Mr. William Scarbrough, Thank you!!!

I have received an email from Mr. William Scarbrough, an American fan of our SWS kits, who also purchased the Horten.

It seems like there's a mistake in the parts number of the "R-Runner" of the Horten kit that he was building up.

I shared and checked this out with the Development Team as soon as possible!!
As Mr. William Scarbrough pointed out, 8 number marks on the "R-Runner" are actually mistaken.

Mr. William Scarbrough, Thank you very much!!

Thanks to you we can give this important notice to the Horten owners all over the world.
From the whole SWS Development team, thank you from the bottom of our heart!!

One more thing!
An imperfection detected in the F-Runner!!


Is it a die-cast damage?

The attachment hole of the Horten wheel cover (part F3) is buried for some reasons.

After checking the part, please use a pin-vice (1.5mm of diameter) to open the hole but be careful not to make a through hole.

For those who received their SWS Horten kits purchased after October 25th, please do not worry.

Please use the replacement part with an open hole enclosed to your kit, or delivered via mail order and in our shops.

We are sorry for the inconvenience, but for those who cannot open the hole, please contact our Zoukei-mura SWS After Service Department and we well send you a replacement part with the hole opened.
(Zoukei-mura SWS After Service Department mail:faq@zoukeimura.co.jp)

The imperfection has been probably caused by the pin of the cast; besides that, we have also been slow to notice. We are really sorry for this inconvenience.

The Horten has now entered its development in 1/48 scale!!

1/48 modelers, all of you fans, please look forward to seeing it.

And who knows, we will perhaps bring the Horten to all the 1/72 fans too.


See you soon!!
