At $124.00 it's the best "deal" I have seen. I ordered 2!

Ok, expedited shipping to his front door, notwithstanding, I'll wager he has at least one ready for paint within the next four days! :whistle:

Shhh, he sent away for one from New Zealand or someplace far away because it hadn't been released here, and already FINISHED IT!!!

 

We love you, John, and you're as crazy as a bedbug. :rofl: (says the man with three Corsairs in the basement, one on order and two more needed for two dioramas).

I have a similar dilemma with Tiger tank references. Though I already have 40 or 50 books on the vehicle, I don't hesitate to buy more, when I find them at a good price.

Are you sure Bill? I saw where it was back ordered and checked to be sure and was told he expected to have 'em tomorrow (Tuesday). You might want to check and be sure they are all spoken for. :coolio:

I was about to say that you are insane for spending that kind of money on them, but then I remembered that Corsairs are pretty much all you ever build, so I guess that's ok. :)

I will re-check tomorrow. I need two more, but I could also wait for LM to have another $2 shipping sale, since I don't need them right away. Dilemmas, dilemmas.... :m0152: :m0152: :m0152: :m0152: :m0152: :m0152:
