Mr. Lin obviously doesn't care about his customers in the USA, he hasn't even been back to comment on this for almost 2 weeks now.

"Is GWS USA going out of business?"

I think the answer to this question is Yes.

There are items that have been out of stock for well over a year, and GWS USA has no idea what is going on.

SEVERAL containers worth of products are on PO w/GWS USA, so his one & only response is nonsense.

How does Tower Hobbies have so many GWS kits in stock? I just received two Pico Moths from them last week.

Roger,
what about those of us that are Wholesale buyers? What do we do with low and no inventory of our most popular GWS items?

This was obviously just blowing smoke... I sent an email to BOTH email addresses 5 days ago and never received a response from either address. WHAT A JOKE! As soon as my existing GWS inventory sells out, I'm done w/this company & will not carry the products anymore.
