Mike it looks great!
I have one also but it has been one of those planes that fights me all the way so its going to have to fly without the spinner before I put anymore time or $$$ into it. but yours makes me want to get it out again

Thanks guys for the thumbs up
Dave yes the legs are longer, I moved the retracts closer to the fuselage, the longer legs and bigger wheels gives just over 50mm- 2'' more in length

I have the center of gravity at 108mm with the spinner. will have to check again without the cone. it has flown great when it flys just very cantankerous between the car and the flight line.

Got around to pulling the pilot out and giving him a coat of paint, he comes more or less unpainted

Hey Guys,
I have not been on here in a while.
I do have canopies available for this plane. Just pull a couple this afternoon.

Smile Ty makes GREAT stuff!

Hi Ty! Long time, no see, sir! I don't mean to high-jack this thread, but everybody should know how wonderful your products really are! I'm starting work on my ESM JU-87B Stuka, now that I'm "retired!" Would you happen to have any parts for it, other than your FANTASTIC cockpit kit and canopies that I already have? Your parts are so much better than the brittle OEM arf parts (many already cracked when I got them!) that came with the plane! I'm looking for a 4 1/2 inch 3-blade spinner, and some shock-absorbing struts, if you (or any of our friends!) might know where I can find them! Sorry for being "off topic", but Ty's parts really are that good! Blue Skies, Blair

I have the .pdf but can't seem to get them to upload. I will keep trying, or can send them to your email.

Post pics of your build.

Well after plenty of delays and other builds sneaking in my 109 is finally on the build table.

Will post some pics of the progress as it occurs.

What servos have people used on this build so far?

Thanks

Dave

Hey Dave, I'm on a long break, I have one of these NIB and a Fokke 1/5 E4, wondering which one to start on? Got a few other big projects going as well.
