Okay...Revell's new 1:72 C-54 Skymaster was reputed to be due out in April of this year. It's now May; no kit available through the usual channels. My dealer now says June. Has Revell announced anything?

Sören Reifert Hannants, 1999 and some other shops are saying June / July

Gordon Sørensen This is another kit on my wishlist! I read on Britmodeller (IIRC) that there were fit issues with the test shots and they were "tweaking" the molds.

Kelly Wellington Whoa, now...That is interesting. I've put down less than that at my local hobby shop, whose price matches my preferred online source to within a nickle. Both of those prices are below, sometimes well below, those listed on eBay. All eBay sources indicate that they are coming from Germany; presumably from the factory or marketing agents connected to the factory. This seems to mean that they are releasing kits; one would hope this would mean shipping to regular outlets....Patience.

Kelly Wellington Whoa...lookit those shipping fees. They're as much, if not more than the kit cost!

Kelly Wellington Okay....Today I saw the first listing (on eBay) of this kit for near the expected pricing....$35.90 with $9.95 shipping. Move to your nearest dealer to place your order.

Kelly Wellington I HAZ SKYMASTER...

Gordon Sørensen Squadron has them listed for $39.95
13. September 2015 at 04:02:17
Kelly Wellington Yep. I got mine from the hobby shop and paid $39.99. No shipping costs (or, more accurately, 'shipping included'). It's a huge box; the same size as the Airfix Nimrod kit.

Gordon Sørensen Didn't know the box was that big! Looking forward to seeing your build!

Kelly Wellington Well...It's a bit back in the queue. I'm still focused on craft of the War of the Atlantic....I'm just finishing up an Armstrong Whitworth Whitley in Coastal Command mufti. I haven't built out one of my transport kits since my Constellation got cat-crushed. I still intend to do a Berlin Airlift set of craft, and the Skymaster is a crucial element of that. Up until now, it's been almost entirely reliant upon a Mach2 kit.

Daniel Smith Just picked up one from my local HobbyLobby for $29.99USD with there 40% off coupon. Man there is a lot of plastic in the box. :D
