This behemoth finally appeared on the Hobby Search website today. Amazingly cheap too at 3,230 yen. :shock:

I know we Brits would have to factor in P&P and Customs, but £22 for all that sounds very, very tempting...

Until I remember why I favour 1/144 and my spatial...er...'limitations'.
Still, I s'pose it could go on a wall, next to my (currently non-existent) Galaxy and big Antonovs! :D
It's my madness that keeps me sane.

Looks nice and crisp.

I could add it the one from the bought in 2009, that still languishes in the un-built pile

and of course the glider version

but at £20GBP that was the price they were flogging the TSR-2s for ...., oh dear

That is unbelievably cheap given the size of this beast. A third the price of the Matuo Kasten resin kit and barely three times the price of Kami de Koro's paper version. Granted, as Merlin says, display space may be an issue but geez, this is very tempting.

Now please don't spoil the anticipation by telling me the postage is more than the kit.
