There's normally a black and white version of the manual included and it is normally also posted on the GWS website here http://www.gws.com.tw/english/servic...ane_manual.htm

If you've applied to be on the e/b programme I think it's assumed that you have enough experience to be able to solve, for yourself, any minor problems you might bump into.

Dear all,

Will have the decal and a copy of the manual in the kit for EB.

The Wing and the stabilizers are easy to remove from the GWS-15.

Especially the main wing -- similar the way you connect or disconnect the Tamiya battery connector. Easy to carry GWS-15 around. GWS has new plastic parts. Once you joint the wing - secured by these connectors. Of course, there is rods inside the wing to make it strong enough to fly.

Hi Jim,

We'll try our best to ship all EB kits earlier. Hopefully, we could make it before early June. Be reminded that its weight (for single kit) would be heavier than GWS-38.

I don't think any are being shipped untill the 15th. That's when Mr.Lin said the decals would be ready.

I've been told that EB kit will be with manual and decals, and the
shipment date would be earlier than 15th of June if I've not been
informed wrongly.

We will ship the kits to Taiwan and EMS to all of you.

This can redue the shipping cost to you also we can add motor in if you order the kit with powers.

For EB bought GWS-38, let us know. We can try to put a set of the prop. in Taiwan also.

Once we are very sure about the date. May will also email to all of you.

Shipping from Taiwan to the world is much cheaper and efficient.

Will keep you updated.

Skyhawk,

Well, I'm afraid I did not mention any date of May, I mentioned early June and 15th of June instead. We'll do our best to make it earlier.

mods...

just thinking about how people might try to mod this bird...

Working speed brake? This would be just aft of the cockpit

Flaps? Gonna need to slow her down for landing...

Ailerons? Looks like these aren't needed based on the ailevator configuration.

Retracts? Should be straightforward.

Bomb-drop? After all, that's one of the F-15 missions.

Into the FWIW category regarding the tail markings in the kit, LN is for the 48th FW at RAF Lakenheath flying F-15C/D/E (plus points). However, 91-303 is a F-15E Strike Eagle (minus points). Lots of folks would LOVE to model this awesome bird and although externally F-15's are fairly uniform, the E model has two outstanding features - a tandem cockpit and conformal fuel tanks (CFTs). Yes, I know CFTs are detachable but the mission profile of the F-15E has them attached just about universally. But if we keep this little secret, nobody else will know - especially when the F-15 rips by.
