a peek at the new Tony Nijhuis design - 2/8/11
We had Tony Nijhuis' new FW-190 in the studio for a shoot last week and thought we'd share a few pics with you. This 60" span model was the type chosen from this year's 'Pick a Plane' forum vote and is for electric power although an i.c. conversion should be perfectly possible. As you can see, Tony has captured the lines and personality of the full size machine superbly well - indeed better than any FW-190 we've seen for a long time.
As regards retracts, the good news is that he's used the E-flite electric, metal frame, 1.20-size units. Better still, they fit a treat uncut and straight from the box. Pop on the axles and you're done.
The plan and accompanying article are in RCM&E's Special Issue that goes in sale 23rd September.
