I e-mailed the current owner to see if he was willing to copy the drawings. I never got a reply.Also located this aircraft for sale on Barnstormers .com. This aircraft was used in a documentary about the FW190 on the history channel. Uses a lycoming six cylinder for power. He also stated that the buyer would get the complete set of drawings with the plane. Maybe he can be persuaded to sell copies of those as well?
F-82Man:The FW-190 truly was a great aircraft, and a formidable opponent, and the replica video is very informative. While talking to Tony Pileggi, he indicated the flight characteristics for warbird replicas would be very similar in a scale of 80% and larger. If that is the case, why are there so many smaller scale warbirds on the market? Wouldn't it make sense to increase the scale for handling qualities? Are there engines that can produce the needed power at that scale, or is that the main reason for the smaller scale? How about an 85 to 90% scale P-40, P-47, P-51, etc?? Just something to think about....Don
Hi Martin and welcome,Hi guys,
I have just joined this group, and noticed that there has been a number of unanswered queries regarding the Terry Kronk FW-190.
I have the pleasure of working with both Terry and side-kick Bryce, who between the two of them, built the FW from scratch ( no plans, no kit) in around 18 months.
It is powered by a 400 hp M-14p radial, with gas-powered machine guns and a smoke system. It flies very well, and here is a link to a video I took a while back, where Terry gives it a nice workout....
Sounds like a rhetoric question , please post more if you can, pics, vids.I have video and pics of all these a/c if anyone is interested.
Martin, welcome to the site and thank you for your videos etc.my other friend with the 75% all metal F4U is running out of room and money while getting ready to move to an airpark.
