On current rate approx £166.
Unless Mr Revell pips them at the post
Dream come true for me but the rivet counters at Hyperscale are out in force

I just wish I could see the B-25 in the box BEFORE I buy, and BEFORE they are all sold, so I can make a purchasing decision based on how far this company's products are removed from Trumpeter/Hobbytoss the overall kit is. I.e. fidelity of scale, finesse of moulding with regard to overall presentation etc.

As a dedicated 1/32 scale modeller I'm amazed by this but it is far too big for me, I would have to build it and bin it, shame.
Yeah - Just imagine - Superdetail, resin accessories, photoetch, super paint job, aftermarket decals, 15 months hard grind, then have a street party and take to it with a chainsaw and sledgehammer.... then hara-kiri????????

I already have two versions of Doug Feeney's ID Models B-17s in the loft - a very early one with the original fin and an F/G.
This will make things a *lot* quicker - and I think I may need two - one as a G and one to convert back using the ID Models back end

I could be tempted by a B25 if they did the 8 gun hard nose version.
You mean like these:
North American B-25J Mitchell "Gunship"
North American B-25H Mitchell "Gunship"
Liberator would be ace - but I'm really looking forward to the Invader (I have a started Vietnam B-26K vac somewhere in the loft)!
