It's $500; they announced it back in the beginning of February. No mention of a prebuilt.

Dang, a kit that size....I wouldn't need my glasses. :wink:

When you think of it, that's a lot of model for the price. Some years ago I payed 400 for a 1:16
Tamiya King Tiger kit.

Monkey Depot has had it for a while for $429 pre-order. I'd hate to pre-order something only to find out it is going to cost over $100 to ship from Arizona. Doesn't appear to have many accessories, stowage, no .50 cal. What it will have is a gazillion parts including every individual track link.

Yeah probably will pass

I have 2 of the originals

I was all over their Fire Fly and that one fell through the cracks .

Luckly I was able to get my full deposit back.

FedEx Ground from Mesa, AZ to Ohio is $36. Not as bad as I thought. Of course, it would likely go backwards to California first then make stops in Oregon, Nevada and Montana before finally heading east the way FedEx routes things. :roll:

However, I haven't seriously considered this kit since I haven't finished my 250 halftrack, the 1/6 L4 kit that has become a real headache, nor have I even started my Dragon Jeep that has a thousand little parts. :?

I’ve always been tempted by this kit (and the prebuilt 105mm howitzer version) but I simply have nowhere to put it... I remember TTT saying he put his Dragon Sherman on a cart so he could move it around easily!
