Once I get the invoice how do I provide payment? Was something written in about faxing the invoice with a CC number at one time?

You'll get a form to fill in with the CC number etc. I scanned my form into a .pdf and then e-mailed it to May. This method of payment isn't the most secure in the world but in reality, the risk is low. In fact, my CC bank DENIED the charges twice because it was out of my normal spending habits (I don't travel to Taiwan).

In addition to taping the inside of the cowling to keep it from shattering on impact I also squirt some foaming Gorilla glue around the front edge that is curled back like on the T-6 and Corsair cowlings. It really strengthens it a lot and weighs very little. Bill

What I'm trying to say is the P-40 box might be pretty darn big.

The shipping is fairly inflated IMO when I consider what I have paid via EMS in the past. However when you figure in the cost of the model I want is $35 thats a steal for me.

If you look at the Manual that Ray has just posted, ln post No 1 on this thread, you will see that the tail surfaces of the GWS-40 kit are in two pieces and are separate from the fuselage. The GWS AT-6 has the same method of constructing the tail surfaces.

I email the Payment Authority in one email and the CCV number in another seperate email as recomended by Chen at GWS.

My bank also telephones me and questions my GWS purchases because they are outside my usual spending.

I haven't recieved my email yet. Heck, I haven't even recieved my 2mm adapters from the GWS-15. This is kind of frustrating.

I'm passing on the F-15, passed on the FW-190 and Harvard. I will get one of these P-40's though. Anyone think that they'll hit the US LHS's by August or so?

Mike, I was about to ask the same thing. What was the time it took the recent Early Bird planes to hit the regular market?

I think it's been another 3-4 weeks after the EB guys get thiers. However thats if you go with a place like EPYAYA.com. If you wait for Tower or Horizon to get them be prepared to wait longer or possibally never get them. Nothing wrong with EPYAYA though. Just saying Tower/Great Planes and Horizon seem to not care about GWS or GWS seems to not care for Horizon / Great Planes cause they never seem to even list half the new ones.

Hi Chris,

Would you contact may1011@gws.com.tw again for your P-40 EB, and read your PM for the adaptors of GWS-15.
