Looks like they think anything will sell.

Yep!

Though if that was truly the case, we'd be offering lots of axis warbirds, 80+" span off-the-beaten-path-subject-matter scale foamies, 40-sized wood ARFs, giant-scale 3D kits and just about everything else that doesn't actually sell!

Looks great! Let me ask one of my FAQ's for the UMX's. How much wind do you feel comfortable flying it in?

Definitely a welcome option and pleasant surprise.

For what it’s worth, I actually really would like an Axis warbird, either a UMX BF 109 or UMX FW 190. I wouldn’t mind a UMX Mitsubishi Zero either. I would totally buy any of those.

just a side note Jason...I realize you all cant satisfy everyone, but in future releases of all aircraft, it would be fantastic if you would offer a plain unpainted version, or even multiple decal options like the convergence. I cant speak for all, but to me...a beautiful paint scheme makes the aircraft. Keep up the great work!

This one does come unpainted. The sticker sheet is in the box but not applied, so you can paint it or apply one of three included sticker themes.

Yes, understood, love it. But was stating in their future releases, make the airframe available in an unpainted version also....so we can customize. Personally, I have 24 years served in the USAF...Painted and designed tons of different paint schemes...I am sure that customers would love to customize their aircraft to their own standards and likings. ;-) Personally...I could pick apart the choice that horizon has made to place the military markings...national star insignia etc in the wrong positions etc......but at least they tried....hats off. But hey....if they want a professional for military markings,here I am.
