    I am about to make a 1:72 scale FW-190 fantasy bi-plane that will be painted as The Red Baron. The pic below is inspiration.

    The above pic is solely for ideas. It will not have a jet engine on the bottom and it will obviously be a radial engine plane. It also will not have a lower gull wing.

    A hobby shop I know of has a bunch of 190 kits real cheap (around $4.00) because they are missing decals or a part or two. I'll be taking a picture's of what I have and what I will be doing.


    Wish me luck ;)

    VERY COOL. Looks like something out of the old game Crimson Skies.

    The hardest part will be figuring out how the second set of wings will go on.

    Looks like a better starting point would be 2 x Me 309's instead of Fw 190's. Either way, good luck!

    I was looking at several potential prospects, and I think the look of the 190 with a second set of wings painted red looked the best. But I do agree a 309 would be easier.

    I want the plane to be a radial engine aircraft which is why I chose the 190.
