|Thread: Seagull FW 190|
Thanks for your reply,
You wrote some useful tips, very helpful.
When i checked your photos, i can see there are some differences between models on the firewall and retracts. Probably our models are from different batches as you mensioned. I learned from seagull campany that mine is produced at november 2018 so maybe they improved the model as you said. But anyway i will check and try to modify the strength of firewall and retract slots.
I will ask for some other info if you have time to reply :
-Which motor did you use and how much extra weight did you add(more or less...)? i am trying to figure out the total weight inside your models cowling...
-Which servos did you use for elevator,aileron and flaps ?
Thanks again for tips,
I received my seagull fw190 recently and will start the build very soon. I will be using saito a FA325-5 cylinder raidal for this model.
I am happy to see your topic here because you already did exactly what i was thinking, modificationwise, missing ventilation on sides, short struts, weird colour scheme and some missing details...
I am planing to do all those mods, even i am thinking about changing the beige-like color with light grey or blue, checkeredboard paint on cowling, 3d print a proper, scale looking spinner (i got 3 blade props) etc...I dont have longer struts but i will find some suitable ones.
Saito FA325 is 2.4kgs weight so i am not sure if i will need any extra nose weights also i am a bit worried if the motor mount can carry this weight or should i extra strengthen the woods.
So any info/advice about the build, CG etc. will be much appreciated. If you have more photos or videos, i would really like to see them. Can you please tell me the weight of yours without gas ?
