Hey guys - i have the kit but cannot see any evidence of a bulged tail boom on the many pics available - i think it looks more straight, is this neccesary to do this?

Hi Adam

The curve on the full-sized booms is subtle, but it does show in shots from above and below. Is it necessary to add it? Like any similar correction, that's a purely subjectve matter that only the individual modeller can decide; as you can see from the builds we've had on Aeroscale, GWH's Fw 189 still looks great straight from the box.

All the best
