GWS Bf-109


Has anyone been to the GWS site lately? The ME-109 looks MUCH better than the first pics I saw. The exhaust stacks are in the right place, flat panel canopy, supercharger intake and horizontal stab struts (BF-109E)! These guys seem to be doing their homework. Not that I'll hold my breath........

Splatman,

You can come up for AIR! Stop holding your breath..

I hope all can be seen at the US soon with respect to the EPS-400C, and all the other models that are under the "COMING SOON" posting !

Carlos.

I hope you're right Carlos. After some of the GWS bashing I've seen, I find it hard to believe that some people feel good about paying $100+ for a foam plane and plunking down another $35 for a motor/geardrive/prop! I have a beaver and a P-51 and love them both! I guess if you want to pay $130 for a P-47 or me-109 without a motor, it's your money. Both of these planes are beautiful, but I would rather get an F4U, a BF-109 and a spit all for the same price as one of them w/grd mtr!
Can't you just see that DC-3 in olive drab with invasion stripes?

I can't believe the detail in the BF-109 and Spitfire. Is this paint, decals, molded in detail? I sure hope the final production versions look like this. Very good looking stuff!!!

In UK you need to push JP Distribution. Since 1st lot of GWS Me-109 will be lunched from Taiwan at the end of Feb.

I gave them my samples which shown at Nurenberg Toy Fair. I guess the UK magazines will write reports soon.

GWS Me-109 flew very well even the windy day! With 9.6V and EP9070, pretty speedy!

Quit teasing us! WHEN will we be able to get our grubby little epoxy-stinking hands on it here in the US? I want one.

I hear from production manager said: We can expect first container to be shipped on the way before end of March from our deck!

But the rest parts depaend on you. Ask LHS, get the anser from Horizon. I never unstand why A-10 was badly delayed? GWS staffs worked so hard before Chinese New Year, and made shipment on the way at the end of Jan. 2003! Why the LHS shop in USA still did not get the kits?

In case there will be dozens reasons from Horizon cause delay another month again. GWS will be foreced to consider to make an offer for qualified Ezoners to buy new products before regular sales moving on USA.
