RE: Looking for Engine Suggestions for Royal F8F Bearcat

Thanks for your suggestions guys. I’m tempted to use either the RCV90 or 120 engine primarily because their design fits nicely within the cowl and supposedly has enough torque to spin a 4-blade...

RE: Best engine for a Platt Spitfire?

Al and f4U5, thanks for your input. I was leaning towards going with the Moki 1.8 since I have never used a gas engine in any off my planes. I’ve been reluctant to go with gassers previously...

RE: Holman or Reines FW190A kit?

JG that is one great looking FW. What engine do you have installed in it and how much did your plane end up weighing? Did you have to put any extra weight in the nose? Likewise, what retracts did you...

RE: Holman or Reines FW190A kit?

RE: Fw190A8

JG, earlier you mentioned that you had problems with the Shindin retracts and had to remove part of the gear doors in order for them to lock. What did you do to resolve the problem and have you been...

RE: Yellow Aircraft prices
