The pilot reported that he landed the airplane in a right crosswind and wind gusts. He applied a right crosswind correction, flared, and touched down with the right main landing gear on the runway. When the pilot removed the right crosswind control corrections, the airplane landed hard and as the nose wheel settled onto the runway, the airplane swerved to the left. The airplane wheel barreled and the nose landing gear collapsed, resulting in substantial damage to the firewall and forward baggage compartment supports. The pilot reported no mechanical problems with the airplane.
