Wow! I can't wait to see her fly! Not sure what the Jumo engine sounded like,but the Allison sounds good to me. Finally I'll get to see a 190 flying in the US. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

Original engines or not, it's great to see these replicas flying.

Amazing, good to see this, maybe one day with a Jumo, wasn't there talk of a Tempest in the works, that duo would be nice to see at airshows, whats next on the list for rare warbirds, Me410?

Awesome! Looks great and ready to go. I'm impressed that they managed to maintain the exhaust stubs at the bottom rather than top like a normal Allison. Are they ducting them to the bottom to maintain the outward appearance or is the engine mounted differently?

I wonder why they painted the propeller blade edges white?

Because walking through a prop is a crappy way to end your day.

Yes I know why they did in on other aircraft, but the Focke Wulf didn't have these historically. Neither do the flyable Messerschmitts and Hispanos. The spiral is supposed to be a substitute for them as far as I know.

Having not followed this marvelous development.

Have to express I am delighted to see my first ever model kit flying.

Would love to see these "New builds". Painted in authentic colours though?

And? Is the wingspan exact?

Darn! Why should I gripe. It's a flying D-9 http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

- Being chopped to bits in an historically accurate fashion is still a bad way to end your day...

- Props are expensive!

- Insurance is very expensive!

The spiral was supposed to throw off bomber gunners. If this worked or not is something else http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

It's a pretty lousy way to start it too.

I insist. Those stripes shouldn't be there. I also heard the story that it threw off the gunner's aim, but I read somewhere that it was to attract attention to the fact that the propeller is turning.
