That's just being distributed by Merit, I'm pretty sure. HK Models makes those from the (formerly) WingscaleXL molds.

I'm pretty sure that I'll be getting one of the "J's" 8)

Who knows? Maybe this'll bring down the prices on
those old Aurora '25s.

I think I'd rather have the newer tooling. The Auroras are rare enough now that you're still going to be paying for that rarity regardless of the Merit's existence. It's not the same as the Revell Raiden, of which many more turn up on ebay than the B25 kit.

I think I've only seen two of the B25's on ebay in the last six years as opposed to nearly a hundred Raiden.

I'm sure you're right but, I had one of the Aurora's back in the early 70's and
it would be fun to bolt one together again. :D

Anyone who has bought one of these, can you suggest a place that is cheaper than the $180 ones on ebay and that accepts PayPal?

Looking for the glass nose version.
