    RE: ASM Lancaster?

    Lancaster
    Well its home,I had a re-think last night before the love of my life changes her mind or puts any conditions on it, I went and picked it up. That is one big box. Rojs hobbies still have them in stock so this will have friends some where in Australia. A point of intrest because of the size, the train was the best option to get it home off peak of course. There is no way it will fit in the car. this model is going to be great fun. Yours A very happy Paul T PS Photos still coming.

    RE: ASM Lancaster?

    Lancaster owner
    I hope you like the above heading Tomas. I have also broke the bank account for one or two weeks so the power plants will be one or two weeks off. I do have 2 OS 46 AXs and 2 OS 55 AXs but I would like to go with 4 stroks just for the sound. for now I will just look and start with the servos. It will take a week to get the work table in shape to enable work to start. It will be out of the box at the next club day, no one knows yet that I have it ,hell last wednesday I did'nt know I wanted it. Now there will be more Photos taken sunday .I will post a heap that night. (that 2 more sleeps from now) Yours Paul T PS

    Say Quigley.......you wouldnt of happen to of seen an ASM B-17 down there would you? I have everything but the plane now ready to go, motors, servos, receiver and extensions. I'd really like to get your take on the quality of your plane. I saw an ASM Cessna 120" at my LHS and it totally stunk!! It looked like junk and nowhere near scale. The sides on the plastic fusalage where darn near see through!!

    RE: ASM Lancaster?

    Speedracer2112 I have let the side down with no more photos but our field was water loged last Sunday and all aircraft had to be carried in to the field to fly , The next opportunity will be this friday night when I take it to the club meeting and I will report to you there comments on the Quality. I was pleased with what I have looked at but I feel that if it has a rough landing it may be the end. Teas on hear so more later Yours Paul T

    Speedracer 2112 Tea is over and I'm yet to do the dishes. As to the Question about the b17 the hobby shop "Rojs" in Melbourne have them listed but maked as out of stock, http://www.rojshobbies.com/home.html . When I was there to collect the Lancaster they had 3 that I saw ,there may have been more. I don't think I would be allowed to arive home with any more than I'd planed yours Paul T

    RE: ASM Lancaster?

    GENTS,

    I think everyone will be very happy with what this model brings....
    I love the working bomb bays that are already built into this model !!!

    We will be offering a SCALE DETAIL SET and we will ship them worldwide...this will be a scale cockpit, turret, gun set to really spruce up this baby....
    we will be working w/ TY on this of course and also twisting his arm to do the B-17 the same way... we will also find and or make the right sized crew members as well...
    all together you can get it all in one stop at one place!

    VQ WARBIRDS is excited about this new awesome heavy bomber...

    -CHEERS!

    I saw the price. $959.00 for the Lancaster and $929 for the B-17. Does that convert to the same amount in USD or is it less down under?

    RE: ASM Lancaster?

    Speedracer2112 well as I promised,I Hope I can down load some photos . I took the said aircraft to the local club meeting all were impressed with the quality of the finish and layout of the model. All said it was far to large for there workshops but thats another issue, it takes an age to unwrap and re pack. I will need to polish the wing tubes to make the assembley a little more easy. The only think that I feel would make it better is the engine pods a little stronger in the covering. I do have the top flite B25 so I'm accustomed to the thickness of there engine pods.
    As to the Question of the price,your US dollar is better than ours At a guess it would be about $800 dollas US . Its only Money. They will come down in price after blokes like me get there fix of great planes and they find them harder to sell. I'v had about 4 blokes wan't to fly it for me, they even want the budy box on it so they can all have a go regardless of the mode.
    Norm the longest flyer at the club, thinks it would best to have two power suplys with two recivers . this will allow the back half to come away with no wires and also reduce the length of the wires. I do have 2.4 Hitec gear and so the twin reciver system will be used.

    RE: ASM Lancaster?

    Well topgun600 Is the price out in the US. If you get the undercarrage with the aircraft they knock a bit off but it come in at under the $1300 Aust dollas . I'm on a pension so the motors will have to wait. I have it home and I like the look of it . Sounds like only about 18 sleeps till there in stock over there. I think I like to follow some one else in the construction and let them make the first moves.Motor selection is always a great topic with something new and I will be keen to follow the threads on that.
    nemesis4u As to the topic of the bomb bay doors Some one the other night said that it was possible to put about 3 cats in there. not that ,thats going to happen, but it gives you some insight into the size of the bomb bay. Its late here now its as wet as hell and the wind is at around 40Km/H so no flying Sunday off to bed. Yours Paul T

    Your right. Its $857.00 USD. The combined kit plus retracts is only $1,190.56 USD. Thats NOT cool! Why do the people in the USA have to pay $700 USD more for the same plane? Shipping would be about the same. Seems like gouging to me.

    I think I might drop the whole project just on principle.

    RE: ASM Lancaster?

    Speedracer2112 The Questiion on price The top flite B25 was ,in Australian Dollars, $1045 +$450 for the re-tracts so at $1290 the Lancaster is in the right area of value The B25 was aquired 2Years agio and that what I payed. I am unable to remember the value of our Dollar but I think it was just a little better than what it is now. These are fair dinkum prices as that is what I payed. the B25 later droped to $955 at other hobby outlets . There are very few hear in Australia (B25)s With all the gear in them they are quite expensive . I payed over $700 for the 2 OS Alpa 81s now If I go with the Alpa 56s that will be over a $1200 Aust dollars, servos will depend on what you put in it but they will be all new out of the box. expensive for the control surfaces but still using quality for the rest. This is the major reason why this thing is still in the box. I have 9 new servos left in my collection ( 4 hitec HS-5485HB and 5 spektrum ) so there are one or two left to get. I like the OS motors but the problem here is that I don't have any 56 in stock its a size that I have never aquired.I think I should also state here that I'm not much of a flyer so these things are for a collection. I do have a friend named Norn that Will fly it if I ever get there. Now I hope the other half never find this post . Yours Paul T

    RE: ASM Lancaster?

    Global/Hobby People have gotta be embarassed by this one. It wouldnt of been so bad if the plane was released in the United States first. Australia got them first. Seems they can make a profit at $1200.00 for the kit and retracts together. We cant here? They can keep their plane. I gotta tell you, this is the first time Ive seen this kind of greed from a distributer. Now they are stuck with the inflated price because of the pre-sales.

    I'll try overseas. If I cant get it so be it. I wont be robbed in broad daylight.

    RE: ASM Lancaster?

    Well we are at stage 1 well I would be if the mounts for the servos were in the box.There is a bag of blocks but I'm sure there for the undercarrage doors as there is only 8 with hinges. There are12 needed not supplied I would say.Stage one will be after I locate some ply for the Job. Not a good start.

    RE: ASM Lancaster?

    I agree with SpeedRacer. The source cost would be the same. They are charging what they think the market will bear. They seem to forget we live in the "Information Age" and people find this kind of thing out....and resent it.

    ESM can build a 95"B-25 for $450 and a set of retracts for another $150 and that's a fiberglass fusealage and painted graphics. It would be nice if they threw down a B-17!!! With Globals price book ESM is GIVING you a free plane and all you have to do is pay for the shipping!!

    I was concerned about the price months ago but still dreamed on. I even suggested that there had to be some "wiggle room" in the price. BOY WAS I RIGHT!!

    As for now I'm on the sidelines. I'll be back if the price is corrected equal to Australia's price. My local hobby shop is going to cancel there order also after finding out about the huge price difference.

    If I owned a hobby shop, I'd be on the phone asking WTHeck!! I personally think that has happend. You (Thomas) owe it to your costomers to protect them from this kind of behavior and we expect it. I'm know your not setting the price BTW but you do know there is a big problem here.

    I've always heard great things about your customer support. Here's your big chance. Fix this one for us.


    Sorry boss.
