    Thermal Barrier Coatings

    I wonder the same thing... I race and it definitely helps get that last bit of power out of car engines, and I would think it would be even more beneficial here. I'd do moly skirts, and ceramic on the piston crowns, combustion chamber and valve faces. The more heat goes out the exhaust (more...

    For Sale W.A.R. FW190 plans.

    Planset all boxed up. Bought the plans, then bought a project which also had plans. I think the set is all complete, but not 100% sure. All the big prints are there for sure, just not 100% on a few of the 11x17 sheets. Make me an offer. email to my username

    WAR Aircraft replicas

    Thanks for the feedback.. I had a WAR 190, and it was both too small, and I decided I hate composites... if you haven't seen it, google Terry Kronk's RV built style 190... that's what I'm talking about.... a metal replica 190 or 109 with 2nd seat capability would have my money.... Something...

    85 lbs thrust from 14hp

    I saw an ultralight fly with a jet apu at air venture.. was hilarious to see a kite flying by slowly sounding like a jet taking off lol.

    WAR Aircraft replicas

    You are the first guy on here in a long time who is more than a dreamer... Best of luck to you! Given the construction methods (kind of like Baslees WWI planes) I assume not stressed for any aero? I'd love a all metal FW190 in around 75% scale but too chicken to try to design it myself.... Would...

    Radial engine

    George, I looked at HCI when I had my Fw years ago (I stopped by your place 10 years ago maybe?), and saw it at sun & fun, but though an interesting concept, I wouldn't fly behind one. I looked into making my own using later model BMW motorcycle pistons, cylinders and heads which I like a LOT...

    WAR Aircraft replicas

    Holtzy, if you are still planning to build, I have a new in box (uncut) spinner for the WAR FW190. I'll throw up up on ebay and the usual places in a few weeks, but if interested, ping me.

    Focke Wulf 190 80% Scale

    The cheaper and more realistic it looks, the better the sales potential... Hurry up so I can build one :)

    WAR Aircraft replicas

    Brian, looks like a Rare Bear in the works! - Looks Great! Holtzy, its not making a rv8 look like something else, its using its design and construction methods, applied to a new shape to avoid most of the reengineering... Check out Terry Kronks Fw190 - looks fantastic and is how he did it.

    Luftwaffe Sticks

    3d print it, clean it up, then use as mold and cast in aluminum.... There's some out there already that have done this, but not commercially available

    Routing Out All Your Aluminum Ribs *Without* Welding Them Together

    ....Or you could look up the appropriate feed rate and rpm to cut with... My guess is the router speed is way too high for the federate you are running... there are plenty of calculators for that sort of thing..

    European Aircraft Manufacturer Willing to Build a New Warbird Replica (80 to 90%)

    is that a Harmon rocket, F1 rocket? I can't keep all those things straight! I like the idea of that with a fastback turtledeck.. Throw in some retracts and a better looking tail, and I could get over not having a Fw190 I guess... Never gonna spend $300k for a replica.. simply no business case...

    WAR Aircraft replicas

    Well, I'm not using the WAR design, or "scaling down" from the real thing either. Its more like design a sport plane from a clean sheet, that superficially looks like the 190. I'll use the Rv8 as my starting point and see what I come up with.
