Any chance you could tell us aside from the covering and maybe some alterations for "E" power, what's the difference(s) between this one and the "old" version.

Stunning plane btw! If it flies as good as my 190, this gonna be great addition to my hangar!

Hey Tim,
I hope you'll have mine put aside when they get there. I'm the one who was at Gizmo's when Carol called you and asked to pre-order one. I made the comment about the Phase 3 F-16 vs. the Kyosho F-16. I hope this didn't put me at the back of the line. hehe I've been looking forward to this plane since the hints started coming out. I can't wait to get the EP version of this bird. Amazing! I might be a little biased about the f-16's but I own the Kyosho Kelly Reno Racer, Kyosho Fockewulf 50, Kyosho F-16 and Kyosho Vision and now am going to buy the Kyosho Hein, so you can see its not that I have anything against Kyosho, that's for sure. These will be out in my birthday month so there's no excuse for me not to have one!

Jim

P.S. I'm also waiting for your new F2 I think its called? Can't wait for that one either. Can't beat fiberglass fuse and built up wing. Dang you guys! We're in a recession!

LOL JIM, BACK OF THE LINE!!!!!!!!!

LOL J/K

Really though, you are one of the first to pre-order. Yeah, the F-2 looks really good. I hope to get a sample soon.

I am glad to see you are supporting Gizmo Hobbies.

Thanks for the info Tim. I think this is going to make a nice project for me this winter. I really liked the 190, so I'd assume this plane would be similar. Any word on what's in the pipeline for the similar future warbirds? Maybe an updated ME-109, P-40..or How about a Hurricane?

Thanks for starting up another great thread Tim!

Looks like another great war bird on the way! If it is anything like the FW190, I will fall in love all over again!

So, does it come with the pilot pictured too?
