Saw this in person at the local Hobby Train Shop. Very impressive looking and the overall scale look is very good. No landing gear or rudder control, but I'd bet it's worth every penny to piddle around with. There is a Mustang too, but it doesn't look as spot-on as the 190. Holding out for a nicely done P47 by these Park Zone folks....

I've been kicking around the idea of one of those. The problem for me is finding a flying field. At the moment I'm building a 1/16 full option Tamiya R/C Tiger I. It's a totally custom job and I've got lots of time and money invested in it. It should be done in about three more months.

20lbs. of angry metal and plastic! I'm about to change out the front plastic spare tracks with metal ones like the ones on the turrent sides and the drive tracks. These spares can actually be used for replacement. The tracks on the tank weigh 5lbs. each.

I have both the Parkzone FW190 and the P51. Both are quite fun and easy to fly. Not for beginners but given their cost it's not to difficult to get into the hobby.

I picked up the P51 for $140 and the FW190 for $145 which is the whole shooting match. Comes with everything you need to get started. I highly recommend converting to Lipos as they give you a lot more power and flying time.

The models are both great looking and I can recommend them to anyone interested.

The FW190 is a newer release and you can tell they made some slight improvments over the P51 which is a slighly older design.

I've thought about that. I put so many details into the headlamps such as the exterior wiring that I don't think it will be posible now without completly removing them. I've gone so far as to add glass for the cupola view ports,gun sight and drivers view port. It has an effects unit that allows the turrent to rotate and the gun to elevate. The gun recoils in and there is a flash unit inside the barrel of the main gun and also the machine gun. It also has a speaker unit and has full sounds. It uses a torsion bar suspension just like the real Tiger. I want to build the Pershing after I finish the Tiger so I will see about making it's headlamps operational.


This is where I started by adding custom metal spocket guides. The seams are being filled with miliput in this photo. I made sure all seams were filled and all items have a welded on appearance. It's tedious work but well worth it.

You can see some of the electronics here. It's powered by two 7.2 volt nicad packs. There are three other motors to drive the turrent.

I have both the P-51 and Fw-190. Yes, I dogfight with them with a friend. Lots of fun!

Before you run out a buy either one please read on...

I would like to let you know that there is a problem with the black plastic gear that is pressed on to the motor's metal drive shaft. It strips off of the drive shaft very easily. I do not know if an aftermarket metal gear is available. This would solve the problem.

How does the gear strip off? Prop hit while landing, landing with the motor on a little, or when flying normally. Almost went in to the ocean on the last one! All the above happened to me and my flying buddy.

In answer to the question about the third blade: no undercarriage, belly landings are not normally very kind to three blade props unless the grass is very long. Neither of these models is for beginners though, they are relatively fast, small and nuetrally stable, learn on something much slower and with built iin stability!

Do these come out of the box ready to fly? It is very important to me to get one of these and fly it for under 250 USD.

Actually all the electronics are prewired in the Tamiya kits. You simply plug them in according to the instructions. The other half of the kit builds like any other model. One good thing about building tanks is they don't break into a million pieces if you crash. I can't imagine working for months on one of those planes only to have it destroyed in a crash. If you don't want to spend too much money there are tanks made by Hen Long
in 1/16 scale. Although far from the Tamiya kits in quality they can be modified. Give it a try it's not as hard as you may think.

This is where I get all my tank goodies.

This is the WSN T-34. This is 1/16 and fully built with the radio control unit already installed. Only a few parts are required for assembly. I assembled and weathered this one for my neighbor in only 1 day. One thing about the Hen Long and WSN tanks is they have no speed control. It would not be hard to add a speed control though and there are several aftermarket parts for these kits including metal tracks. You can get the WSN T-34 and Hen Long tanks on e-Bay very cheaply. I'm thinking about getting the WSN T-34 and modding it all out.

Here is the T-34 I finished for my neighbor.
He just wanted a little weathering on it so it's all stock as the kit comes.

Lots of potential with this kit. You could turn this into a masterpiece with a little time and effort.

I purchased a FW190 r/c model and found a pair of sunglasses with an opaque covering over the lower third of each lens in the box. There was an interlock that prevented my from flying the model without the sunglasses on, too.

The model was destroyed, however, when the model clipped a butterfly in flight and it ran out of glow fuel a picosecond later.

They think of everything these days!
