Don't think that will fit. The plug caps being straight out, (for some stupid reason) make this thing over 11" wide. Unless you do not mind cutting holes in the cowl to clear them.

There are already three forums on this bird on site. I'd check them out, they're pretty informative.

Thanks for the feedback vertical grimmace. I am trying to get my hands on the dimensions of the Topflite FW-190 cowl. I suspect you are right and the spark plug caps will stick out!

I think that info is in one of the other threads. This topic was brought up. I know it will not fit in a D model of this scale. Although the A model has a larger diameter.

Yep, thanks, I just read the other threads and it seems that the DLE 60 is too wide.

Ramstein44, thanks for bringing the other threads to my attention!

It is a shame that they did not angle the plugs back. Maybe if they would have used the jugs off of the new 35cc. They got those 2 engines right. The 55 RE and 35RE. Low profile is best. Especially for scale applications.

You may want to look at a JC 60
