a new wing do to my failure to retract the gear when making a forced hot landing.
The new wing should be several pounds lighter also.

Next flight should be sometime in August.

That prop looks amazing on the nose of you Vailly. I wonder why someone hasn't made one for smaller FW190's " affordable".

Vailly Aviation Fw-190 A4 over Lake Fiskum Eastern Holiday;

The pilot is clearly concentrating on some target. Is it a P-47 ?

Hey Noah,
I've been slowly working on the big 109 but have not posted any progress. I have removed the top skins on the original wings, removed the retract mounting structure and modified it for a wing joiner tube. After i get the new 109 flying my plan is to cut a foam core wing to try to get some more weight out and make building faster.

Here is a pic of the new fuse mounted retract i am working on. It is not finished but the actuation is working good. In the pic you can see my old school chicken scratchings on paper that i used to get my geometry and dimensions calculated.

I was at chino a few weeks ago and got a real close look of their lake find 109e from russia. Ive only seen pics of this plane and i could not believe how small this plane really is and it was nice to take close up shots of areas in interest.

You know Noah, more than likely you will end up with a big 109 like mine but you probably should finish up that ZP-51 first.

mike

Oh no !!!! Don't say that in public! Electric? I will be expelled from Flugabteilung Norwegen forever !

Well, seriously, I am guilty of one project that was meant to be electric, but that was a Me 262. I never had a Platt 190, although they are very nice kits.

It halted in its tracks when both extremely expensive controllers just...burned up. [:'(]

But I still have it, waiting for the "perfect engine solution". It is a Bauer Modelle scale 1/6. ( A german kit, no longer existing)

With 11 blade rotors, I bet it was pushing some amps!!!! I have an airworld me-262 still unfinished. Ive got 90mm wemo's with arc 36-75-1's on 8s. These will require at least 120 amp esc's

Kahloq, you seem to have a lot of experience regarding electric motors.

But, I think such things costs too much still. Controllers, motor, fan, batteries. It will have to wait....

The escs burned up immediately when I connected them. But thats a long time ago, don't want to think about that anymore.

Trying to surpress the memory of it. hehe. Not everything one tries to accomplish is a success.

Here is another guy with the same kit; The nacelles seems better scale than Airworld.
