revell 2020 1st quarter releases

Recommended Posts

To be fair, I was mostly inspired by @Der Lingener 's earlier post.

 


Of course, a more specialised modelling shop will have smaller short-run marques but bulk dependent stores won't.

I'm putting my 'casual modeller' 🎩 on and do some research.

 

1) - Everything I need in one box excluding paint in the LHS. 

2) - Order SH kit online somewhere, add shipping & handling + have someone tell me about Syhart in the first place (there's a stretch) AND order online & add more shipping and handling costs.

 

 

By the way, over here, price difference for the very hard to get (I tried) academy PBY-5 in a Revell boxing is 5€.

You can see where I'm going with this, probably?

 

The  'casual modeller' 🎩 will go for option 1. 

Inclined to agree with you. If possible I prefer to buy everything at once and, in the same place.

It doesn't make much sense (to me anyway) to try and source a specific kit and decal sheet from possibly two separate sources, with two sets of postage and then end up with maybe no "saving" at all.

That's a false economy in my book. As for "substantially more than Academy original prices" and, "languishing on shelves", I'm not necessarily convinced of that. 

I'm my local shop, the previously mentioned OV-10 and Catalina are on sale at £17.99 and, £21.99 respectively. I go by shop price and, not RRP as, the latter is usually higher.

As for "languishing on shelves" as one comment put it. Where is the evidence? If indeed they are "languishing" could it not be as much to do with subject choice as price?

As far as the price for the Mirage F1 goes I would agree that £25 is on the high side but, I wouldn't be using Hannants as a guide. My local shop has it at £22.49.

Down to personal choice as always. I find Revell prices, for the most part to be pretty reasonable.

What, £ 17.99 for the OV-10? The academy kit in my part of the world sells for €10-12... 

 

£17.99 for the OV-10, £21.99 for the PBY and, £22.49 for the Mirage F1. That's respectively €21,€26 and,€27

Just for comparison, in my neck of woods I can find OV 10 for €8 (Academy)/€18 (Revell),  PBY for €16.5 (Academy)/€26.15 (Revell) and Mirage for €16 (SH)/ €23 (Revell) (prices quoted from the same eshop, all in stock).

On the shelves of my LHS, where you can see five RoG OV-10A's at the very same place as when they first appeared.

Which, by itself does not prove that price has anything to do with it

Ps truth be told I wouldn't want an OV-10 even if they were giving them away! 😅

Maybe a -D version, although I get why Revell have the OV-10 seeing as they used them as target tugs (with a jet engine on top)
