Kin,

I am really looking forward to seeing your new range and owning some of your models, particularly the F-20.

I'm not a huge warbird fan but I really do love the P-40. HK has a 1700mm foam version that is stunning but crippled by bad component that crippled demand. Still the airframe is beautiful. I hope that an all composite version comes to your stable soon.

Good job Kin
The fuselage net weight (no wooden former included) , it should be 1.4-1.6kg (no painting included) , i think after former install and paint is about 2.2kg within . because it is simple inside the fuselage and not much former need . just nose gear mount ,fan mounting and tail wing a little small piece thing , so not possible over 2 kg ! .so the flying weight with a fan and 8s battery is roughly 4kg total , So a good quality fan are also at least 4 kg now in market . the wing have 3cm longer each side .and width a little bit in the wing cord , if you are not check deatil , you can not feel the size different . so the weight and power ratio is very happy flying i sure .

Hey Kin,

Do you have any pictures of the econo wing, or the model assembled?

And are you planning on supplying the models painted or in gel coat?

Thanks

the wing are cutting the foam and prepare the balsa sheet now , i will post it soon . gel coat kit is not problem , it is cheaper than the econ version . in fact the gel coat kit can see my quality and the real net weight , customer will feel quality much better ! (Some factory afraid sell it in gel coat kit because it show their quality , But it never sell to china here ! but you need to paint it yourself , Ha!Ha!

When do you plan to use epoxy resin and vaccum bag your work with peel ply to make it lighter?
Friberglass is ok but polyester resin has got to go...

the Vacum bag is usually working here and hollow mold matel is Rochacell .so this is the best material we are using in every models . So we make the models very light . R&G is our material supplier .

Dear Kin,
I am looking forward to your new models .I hope to see other offerings like the P40 .
I know many models from China struggle with the type of fiberglass /composite material used and in the end "tin can" =part flex or are very soft without multiple formers.
Some examples , Wills Hobbies offered many 66" and larger warbirds , many were very very soft and needed much work to be a safe model .
CMP-China Model products was better but still used the less desirable fiberglass in the fuselage componants and the last was ESM -they were the best in there class .
I was wondering if you can review what type of composite methods and meterials you will be using .
Thank you Sir
