of the limited production run of 100. Cannot vouch for the veracity of that...

In my mind, the more important question is: How many of them will actually be built?

Still, I don't see the price being much cheaper in the future, even on the secondary market, unless you just luck out upon one in a future estate sale....

Swiss cheese or something. Cannot vouch for the veracity of that...

I could never see the point of such posts. Heard where, from whom ?
What is the point of saying things just to be heard ?
Strange days, very strange.

HPH 1/48 B-36

Greg Cooper imports HPH into the US.
My understanding was:

He was allocated 10 out of the total run of 100 kits.
Claims for those 10 kits (in the form of a hefty deposit) were completed in minutes, I know, I watched people sign up as I was considering it.

Greg indicated that the fuselage and wings or an intensive process and mold life was short.

Maybe if HPH sees a larger demand, they may make another run, but I would not bet on it.

Pringles tubes might be the same diameter of the fuselage

As for the wings, you are on your own!

Seriously, it is a beast and I was impressed with the internal details. If I had the space, disposable income etc for something as big I would LOVE to see a Super Connie 😍

Cheers,
Chris

on FB. I figured it MIGHT be of interest to anyone on the fence as to whether they might want to order one. And, I admitted that I was passing along unverified info so that anyone interested could judge for themselves how to take it.

So what was YOUR point, besides trying to look like a smart ***?
