Question
EPO FW-190 Spare Parts

Mr Chen,

Where can we get spare parts for EPO kits? I see you can get parts from Caliber Hobby but is that EPS or EPO foam?

Hi Hack73,

The spare parts (fuselage & wings) moulded were all EPS ones. So what Caliberhobby advertised were EPS kinds, too, unless they intend to sell EPO kits seperately. There might be needs of EPO parts for some GWS birds, I'd have to keep Boss informed of this
request.

Anyone have suggestions for an alternative replacement cowl for the FW-190?

I just ordered spare EPO parts for a P-40 from caliber. They cost the same as the EPS ones plus $5. There is absolutely no mention of this on the website though. I had to email sales in order to find out how to get EPO. The sales dept. was very helpful, but they really should list the EPO parts on the site.

Here is the email that I received about EPO parts:

Hi,
You can go to this link for parts: http://www.caliberhobby.com/gws190parts.html
They are listed for EPS but for parts# GWAEO025-FAS2 and GWAEO025-FAS3, they are $5 more for EPO parts.
If you wish to order the EPO parts, we will request additional balance by PayPal. So you may go ahead and place your order for the EPS but note that you wanted it in EPO.

Thank you for choosing Caliber Hobby.
