A sign of the times ... no listings yet on evilBay. There was a period where a number of Japanese vendors would have adverts up weeks before the actual release date seeking pre-orders. Not any more.

Radjapan has them for 990 yen each. I really hope MYK do some decals for these so I can finish my Eduard XIV conversion.

Already ordered a couple of Spitfires.
Specials: there was a Spitfire (not too different from 1-b but with some kind of nose art). The Special Me-163 is actually a Shusui. I haven't been able to check it properly so I don't know if it's just a regular '163 in Japanese markings or a true J8M; you still get a kubelwagen and a Kettenkraftrad with the Japanese Shusui!. However, both specials are sold out.

From what I can tell the Shusui is not an actual J8M airframe, just an orange Me-163.
I'm looking forward to seeing some details of the moulds before deciding if they are an improvement over my Popy Komet. The promotional shots looked a bit short on height for the canopy and rear deck, but that may have changed in the production.

Looking forward to seeing some pictures and feedback on this set when people receive it. I dont think I will order a full box but may pick up a few individual kits if Ebay prices are not too bad.

Just to let you know that the lottery special (200 only) is just a decal sheet for FR.Mk.18 No.451. You also need the #1D model to make
it.

Mr Yamada over at MYK decals just tweeted his unopened box that arrived. Hopefully we'll see one of his photo reviews soon.

The red/orange Me-163 isnt the special, its one of the standard pieces (Späte's red Komet - 310050/V41/PK+QL), the special is an olive drab IJN "pretend-shushi"
