Wow ... Am totally shocked and gobsmacked to hear this news. This is from VQWarbirds website:

"It is with a very heavy heart we share the news that ESM has formally notified us that they are discontinuing the production of all models for the foreseeable future. They originally moved the factory molds/plugs 600KM to be closer to TOP RC MODEL FACTORY and have not been able to find an efficient / cost effective new facility to resume production...."

"We [VQ] have huge plans for TOP RC MODELS and VQ in 2018 with the introduction of the all new VQ Beechcraft Baron twin 1700mm wingspan in (2) Color Schemes, and Sonex Hornet EDF in T-Bird Scheme for a 70mm fan, coming in March 2018.

Then the new F8F Rare Bear 30cc size, P-47 D and P-47 B .46-55 size EP-GP ,Zlin Acrobat 46-55 size EP-GP and incredible first ever all wood 110″ B-24 Liberator coming in Summer 2018! (110″ B-24 model shown is courtesy of Mark Glanville, photo for illustrative purposes only).
NEW TOP RC MODEL FW-190 93″ Model Launches in January and more stock of ZERO , P-51D GUNFIGHTER models arriving in the Mid Spring/Summer months.
GREAT THINGS COMING IN SPRING and SUMMER 2018 for VQ WARBIRDS PILOTS !!!"

Can't wait to check out the TOP RC MODELS F8F Rare Bear 30cc. Wondering if it's gold/white or purple/orange.

I'm having that problem with my 73" ESM Bearcat - want the wheel well liners but can't get them.

Yellow has been out or business for many years.
You can still find some of their items squirreled away though.
