    Does anyone know of any decent sized pictures of flying Flugwerk Doras? I would like to use one for my signature, but I have been unable to find any.

    I spoke with the guys in Florida that has recived one..and that would NOT fly any time soon as it has so many snags and issues that they were pretty P.O by the work done on it..but the ordinary Fw 190 they recived they were happy with and that would fly soon.. so maybe thats why we havent seen so many of them flying yet..

    Oh no, sorry A4K, I haven't gotten around to making mine yet. You choose which one you'd like, and I'll use the other.

    Beautiful shots 4mot!

    The manufacturing efforts of the small series of Fw 190 „Shortnoses“ now draws to an end. The last year saw two FW 190 A8/N being fully assembled for trial-fit and being disassembled again, in order to be shipped to our clients in the UK and USA respectively. One of these formed the basis for a ground-up restoration of an original Fw 190 A9. The A9 was intended to be an interim-solution until the D9 would have been manufactured in quantities during the late stages of the war. The expectations were to get better performance at higher altitudes. To achieve this goal the radial was exchanged for a V-12 inline engine, the Jumo 213, hoping that lesser frontal- as well as lower cooling-drag plus better supercharger output would provide the gain in power and speed Caused by the order of a client for a D9 variant, the Flug Werk team now had the task of incorporating a suitable alternative engine to power the FW 190 D9/N. We choose the Allison V-1710 engine, which was subsequently modified and prepared through our partner company ACE-Allison, run by Bud Wheeler in Latrobe/USA. As the Allison is about 400 kg lighter than the original engine, the need for additional weight was obvious. The task was accomplished by designing and manufacturing a heavy weight engine mount, using CAD/CAM tools, providing the needed strength and high weight at the same instance ( basically a “NO NO” in aircraft construction.. ). Yet it enabled us to keep the original CG of the fighter’s longnosed variant. The prolific and talented team of Flug Werk’s own diplomated aerospace engineers and specialists in the shop, managed the task with flying colours. On top they built the complicated exhaust system, the engine cowlings and the cooling-flaps including their remote control. Even one of the highest- scoring German WWII aces - ret. Gen Günther Rall – visited us to personally sign the D9.

    Thanks for the info Roman.

    You may be correct, Gnomey, but I sure would have guessed more than that. Wont it be cool to see a D9 in the air. I don't care if it's Allison powered, I just want to see one fly.
