STYK, you are mistaken, your link shows the range of ESM warbirds we design in partnership with ESM, the range has nothing to do with KMP and their new range, nice though, are they not?

Is there, or will there be, a U.S. importer/distributor? Some of these planes looks really nice and I like the sizes.

Hi all, it has been a while since KMP visited RCU. We been busy you know. The T-28's have come and gone... There are many owners out there reporting wonderful news in the quality and workmanship. Everyone who received the first of the first production run of our Signature Series Warbirds have been more than pleased. The T-28 is a big hit whoohoo.. Thank you Andrew Kondor for being diligent on making sure the plane was beautiful before delivery. Sorry to all that received one on the wait. The AT6 is the same, come and gone. That airframe with an 88"wingspan only weighed 10 lbs., I weighed the prototype. I have since heard that our new factory has flown the FW190D9, I am anxiously awaiting it's debut sometime at the middle to end of December. The new Spitfire will also be accompanying the new 190. One of our customers is targeting Scalemasters with our T-28, he is having Kelvin at Keleo mockup the scale exhaust with a Saito 450 in it. That will be great to observe as well. I just found out that our own Andrew Kondor will be attending the NW Model exposition in Monroe Washington this year. We intend to have the FW190 and Spit for the first debut. This next year will be a bang up year so you Warbird nuts, be on your toes and pocket books. It still is first come first serve. Happy Flying!

Any info in the 190 D9? Will Sierra be making a set of retracts for it? Can I get on a list and pick it up at the Monroe show in Feburary??

Thanks

The latest information is that the FW190 is on schedule at this time. We expect it to sell out even faster than the T-28 did. Yes, the retracts are designed around Sierra Giant product. The plane should be a great addition to the KMP product line. If you are genuinely interested in this fabulous Warbird, we are just starting to take preorders for it.

To be fair, I didn't order mine until the Spring of this year. I was told then that there would be a few months wait while the new, re-designed T-28s were manufactured and shipped from China. This was acceptable to me and further communications with KMP have been exemplary. I just got a little nervous when I saw the above post saying all the new T-28s had come and gone, and I still hadn't received mine.

**UPDATE** Just got word that my T-28 is on it's way. All is well!
