    another major project is the ditched Focke Wulf (Flugwerk) Fw190A8) former F-AZZJ. The team is turning into the final lap, the checkered flag could be seen. Tons of work with the electrical system. The team engaged John, who was also responsible for the Paul Allen one-nine-o to do the wirings following the original plans and using as much factory-new wartime parts as he can get.







    beautiful one , isn't it ?

                    Is it a EKW C-36? - seen here https://www.facebook.com/19669940037...type=3&theater

                    Not Schlepp - engine looks to be a V-12 of some flavour...

                      #964 ..... well, its a EKW C-36 airframe out of the Londrino auction. Spare fuse and wings. The private owner asked the shop to build up that airframe for "daily use" cause his original Hispano powered C-3603 is too rare for daily fun-flights. So the shop will build up a "Hot Rod" C-36 with Merlin engine and modern avionics for daily and speedy fun flights ...... pretty cool project, not easy to handle. There is a very intensive and close communication to the authorities to get this conversion "legal" for German register

                          Lets talk about my personal highlight-project in the shop. "My" Lady in Red. Its really a huge and longtime project. The Hawker SeaFury D-CACE with original Bristol Centaurus engine. A complete "frame off" restoration. Tons of work, but such a beauty !!! Responsible for that ultimative restoration is Felix Ohlhoff. He is the man for those British aircraft ..... and yes, they are driving him mad sometimes :lol:

                          The big points are done, but a billion of little things are taking the speed out of that project. Its hard to find spare parts, so lot of parts must be rebuild from "scratch". Some telephone calls worldwide, detail pictures from other originals and so one. paperwork is very complicated, detail drawings more than one time not available. Yes, its a very special job, but Felix loves that bird - of course he wouldn't say it loud to other people :P

                                  An old "friend" was also in the shop to get the annual ..... the "famous" India-India. One of the first aircraft under ownership of MeierMotors. Sold to France years ago, comes back every year for maintenance and of course the annual. I love that bird really .....

                                        And I shall readily admit that the Centaurus powered Fury in its old DLB colors is the one I'd really like to see fly at present. Same with the Belgian Fury in Iraqi colors.

                                          Thank you so very much for the update! Always a pleasure seeing the work going on there, and you taking the time to post for us.

                                          Are they going to put the periscope equipment etc back on the Sea Fury? That would REALLY finish her off...she looks amazing
