Last email with Pat@towerhobbies said the wing panels are inbound( ocean freight ?) and will ship to all purchased from Tower. That was about 3 weeks ago.

Notice to Owners of Phoenix Models K8B 6000mm Sailplane ARF

If you purchased a K8B 6000mm Sailplane ARF (PMMA1580) from Tower Hobbies or a Great Planes authorized dealer, the replacement inboard wing sets have been received at our Champaign, IL facility and have passed QC. We anticipate shipping these out to the Tower customers and Great Planes Dealers early next week via UPS Ground.

We thank everyone for their patience while we worked with Phoenix Models to bring this problem to a successful resolution.

Happy Thanksgiving and good soaring,

Bill,

Thank you for all the work you have done for us. Is there a way to upgrade to 2-day air. If the wings are packed like the original kit box(thin carton material with no protective padding from Phoenix), it will not survive the 5-6 days road trip to California. Is this being shipped out of Reno?

Just looked at my email and there was a notice that my order from Tower shipped....I thought," I didn't order anything?" Read it further and it stated it was for replacement wing set!!!!! Ya! So now it's up to Brown to see if they can screw it up!
