It maby small but I am sure 1400mm will follow along

We will make sure that it is as real as it gets, both in performance and looks.

Any guesses as to what it will be?"

1400mm I'm on board, 980mm not so much.

Kudos to FMS for offering us the Tony and P-39, two fantastic looking airframes.

I have the same thought as well. 980mm madness have to stop and start to produce back those 1400mm!! If FMS really do listening to us

I am in for the P-40B and the P-39. I will wait and see on the Tony as I have too many planes on order at the moment. (G4M Betty, Ki-46 III Dinah)

Nice to see FMS is coming out with some warbirds that the other brands don't have the balls to or they deem "too risky" for good sales. 2015 looks like it's gonna be a good year.. THANK YOU FMS!👏👏👏👍👍

+1 on this. I'm a fan of the Horizon birds, but will be picking up at least the P-40 and Tony, and will think about the P-39!

Alpha did a fantastic job on that paint scheme. Still a few issues we need to work out with this plane before it is ready. The silver you see above is our suggested paint scheme for FMS. We did it all up to show FMS and they loved it. We may modify it slightly. We have a couple other schemes in mind as possibilities.

Is the final model going to have split flaps or the flaps seen in the picture?

Will it be available without the flaps cut out?

I know I have absolutely no right at all to be picky after waiting this long for a gorgeous Ki-61 foamy, but after all that effort to make it beautifully scale, non-scale flaps seems kinda' meh. I'd rather have no flaps than the wrong flaps. lol.

Bob did you get the Betty and Ki-46 from the guy custom making planes from Blue Core foam? If so please let me know your thoughts on them when you build them.

hien is a take for me but my cc would have skidmarks if it were 1100 and up. At 980 I'll try to talk myself out of it.

Thanks
Alan
