Glenn . Can anyone verify which kit this is a re box of? I thought it was the larger Squadron kit of the Haunebu II. If so you can still get the Squadron boxing of it so don't pay a ransom for a Revell boxing! I also heard it was the ex Hand & Head boxing form Japan? THEY ARE DIFFERENT KITS! (that is the smaller 200mm "Haunebu I" model, the Squadron model is much larger!) If that's the case Revell labeled the model wrong as a "Haunebu II" but it says it's only 20cm on the big box! So i think it's the smaller Hand & Head kit. I brought both some time ago.
Soeren . The Revell kit is the Wave / Hand&Head kit and not Squadron.
If you look at the SCM kit history you can already see it
Revell didn't decided to stop this kit.
They just gonna change the text and re-release it after that again!

Glenn . Thanks Soren that means Revell put it into a box twice the size of the Hand & Head release! Which sold for a lot less and called it the "Haunebu II" not "Haunebu" which is a lot smaller! (The Squadron Haunebu II is over 45cm wide!) Both items are sci-fi "what if" but a bit of fun to add to the Luftwaffe '46 collection!

Günther Debiscop Sören: from the Frankfurter Algemeine Zeitung: A spokesperson from Revell said on Monday that the company will stop manufacturing and distributing the product, adding that criticism of it is "absolutely justified."
Sitting Duck Oh damn! I wanted to buy one. But Revell (used to) have all sorts of Luft '46 aircraft in their catalog. I wonder if we'll see a re-release of the Go 229 or any other of their kits..

Glenn . Revell JUST REBOX IT AS SCI-FI, PROBLEM SOLVED!!!! Oh and can we please have a Nazi Moon base next! please! And some Dinosaurs with laser cannons too! Then you can get back to making REAL STUFF like a new C-130 Hercules in 1/72 or maybe get that An-225 released!!!!
Philippe It is also strange that Revell added "II" after Haunebu....

Selman Yarar Revell reboxed the Flying Saucer Haunebu II tooled by an unknown korean company Hand&Head with an incredible high price of 50 Euros (about 58 USD). There are 69 parts in this kit, >10 of them are not used and to my shock this is a snap kit (which is not written on the box) . I've made a complete dry-fit with not even a drop of glue nor piece of tape. It took me about half an hour to make it, 20 minutes of it were releasing the parts from the spues and cleaning/filing. (OK you'll need a little bit more for puttying and painting to finish it). First of all a kit with 69 simple parts can never be Level 4. This one is something for a 10 year old kid. A snap kit would be level 1, any kit below 100 parts is max. level 3. Why in the world did they put level 4 on this box and there's no info about being a snap kit? To be able to sell it to a high price? Are we supposed to pay for the high tooling costs of the koreans? What kind of a stupid marketing strategy is this? Sorry, but i feel scammed...
