British F4B Scale Nationals 2005

August - RAF Barkston Heath

This is my nine year old FW190 A-3 still powered by my Merco 49 and weighing 5.5 lbs. It is now controlled by a Bek4 unit (electronic) and has pneumatic retracts.

I spent a lot of time preparing it for the static judges and in the two weeks before the Nats I made approximately 16 flights to ensure the engine setting and other functions were perfect.

This is the second time it's been brought out of retirement, maybe this time it stays retired ?
