Any idea when it will be available in the US? They appear to be available in the UK and possibly Australia, but not here. I don't even see them mentioned on Caliber Hobby's website.

May be call and ask them.

NPS version part number GWTM400O

All the EPO models only come in white but they are cheaper than the EPS versions.

Regarding the EPO versions, I always prefer EPS when it comes to GWS kits. EPS is lighter, stiffer and looks smoother up close. If you want extra strength, just glass it with 1/2oz cloth.

I agree with all of that. I just hate how susceptible EPS is to dents and dings, and I don't feel like glassing the Tigermoth. I will be glassing my EPS Corsair very soon though.

Yeah, I think I'll just sand my Tiger Moth and give it a coat of poly before painting. It'll be smooth, just not ding proof. but I'm planning to add floats so weight savings is crucial. My GWS Corsair(s) have always flown well with the extra couple of ounces from glass and they stay good looking far longer than unglassed EPS planes. I recommend it for the warbirds.

Well, it looks like I'll be doing the same as you with my moth. Despite my rant about EPS, i went ahead and ordered it in EPS. I did the same thing to my Spitfire and people are surprised to find out that its foam.

GWS USA DOES appear to have many EPO kits, but they are not listed with the older EPS kits in the "Airplane Kits" link. You need to click on the banner picture to see them.

They need to revise their web page to show both EPS and EPO kits from the "Airplane Kits" link.

Hi Bob,

It might not be a good idea owing to the shipping expense unless the quantity ordered is big enough. Probably you have to call on GWS USA to see if there's any shipment of these EPO kits.

Pls place orders to GWS USA for USA market demands.

If small orders shipped from GWS China, the custom broker charges will be too costy on both side.

We constantly ship GWS products to our USA warehouse.

GWS USA 100% own by me.

If some day economics wake up again, your orders can be full fill the container, then we can think about ship to you from GWS China again to save the shipping cost for inland USA.
