Folks - let not turn this into a "I wanna <fill in the blank> model 'cuz it would be sooo kool" thread. GWS need help and they are ASKING US for input. Thanks Roger for getting this going.

Mr Lin and Staff. Stay true to your roots. My two cents... improve your supply line. When I started into the hobby five years ago, I could walk into almost any hobby shop and touch a GWS model. Nothing like opening the box on the counter and having folks and strangers peering in and commenting on the model. Yeah - the kits are available on line but that is so impersonal. Folks get kits they can touch and because GWS kits are reasonably prices, an impulse purchase is (was) not unusual. There was a lot of finger pointing all about GWS USA. I don't know all the political issues but to me, the best way to get back going is to sell kits. To sell kits, you have to get them out to the consumer. Build or re-build the personal relationship to the local hobby shops and we will buy your products.

Jim
