Hobby Lobby is the only place in the states that I have seen where you can get one online. They are currently showing it as sold out on their website. I would give them a call and see what they can do for you.

Not that I'm aware of unless a local hobby shop in your area has one. There's no one on EBay or RCGroups currently selling one either. H/L is the only place I've seen NIB Tipsy kits being sold at online.

Best of luck finding one.

which size model would work better when building a scratch pusher prop works best with the the tipsy internals from hobby-lobby?
model 80 or 100?

im going to go 80 because i don't want it too big like easystar or uhu it's only a couple inches smaller than tipsy

I saw it too but it's too expensive and larger than the tipsy i want to keep the plane small.
