COMPANY BACKGROUND

Wasatch Pharmaceutical, Inc. is a fourteen ye= ar old company with a record of outstanding achievements in the field of D= ermatology. Dermatology. Under the name of its subsidiary, American I= nstitute of Skin Care (AISC), Wasatch has operated two prototype cl= inics for the last five years where the products and medical therapies hav= e been tested and proven on hundreds of patients. The Company's activities= have been centered on research in the area of serious skin diseases. A concurrent discovery and benefit = is WSCH's dramatic success in the area of skin rejuvenation.

Seeing the high growth potential from major funding, WSC= H elected to become a public company less than two years ago.

Wasatch's major successes in the area o= f skin diseases include:

Cystic Acne, Ec= zema, Seborrhea, Contact Dermatitis, Molluscum, Folliculitis, Acne Rosacea= and less prevalent skin diseases.
Inte= restingly, these skin disorders account for more than 70% of all busine= ss in the field of dermatology for which there are very few (if any) s= afe, effective therapies like those developed by Wasatch.
Because the therapies developed by Wasatch domina= te this area of medicine, WSCH has elected to market its products via = company-owned clinics throughout the United States. This decision has= resulted in the establishment of two research clinics in Utah for = the purpose of implementing procedures within the clinics pursuant to test= ing and confirming the results that were achieved in past clinical trials.= Due to its success rate of 90% on hundreds of patients over a f= ive year period, WSCH's clinics are now on line with insurance provide= rs independent of HMOs. Efforts to establish Preferred Providership status= with HMOs are presently being pursued.
THIS JUST IN : WSCH BR= EAKING NEWS
 

Wasatch Pharmaceutical Inc. Announ= ces a New Physician Marketing Campaign and Listing On German Stock Exchang= es

MURRAY, Utah--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 27, 2001--Wasatch Ph= armaceutical Inc. (OTCBB:WSCH - news)= CEO Gary Heesch announced today a marketing campaign directed to physicia= ns. A direct link has been established on a physician recruiting Web site = making available therapies for the treatment of cystic acne, acne, follicu= litis and skin rejuvenation. Physicians will find the benefits of these tr= eatment therapies by logging on to the "X Acne" link at the P= hysician Search website. This physician search Web site typically rece= ives over 200,000 hits per month. Mr. Heesch reminded, "Our tr= eatment therapy products are also available via the AISC Online Store.&quo= t;

These skin treatmen= t products come in kit form providing a 90-day supply to patients for the = full treatment program. Included in the kit is an instructional video on t= he treatment therapy allowing the patient to use these products in their h= ome. The therapies, when used as instructed, achieve a success rate of = eradication in excess of 90% with no side effects of any consequence. = Previously, these therapies and associated products were only available th= rough the two prototype clinics in Utah. The availability of these product= s will open the way for family practitioners, pediatricians, internists an= d other primary care physicians to retain their patients under their care = during the treatment of these common skin disorders. The benefit to ins= urance providers is the potential to save millions of dollars in reimburse= ment costs by freeing the physician and the patient from ongoing treatment=

In the coming year, s= ix additional therapies will be made available for a broad range of sk= in disorders that are badly in need of successful therapies.

= Gary Heesch also announced the listing of W= asatch Pharmaceutical stock on the Frankfurt and Berlin Exchanges in Ge= rmany. Active trading on these exchanges will take place upon the comp= letion of a research report in Germany. Said Mr. Heesch, "We feel thi= s is a significant event as Wasatch will gain wider exposure as a l= eader in dermatology and will put buying pressure on its stock t= o reflect the true value of a company that has committed years = of research and development of products that allow people with serious ski= n disorders to live normal and more productive lives."

<= font face=3DArial size=3D1>There may be forward-looking statements in t= his release. Investors are cautioned that such forward-looking statements = involve risks and uncertainties, including, without limitation, continued = acceptance of the Company's products, increased levels of competition, new= products introduced by competitors, changes in the rates of subscriber ac= quisition and retention, and other risks detailed from time to time in the= Company's periodic reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commiss= ion.

= A LOOK AT THE COMPETITION

Dermatologists are the primary competitors of WSCH's clinics. Dermatologi= sts specialize in the treatment of skin disorders and prescribe medication= s to treat the disorder. However, competing products address the sympto= ms of acne and eczema, not the cause. 

The competition's sk= in care treatments include prescription medications (oral and external use= drugs prescribed by dermatologists and other doctors) and over-the-counte= r products.

Several common prescription = medications include: 

1) E-Mycin for oral= and topical use, 2) Cleocin for oral and topical use, 3) Tetracycline for= oral and topical use, and 4) Accutane for oral use only.

Over-the-counter acne medications include: 
1) Cle= arasil and Oxy creams, 2) generic brand creams, 3) medicated pads, and 4) = medicated soaps.

Many of the competition's o= ral medications have serious side effects.

Costs for= competing treatments range from $2.50 for medicated soaps to $200 for Acc= utane oral medication prescription. Treatments are on-going. Over tim= e a person can spend an unlimited amount of money on such treatment= s. An example would be someone who spent $1,500 for a 22 week program= of Accutane which includes blood testing. Another example would be s= omeone who has had acne for many years and has spent in excess of $34,000.=

At this time there is no known competit= or who treats the causes of these skin disorders and no competitor can= claim a success rate equal to that of Wasatch's treatments.

A FINAL WORD ABOUT WSCH

With a proven suc= cess rate of 90% in a field that affects so many of our lives, Wasatch has= clearly positioned itself in a market hungry and desperate for suc= cessful products and treatment. WSCH has recently expanded its market= ing presence (as seen in the above press release) and will continue to agg= ressively broaden awareness over the near term. The listing of WSCH= on the German stock exchange is another sign of the company's credibility= and ambitious plans to establish itself as a major global player i= n the field of dermatology.

 WSCH has taken on a c= ompletely different approach. By addressing the causes of skin disord= ers rather than the symptoms, WSCH will help to successfully eliminate ski= n disease altogether. Given the following:

1. Successf= ul 14-year history and plans for expansion
2. Impressive revenue proje= ctions ($525 million+ annualized by year 5 and $125 million in EBIT)<= br> 3. Virtually unmatched success rate of 90%...

= ...and = so much more, WSCH will certainly be watched by savvy investors for some t= ime to come.

I didn't find the fuselage surgery as difficult as he makes it out, chiefly because i used a 50/50 mix of talcum powder and superglue as a substitute for adhesive and putty when fairing in the new fuselage sides. (This talc/superglue "composite" sands easily in 15-20 min, doesn't shrink, and actually adds structural rigidity. I've thrown my putty out) Shortening wings and increasing sweep means reribing, but even that went ok. My last hurdle is new cowl and cheek fairings since my woodcarving skills aren't great, and i've no vacuform capability. but if i manage to persevere, i think it may grab some attention on the 1/32 contest table. _________________________________________________________________ Send and receive Hotmail on your mobile device: http://mobile.msn.com ------------------------------ Date: Wed, 6 Feb 2002 14:05:03 -0000 From: "Pedro N.

The underside, however, is fabric with a central lace. The entire engine nacelles are fabric aft of the cowling, though the inboard cheek panel that mounts the tach and pulsometer is ply. The entire nacelle on the G3 DOES appear to be fabric, per the Maquettes kit. Perhaps Matt would be kind enough to scan and forward the pictures in his possession (Nos. 21,22,24,26, and 28 are illustrative). I have no scanner, unfortunately.

As for dimensions I don't have any ref to check against. I'm sure someone else out there will help you with that (they're a great bunch!). The interior details aren't too bad, but a little bare. I'd trash 'em and scratch replacements, anyway. I've heard the nose on the N.17 is too wide, but it seems to match scaled-down copies of Rozendaal drawings in the N.17 datafile. wing rib and empennage details are too sharp, but not difficult to soften. Interior framing and control details are too thin and the seat is wrong size/shape, and there's no fuel tank or carb inlet pipe, but I carved away all the interior details and scratch-built everything anyway. "V" struts are too flat, but that's curable. In my humble opinion these are both "point of departure" kits, but then they don't pretend to be $100 Tamiyagawa Shake 'n Bake's. I think either is a chance to show off one's skill/craftsman(craftsperson?)ship, but I also feel that contests should award "degree of difficulty" points. Some of us can't afford OOTB Museum pieces, or even the resin/PE which cost more than the kit. (Sorry, I'll climb off the soapbox, now.)

He said all the kits have warped wings and suggested that I use warm water to straighten them. According to him, this is a result of the limited run molding process. He offered new parts if I couldn't fix the kit's wings. Could this warp be caused by poor quality control rather than any limitations of the molding process?

Really! All of them? But SMO are still sending them out the door regardless? >According to him, this is a result of the limited run molding >process. Really! How come this is not a regular "feature" of other short run folks? >He offered new parts if I couldn't fix the kit's wings. Fair enough. What about a complete refund for the kit and the S&H expense? Then, one could use the money to purchase the Sierra Scale vac and still have $17 left over for after market detail bits, if you wanted. See Peter Fedder's example: http://www.wwi-models.org/Images/StLouis/Fedders/index.html Remember too that HiTech folks packed these kits and sent them off to whichever retailers in that condition, unless of course, they have trained-monkeys doing stuff for them, which might explain... no never never mind! How could HiTech fail to notice that so many of their kits had this problem? One possible answer is that HiTech didn't care and given that SMO have promoted the heck out of this thing as "Kit of the Year", they thought they could convince enough people that these things were worth buying. I appreciate Sandy's argument about not wanting to spend $130 on say, a Copper State Models equivalent (Does Eric make this kit?) but someone of Sandy's ability could easily do better with a vac kit.
