Any pics of the GWS-38? How "off scale" will it be?

I would think that if it were due anytime soon we'd have heard more about it. I'm guessing more than 6 months, probably closer to a year, since Mr. Lin mentioned that he intends to rearrange the specs of his current design.
I'm willing to wait rather than buy a balsa park flyer

If it's a sure thing I would be willing to wait, afterall I currently have (5) unbuilt kits in my shop to keep me busy until then.

P.S. - Mr. Lin please keep us posted on any developements for the GWS-38
especially any time frame as to when we can see this model in the
U.S.

- Thanks -

Mike

We've been waiting since August of 2004 for the GWS P38. I love GWS products but how much longer..... I'm 63 years old and could die waiting for a GWS 38 !!

Hehe, I'm 28 Old_dude and I could go before the GWS p-38 Let's hope that's not the case. I've already told Mr. Lin I'll buy 10 of them

I would most certainly pickup one of each.P40 being my favorite bird of all time,I must have one.I'm very close to going with a Sureflite,but am holding off due to the affection I have for my GWS Mustang,Corsair,Spitfire,and Zero/Texan.I want to get a matching size P40 to compliment the set.A P38 would be the next logical? addition to the fleet.Keep us posted Mr Lin.You have set the standards in this hobby that everyone else is trying to meet.Keep up the good work.

But GWS-38 will go earlier than FW-190.
Already I am disappointed... FW190 has taken so long..
Had to buy FSK190, and soon Alfa190

Tower Hobbies is advertising the GWS P-40 in the regular version with EPS350 Motor & also the "Slope" version.

GWS P40 (Stock #TE2248) for $56.00
GWS P40 Slope (Stock #TE2249) for $29.75

That's quite a deal on the sloper version which is what I buy, these like aren't the junky profile planes are they?

P.S. - If this is the fuselage P40, I will probably put the P40 & Formosa II & C47 on my Christmas list.

I would buy the P-38, even if it wasn't to scale.

I was just at the LHS and found a P-38 courtesy of S&B models, but it was $230 Australian for the airframe, vac formed plastics, and a bit of hardware. No thanks, I'd rather have a kit that only needs the electronic guts.
I'll wait patiently Mr. Lin.
