Hello to all WarBird Flyers! I posted a "Links" query when this Forum was still in the "Support + Suggestions" section, now we've got our own Format so thought I'd try it again. At first I wanted to break it up into WW1, WW2, Jets and EDFs, Documentation, etc., but that could get unwieldly. How about a comment after the link describing what (relating to Warbirds) they carry? I'll start it off with a couple of the more obvious ones;
www.hobby-lobby.com (http://www.hobby-lobby.com) (Everything, mostly ARFs)
www.aerodromerc.com (http://www.aerodromerc.com) (LOTS of WW1 "Short" Kits, Plans, "Pre-Built", balsa kits, decals, acess.)
www.rchobby.co.uk (http://www.rchobby.co.uk) (EDF's, IC Ducted fans, Helis)
www.gwsexpert.com (http://www.gwsexpert.com) (GWS WW11 Warbirds, EDFs, Acces.)

www.warbirdkits.com (http://www.warbirdkits.com) (WW11 Kits)
http://www.wingmfg.com (WW11 BIG Kits, Short Kits, Acces.)
www.sbrcmodels.com (http://www.sbrcmodels.com) (EPP "Crash-survivable" ARFs and RTFs)
http://users.joplin.com/~wcflyer/freedir.htm (Free plans for flat-foam WW11 profile models)
http://www.hpcpublishing.com (Plans)
http://freeflightmodels.com (plans, few "stick + Tissue" kits)
www.houseofbalsa.com (http://www.houseofbalsa.com) (WW11 Kits)

www.aalmps.com (http://www.aalmps.com) (Plans)
www.traplet.com (http://www.traplet.com) (Plans)
Don't have the "Wattage" (hobbypeople.com?) site handy, same with Tower, Horizon, Dumas, Guillows, but they aren't too hard to find. Also didn't list "Mountain Models" as I understand Doug isn't carrying the Molt 'Birds anymore. I know there's more, help us out!

Another good link and a new P-47D "Thunderbolt" ARF. First the link;

Also check out the "Bargain Zone" page, lots of the older Dare kits, some Wattage, and other good deals.
Now the new "Jug". Made by E-Flight, EPS foam 400ARF , painted and markings, etched panel lines, cockpit and canopy included, molded machine guns on wings, carbon fiber wing spar. They claim 2-4 hours of "easy" assembly and radio installation.
Wingspan 39" 990mm

Price $ 79.99. During the Holidays New Creations is offering free shipping on orders over $ 100.
The model in the (small) photo has the classic "Checkerboard" tail surfaces, red nose and (apparently) fixed L.G. If you want something different, take a look! Ron

Kurt's kits and plans are also available in Europe from Germany (www.aerodromerc.de). Furthermore, they are also offered as extended kits which contain the stripwood, musicwire, CA hinges and stuff.

Here's a very good site that somehow slipped past the first time:
http://www.turnkeyrc.com Carries a wide selection of "Short" kits (laser-cut ribs, fuselage bulkheads and sides, tail components, plans and instructions, but not strip stock), from Check six and Turnkey plus the Gus Morfis plans.
The Check Six models include the Hurricane 44" W.S. $40.00, P 51 Mustang 41" W.S., $45.00, P 40, 41" W.S., $45.00, P 39 Aircrobra 37.5" W.S., $45.00, Spitfire Mk IX, 45" W.S., $45.00.
The Turnkey short kits available are;
P-40, Dauntless, P 36, Swordfish, Stahlwerk, Fi 156 Storch, Fi 256 Storch, P 47 Thunderbolt, Bugatti, Loening, DH-2, XP 55, Bf-163.
One example of the Turnkey specs, the SBD Dauntless has a 32" W.S., is 1:15 scale, weight 17 oz, wing loading 12.9 oz per sq. ft. The short kit is $50.00, canopy is $8.00 and cowl is $8.00.
A new release is the DeHavilland Mosquito, W.S. 55", scale 1:12, made for (2) glow .15's, short kit $55.00, canopy $6.00.
Morfis Kits: Typhoon, P 47, Mosquito, Hurricane, P 39, P 40, Corsair.
They also have canopies and cowls for a number of other planes, plan sets (alone) for several models, and 1:12th scale markings for U.S. and British models, $ 8.95 each.
There's some unusual models here, worth a look!

The official Guillow's website is www.guillow.com (http://www.guillow.com). Another good site for Guillow's kits cheaper than Guillow's retail is http://www.acsupplyco.com/aerospace/guillows/guillowsmain.htm. Although I have found some of the kits cheaper at my LHS.
