I had never seen this before. Really looks neat. Not terribly unreasonable for eBay...

I figured you weren't fully awake yet. :P So much for the great price. He had two and sold both! There are others but for somewhat more all the way up to are you kidding me? prices.

Now this dealer has them listed again. He has extended shipping time which means he's basically taking pre-orders, then getting them from a wholesaler over seas. Estimates would be close to a month for shipping. :!:

Buyer Beware!

Studying photos of the model, it appears the promo photos show an airbrushed soft edge camo scheme. The actual production models look to have a hard edge scheme. Not nearly as nice looking. Reminds me of some of the stunts 21st Century pulled with deceptive pictures like on the 190D.

Not horrible but the colors aren't as vibrant either.

Still tempted to get one. If it was just closer to $30 than $50......
