Thanks!

 

I'll "keep a close eye out " for my favorite mail-order distributer outfit to get theirs.

Still showing it backordered, and I bet they took a lot more orders for it than they actually received.

I'm just telling ya what happened. Not only did I get an email

yesterday, I got a phone call from them asking if I still wanted

the product. The email said it was in stock Mar 13.

I think it's safe to assume the next boatload from Germany has arrived :shrug: :popcorn:

I have had two on B/O with Tower since December. I have had no communications from them of any type. My order status says available Mid-MAR. I guess Tower doesn't like me! If I don't get it shipped to me from this go round, I'm gonna cancel my pre-order and go with another vendor.

I think they were overwhelmed by the first round

and obviously didn't order enough.

Give 'em a call and ream 'em Bob  :fight:

This 'is' mid Mar btw.

Thanks for the info Mike. I called them on the first go round, right after your initial post that said you got yours, and the dude I talked with on the phone had no knowledge that they had received stock and didn't know anything about them shipping currently. My impression of the conversation was, we're going out of business and I'm probably gonna lose my job so I don't give a @#$%. Last chance for me this go round. Another week and I don't receive a shipping notice and it's bye-bye and cancel.

Right !!

Yep , today.  I guess the bottom line is , how many came over

on the boat from Germany ? Hopefully it's a bigger load than

the first.

Next time ask for Teresa Oliver or a gal named Kim (she called me on the phone from 800-523-5017)

Well if they are not making them to the website for sale, nor are all the pre orders getting filled, one would guess not. I see the new HE 219(37 bucks!) is in stock at Sprue and Tower, yet no P-51.

So I called them about my backorder and they said they may

have gotten a small order but they do expect a larger order

that has not arrived yet. She wasn't sure when that would be (of course).

 

So I guess I shoulda kept my big mouth shut .

How was 'I' to know ?
