    Wow, nice, cheap, and compact. Did you notice how small the Fw190 is?

    Little FW190 $25,000 complete. For the price of Flugwerk's 190(535,000 Euro incomplete), I could buy a whole squadron!

    Well how about a replica of the Me163 komet, it could complete your German plane collection in your barn LOL. Must be a funny thing to see besides a Fw190, Me 262 and the others

    Purchased a set of Corsair plans back in the 70's. Basic construction is a wood box fuselage with foam contouring and then glassed. Planes were heavy, very high wing loading, Landing speed around 70 mph, small cockpits, and engines over heated all the time. Not many built. Company changed hands a few times. One owner die in a crash due to aileron flutter when test flying the P-51.
    Novel idea, poor designs, and little market. Still have the plans ... built a Pietenpol AirCamper instead.

    <span class="ev_code_PINK">P.S. Do not go by the published flight spec's posted, planes performance were a lot less. Pick another design. Many figthers rep's out there and better IMO.</span>
