Mr. Lin obviously doesn't care about his customers in the USA, he hasn't even been back to comment on this for almost 2 weeks now.

I think the answer to this question is Yes.

There are items that have been out of stock for well over a year, and GWS USA has no idea what is going on.

SEVERAL containers worth of products are on PO w/GWS USA, so his one & only response is nonsense.

How does Tower Hobbies have so many GWS kits in stock? I just received two Pico Moths from them last week.

And I got two Formosas last month:

This was obviously just blowing smoke... I sent an email to BOTH email addresses 5 days ago and never received a response from either address. WHAT A JOKE! As soon as my existing GWS inventory sells out, I'm done w/this company & will not carry the products anymore.
