Dear Friends and Customers,

We have a new product getting ready to release: GWS-40. Many of you have more stories to tell about this airplane or AVG. GWS-40, with unmistakable & legendary Tiger Shark mount, is just like an old friend back from the past. Many flyers would love to have this airplane.

Great news and great timing. I have just finished sorting out my flapped AT-6 Harvard and I was looking around for my next project.

Should that weight be 20 to 25 oz.?

Waterslide decals! Wish you had started this with the FW190. ;)

#6 jamesdr Jun 20, 2007 11:32 PM

Another one for my fleet!

There is no such thing as too many planes, just not enough time!

I for one am a happy camper! Can't wait to see one fly here in the USA, I wonder if the Earlybird shipping will cost as much as the plane itself? (as in the past)

The GWS-40 is virtually identical size to the GWS-190, but the specs you gave below say the GWS 40 weighs almost a full pound MORE???? Tell me it isn't so! If that's correct, when is the smaller version coming out?!

#9 Blaze.45 Jun 21, 2007 02:12 AM

Wow, you know... At this rate before I know it, it'll be ONLY GWS planes in my hangar. :eek:

Nice job Mr. Lin and GWS Staff! I think I'm in for this EB also.

I think this is a typo.The GWS site says 650-750g which sounds right.Otherwise this bird would weigh the same or more than the P38 :confused: :o

#11 kensp Jun 21, 2007 05:11 AM

The GWS web site states "Flying Weight:650~750g (22.9~26.5oz)". Based on the weight of the GWS-190 and GWS AT-6 I would think that the web sites weight is the correct one.

I'd believe that my colleague applied the AUW of GWS-15 instead, and Ray was informed of the wrong AUW. I'll tell him to correct this AUW tomorrow morning Taiwan time.

I'm afraid that the smaller GWS P-40 has been suspended on boss plan.


#13 Hangar Rat Jun 21, 2007 08:58 AM

Hmmm... I guess I'll have to build this one faster than i built the AT-6! Well done GWS - Thanks


#14 RAY GWS Jun 21, 2007 09:52 AM

Dear all,

Yes, you are correct. Thanks for letting me know. I did correct the info.

I hope you all will like this GWS-40.

As per your requested:

3 different version waterslide decal with the look you like --- you got them all.
3 blade prop & spinner.

I was also told by GWS Tommy that this GWS-40 is the best choice for aerobatic flyers who love P40. He said that he has tried and tested many P40s. This is the best best one that he tested.

Ray, Its great news but I especially want to say that I'm pleased about the decals. I think I said in the forum that I rated the (waterslide) AT-6 decals 10/10 for quality but 0/10 for content. It really looks like GWS have listened because from what I can see of your pics the content of this decal set looks like close to 10/10 on content too. Thank you.

And ............. :D :D :D ....................just so I can be the first to ask - what's going to be the next real (meaning prop) warbird? For single engine may I suggest that you limit your choice to Hurricane, Typhoon, Fury (September Fury would be great), MiG3 or either a Tony or a Frank from Japan. The American market may be the biggest but they've now got P-40, P-38, P-51 and F4U. Even Germany has 190, 109 and 262 (and forgive me for mentioning it but I seem to recollect they came somewhere short of first in the war - that's a JOKE guys OK? ;) :D ) while the Brits have only got the Spit, the Japanese have only got the Zero and the Russians have big fat zippo.
