I E-mailed Hobby People, asking if they planned on getting this plane. The answer was, it was not in their inventory, so it would not be anytime soon. [] I also E-mailed BH directly, hopefully I'll get some kind of response as to where I can purchase one. Anyone have any other info how to get one? [&:]

Thanks Paul

I'd be happy to pay the price if I could find a dealer that will sell it.[] I guess we will have to wait and see if anyone imports this kit. I e-mailed BH but did not receive a response. At least HP replied that it wasn't anytime soon. I'm guessing it will be around the same price as the 90 size Corsair.

I received my plane today. I am pleased with it,as always BH makes a good quality product for the money. I did have some minor shipping damage. One of the wing tips was broken off.A little CA glue,some scrap pieces of balsa and a little filler work. The repair took a couple hours, including time for the filler to dry. I recovered the repair with a small patch of white Ultrakote, the repair is hardly noticeable. I think BH could have packaged the wings better to avoid damage to the wingtips, they are pretty fragile and prone to damage due to their shape. Overall I,m quite happy with the kit.

I'll have to charge the camera, get some pics up asap. I'm hoping I'm not the only crazy person here in the states to order one of these planes!

The box itself is huge 58''x20''x18'' the weight is 10KGS. I'm not sure what that is in pounds, I'm guessing around 16lbs. BH seems to put their models in oversize boxes for shipping, probably to lessen the chance of damage. It is a very pretty airplane, no regrets in buying it. I bought it from Inwood models in the UK.
