Past weekend, noticed ACADEMY models (South Korea) *new* (confirmed re-pop) kit #12327 of Focke Wulf Ta-183 "Huckebein" MSRP online $21.90 plus $9 P&H to CONUS. Box art shows fly-by of B-17 bomber at altitude. Noticed in past 2-years several 'bagged' ex-AmTech kits originating from South Korea priced $14-$45 ea. Looks like "Huckebein" kit at reasonable price! All the best -Cheers!

Wow great price. I have both the AM and the Tamiya versions. Did not pay anything that cheap but did not pay full retail either.

Still it is good to see that the moulds did not disappear.

Yes, indeed!  I just saw this kit offered on eBay South Korean seller for $21.90 + $9.00 shipping CONUS.
Please do let us all know if you get one and compare the mold quality!  Cheers.

I wish someone would release one in the true scale of devine 1/72.

Have you been poking through my stash? How would you know I have that kit?

Yes you are right of course, it is Amtech and not Accurate Miniatures. Silly me 😀
