Fieseler Fi-167 – Plastic model
The first thing I need to do is to verify that the 3-views I have are accurate, and that the plastic model I got is too.
Since the 3-views I have are less than stellar, I probably won’t be able to do any lofting of the fuselage formers based on them. Instead, I hope the plastic model corresponds well with the pictures of the actual aircraft, so I can take measurements off of that.
To see if the plastic model is to scale, I printed out the photo of the real aircraft, and placed the plastic parts on top of it.
It fits to a T (with the exception of the tail wheel). Very impressive work by the Czechs. It is quite clear that the plastic model is the way to go, compared to the 3-views. I’m one very happy camper.
