    Wow! Really nice! Do you buy them already assembled or are they kits that you build? We can help with the proper Luftwaffe markings. :lol:

    there are some you can buy called ARF (All Ready To FLY) but they are not really you still have to buy and put the radio gear in and sometimes retractable landing gear. Those that you see in pic was designed and built by the person 2 from the right in the very first pic with the FolkeWulf 190. In fact I lent him all my documentation and drawings to design the plans for that model. you can check it out at Vailly Aviation

    Les sorry to hear about Katrina eating your gear! you'll get back up flying I'm sure!

    OK Thunder Thud on the serious side, I've got a ton of questions. Are they kits or do you just buy the plans? What are they made of? What about the powerplant? Can you get retracts for them? What's the price range of the FW-190 and the 'Phoon?

    Wow! Love the Typhoon. I was wondering if you may know why the builder picked 198 Squadron for the Typhoon's markings? Was there a relative of his in 198? My Grandfather flew the Typhoon for 198... so, very excited to see this project. Thanks!
