The kit price is £600, the lowered flaps an additional £30/50..?

OMG, that is more I was expected, so pricing is almost the same as for Big Cat

Thanks Andy for the info

Anyhow I will get one :)

The Cat was £550, so it's more. I just got some epoxy glue and a couple of Mig 23BN canopies.

you are right Andy, I forgot that meantime there was price increase by HPH a year ago and if I remember correctly current price is something over 700€, however other retailers are selling it for less e.g. HGW models for 660€

Really was waiting lower price of Dakota, just because it is smaller plane and interior is not so complicated.

 

I like HPH models a lot but maybe they could run some loyalty program, that if you will finish their kit, you will get 20% of the price back (bonus for all the parts cleaning :D )

Well, I've asked them today how many 1/48th Peacemakers have they sold.

What do you think was the answer?

Around 200...

Wow! so how many Lancs will sell WNW? thousands? ;)

I do agree with the general sentiment of the group. While the Gooney bird is not my favourite aircraft I can see the appeal.

The model does look fantastic in the flesh and it is extremely detailed.

I have little doubt that the cost is justified given the low (by injection molded model standards) volume and I'm sure that HPH will sell many if not all of their planned production run.

 

Personally I could n't justify that kind of outlay for a model kit but there are many who are much more commited to the hobby than I and who also have deeper pockets.

 

I can't wait to see some being built.

 

Cheers.

already on HPH eshop, price 750€ incl VAT  :shrug:

if you want open the flaps its plus 75€

there are instructions to download, where you can see all the parts and steps of assembly. Being familiar with HPH kits instructions looks better than in some previous releases, nice adition are reference pics of interior and I like reference to recomended  MRP paints

 

C-47 is one of my all time favourite A/C and I want to have one, but not sure if I want to pay so much money for it (one can buy the upcoming WNW Lanc and HB Liberator with some AM for this money)
