Strange..............traded for one on LSP here then I found out our local Hobby Town got a couple in, but predictably they sold out within a day or two. You would think at the normal CONUS type price point this thing seems to be on that if available, the distributor (s) would do everything in their power to get as many out into the market as they could.

Im not sure if this is a Hobbico thing or not, or even if the Chap 11 has anything to do with it, but from all Ive read including a memo from ROG themselves, it didn't seem that it did.

Sounds like it’s simply a popular kit that they didn’t make enough of them in the first run. For those that haven’t found one yet at the online vendors, have you signed up for email notifications when they are back in stock? Most of the big shops have this option. That’s how I managed to find one of mine.

Yep, I agree with that Dave. They either didn't foresee the demand

or there was some other limiting factor. I did sign up for the email

notification but I think that's only worth while if you're 'not' pre-ordering.

Since I pre-ordered, I got a charge notification instead and another

email the same day saying my order had shipped.

 

They'll be back, don't worry :)

I just ordered another one and was told they are backordered so don't know when that will come in.  But hopeful!

I picked my kit up and one to mail out to Clunkmeister last Friday at my LHP. Ernie ordered and got the last one right after someone else took 3 home (an eBay scoundrel no doubt). Owner has more on order but we shall see. The first batch he had a firm delivery date that came true. Next batch he was not so sure of a date.

< Packing Ernie's kit for the post reminded how much I loathe the Revell boxes>

I have had a few on pre-order since early December, but nothing yet. The local hobby towns got two, I called to put a hold on one, drove out to pick it up, then was going to go get the second, but they sold it.

Wouldn’t count on them being is in late March after speaking to manager at Hobbico today. They owe a lot of people a lot of money, based on my conversation it will be a miracle if Hobbico survives. I guess it comes down to who will buy Revellogram. Chapter 11 maybe chapter 7 very soon.
