Did anyone who pre-ordered from Andy's Hobby Headquarters receive an email today asking for the balance of their order to be paid?

I placed a $50 deposit and the remainder due is $549.99 and $33.00 tax.

 

I have until May 31st to pay it. Apparently they expect the kits to arrive the first week of June.

Hi, Scott. I received the same email and finished my payment. The cost included free shipping. Looking forward to this one!

Well, if you put it like that, yes. I had to wait 4 months for a package from Hannants via Royal Mail, so I guess your 100% correct DonH.

Regarding the still advertised 7 - 21 business day air mail service offered by Lucky Model, I placed a purchase with air mail delivery mid March and while it apparently was shipped the following day, the tracking number with Jersey Post still shows "Awaiting item from sender". Indeed, as far as I can tell, it is still in Hong Kong and two messages to Lucky Model have made me none the wiser.

what are the chances of border model doing another epic 1/32 or lager bomber kit? maybe b-29?


I would say about zero.  The only reason they got this kit was that they bought the almost completed WNW mold from another company, probably at a very cheap price.  Pretty much all of the design and development, plus most of the mold, was already done, so they didn’t have to pay the real cost of those items.

My Lanc had the "Sender is preparing item for posting" status from May 5th until today, where it's actually been posted, processed, and "Process completed for departure" from HK, I've been using HK Post tracking.

I would imagine if they get a good return out of this Lancaster hey may be interested but remember what they are putting out here is a kit where a lot of the hard yards had already been done.  I would guess the answer would be 'highly unlikely'. I am willing to be wrong though.

Looking at the online build of the BM Lancaster, It's obvious that the expertise and attention to detail exemplified by Wingnut Wings 

has been a major design influence. A B-29 may be a possibility, but it'll be of a half-baked (in comparison) standard like the other big Lanc, B-24 and B-17.

 

For improved standards and innovation, it looks like Kotare are the company to watch. Now if Revell were to rebox/market those kits as they appear ....
