Any new word on those and when we'll be recieving them? most of us here would rather you guys sent them to un directly instead of through the vendors like BH?

My landing gear went out today after all of 3 flights

I never expected an email back from BH, but not getting one from FMS was really disappointing. Especially with the pending release of the 79" B-25 I've been waiting for.

Hmmm? I haven't heard back from the lately either?

Well I just cancelled my order for the 2nd mustang (Red Tails) due to the retract problems...I've decided to wait till I see the new replacement's they have promised. Then I may re-order, after I'm assured it will have the new replacement retracts in it.

A&P ...keep after them...they will respond. I feel your pain. It's frustrating to have a nice plane go down for something as trivial as burnt retract issues....It's the only weak link in this plane at need serious improving on ....and It's my understanding they are working on it as we speak.

Don't worry. The B-25 is made by LX and they never answer my E-mails so you shoudn't be disappointed.

Unveiling of the FMS 1700mm "American Beauty"

Well I have been at this for quite a long while now. I am close enough to go ahead and show you guys what I've been up to. Still have some minor painting to do as in the flap channels plus some vinyl to apply along with touch up and overspay to clean up. I have learned a lot over the last few months while working on this project which I will share in later posts. Painting a foam plane like this is quite a roller coaster ride!
