While building my new Heinkel 219 I realized that I had missed to put the "Nacelle former 7" in V1.0 of the plans. I will incorporate it together with some small corrections into Version 1.1 of the plans, which will come in the next days. Until then let me just attach the intermediate update with the missing nacelle former to this post.
And more updates… I have added 3D printed end cones to the nacelles…

... and spinners

I was a bit worried what those spinners would do when rotated 10.000 times per minute, but it seems they are strong enough, at least for 3S. Next time I will whirl them around with 4S.

Thanks Rasterize, great to get such positive feedback. Would be an honor to get a skin design for my Heinkel. I have already thought about adding the antenna for static display, just struggling a bit with how to design it. 3D printed seems a bit too fragile.I built an HE-219 plastic model as a boy over 45 years ago. This brings back some great memories. Thank you Bavarian_RC! Now I can build and fly one! Excellent build guide and 3D parts selection by he way. Overall very professional. Definitely on my list to create skins for! Love the WS by the way. Should have a nice presence in the air. Anyone come up with a good antenna array for the nose? 3D printed perhaps? I'd like to have two noses. One for display one for flight.
Actually it was part of my strategy. My first own design (Noratlas) was completely boxy. For the second one (Heinkel 219) I wanted to push my limits one step further, but at least keep the fuselage simple. The next design should be close to Master Series. One day I‘ll come back and upgrade the Heinkel fuselage... I promise 😜Those nacelles and especially the fillets off the back of the wing look amazing. It's a shame the rest of the fuselage is still so boxy, makes them look a little out of place.
