  3. Hey, you can help by buying some of these hotcakes as well.
  4. Well, About prices. The list of 2022 novelties of Revell we're now discussing about came with a message to the retail from Revell which said: "Dear valued Partner, As you may have heard from the news/media the situation on the global procurement markets continue to be tense. Cost prices for raw materials and components, relevant for our product assortment, such as ABS, polystyrene, paper, copper, metal, and semiconductors have double digit percentage increases. In addition, cost for logistics (especially for imported goods), for energy and for labour in the manufacturing countries have significantly increased or even exploded. As a consequence, we are forced to amend our prices further. For details please see price list effective 01.01.2022 attached. Orders received prior to December 31, 2021, with requested shipping date not later than February 2022 will be invoiced at current prices. We regret to give you no other information at this point, but economic constraints and our commercial responsibility do not allow any other course of action. We thank you for your understanding and look forward to a continued partnership in the future. Best regards ppa. Marko Rachner Sales Director International " This is then after a price rise last September of around 10% So thinking that Revell will release a new B24 in 1/48 just because the price seems steep is wishful thinking i am afraid. And now you know not to wait too long when you want to buy some Revell kits. You have been warned!
  5. Oh BTW the 1/48 Liberator is the B24D variant.. Not the -J
  6. On that listing Gary got there is lots of NEW like the Monogram 1/48 Liberator. With Revell in my experience NEW is when there are new decals and a new boxing around it... I can see half the ICM range (O-2, AH1, B26 Invader, Tiger Moth etc) as well as Zvezda (BN757-200 Iron Maiden Livery ) Yak-130 and B787-9 (Lufthansa) All Mentioned NEW. Also NEW is the Hunter FGA9 1/144 and a 1/72 A400 with RAF markings... So lets se what will realy be NEW !
  7. Well, if you call something a "wiffle-up" it can easily be explained in a few sentences to us mortals as to why you came to such a conclusion and what your proof is. Otherwise we can think of it as an opinion as we have seen, heard and read so many of.
  8. Czech Master resin updated and upgraded many oftheir kits in the early 2000's and also put decals in them. The old ones could be recognised by being an a sealbag and usualy green resin, the new ones were boxed, cream resin, often upgraded with new parts and often totaly redone and included an elaborate instruction sheet with nice decals too. These days only a very limited amout of CMR kits are still available through selected outlets. After Petr Buchar sold the company economics forced the new owners to slim down. The release of injected kits of the Buccaneer and the Vampire T11 by Airfix did not help either but such are the risks.
  9. Topgun makes a series of Mi14PL, -PS and -BT's in scale1/72. Nothing is known of a 1/48 scale kit
  10. According to Taras Karabyn of Armory : 'delayed due to technical reasons - we have 2 molds damaged, repairing them" So it should still be in process
  11. A late version Anson MK21 was planned by Lift Here models and was to include Dutch markings. Decals for these were already printed. However when Lift Here quit the kitmaking business the project went to Air Cast resin. The are planning to release the kit in future but due to several economic reasons there is no projected release date. Same goes for the DH90 Dragonfly which was to include Dutch and Danish markings. The decals for the DH90 were printed too. Also a FK55 in bright red was envisaged but that was AFAIK not taken further than preliminary design. Th Fokker S13 eventually transpired to be Lift Here's last own kit.
  12. Spoke with Danny Coremans about this recently (Less than 3 weeks ago) and the transport costs of getting the stuff to europe from China is currently to high so for the time being it has been put on Ice.
