Quote: "The Focke Wulf FW-190 is one of the most famous German fighters of WWII. The Pilot kit represents a FW-190A which has a BMW 801 fourteen cylinder air cooled radial engine. The kit features: snap lock construction; beautiful die-cut and hand machined balsa and plywood parts; vacuum formed plastic cowl, dummy spinner and clear canopy; scale colour decals; instrument panel; full size plans and illustrated construction guide."
Quote: "Construction of the fuselage, wing and tail surfaces is easily accomplished. The fuselage framework can be accurately by insetting the longitudinal fuselage members and bulkheads into the notches in the plywood pieces. Use your favorite epoxy glue to adhere the members individually as you assemble the component parts. The wing and stab are similarly constructed using the plan as full size plan. Install the radio system as indicated on the full size fuselage drawings and the instructions provided with your radio.
(1). Construct the front fuselage frame. First, double the firewall with F-2 and F-3. Glue two F-1s into the slots in the firewall and bulkhead F-4 with epoxy. Glue F-5 onto the front of F4 s and then push and epoxy the engine mounts F-6 and F-7 into the holes in F-4, F-5 and firewall. Glue ply reinforcement F-8 to the top and bottom of engine mount. Glue two F-9s to the sides of front frame. Sandwich two bulkheads F-10 and F-11 between the F-9s.
(2) Glue F-13 to the insides of sidepanels F-12s. Then glue F-12s on to both side of front fuselage frame. Push and glue bulkheads F-14 through F-17 into the notches in the sidepanel F-12 and F-13. Glue tail piece F-18 between the ends of two side panels.
(3) Cut the 1/8 x 1/4 in balsa stringers to the proper length and then put into the notches in each bulkheads and glue them.
(4) Glue F-19 on to the top of fuselage frame. Cut the excess parts of F-19 flush with the contour of bulkheads F-14 and F-15. Plank top sides of fuselage with 3/32 in balsa sheets. Sand the top edges of 2mm balsa sheets blush with bulkheads. Plank top of front fuselage with 3/32 balsa sheets as shown in the plan.
(5) Glue F-20 into the notches in the rear fuselage.
(6) Plank bottom of fuselage with 2 mm balsa sheets.
(7) Glue F-21 and F-22 onto the rear fuselage.
(8) At first, glue S-2 on the center of TE of H Stab S-1 then glue on S-2. Second, glue S-4s and S-5s on both ends of TE. Third, glue LE S-6s then construct ribs which are cut from 1/8 x 1/4 balsa stock. Fourth, construct the elevators. Glue S-8s on the proper place of S-7s then joint them together with the elevator joint..."

* 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.
