FW 190 (oz1257)
About this Plan
Focke-Wulf 190. Free flight scale rubber power German fighter.
Update 15/02/2018: Added paint colour scheme and box art pic, thanks to NicholasTucker.
Dear Mary, FW 190 oz1257 by Albert Hatfull (18" span version). I noticed that for some of the last KK Flying Scale series to be marketed, c.1975, KK added a paint scheme and a new box to some of their WW2 planes.
The box art is by a certain Millington and the paint-scheme by T. Colbourne. I suppose KK were trying to compete with the more recent popular static plastic models: Britfix, Revel etc. I think they were. Kind regards Nicholas
Supplementary file notes
Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

ScaleType: This (oz1257) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.
If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.
ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Focke-Wulf_Fw_190
Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.
Do you have a photo you'd like to submit for this page? Then email firstname.lastname@example.org
User commentsHere are two photos of the Keil Kraft FW 190 I built in the 1980s for Round The Pole flying [more pics 003, 004]. The KK, Veron, Comet, Guillows etc small rubber scale models were perfect for conversion to RTP.

Dear Mary - another lock down build [pics 006-008]. I substituted depron for the tail feather sheet surfaces in the FW plan, also 'planked-in' the front end as you can see. I built two of the FW's in my early teens (1968-1970?)... Kind Regards,

* Credit field
The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.
This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
