Just got the invoice and I had reserved an Enterprise while I was on the phone and it say's The retail on the E is $999.99 so we'll have to wait and see if that's the right price. Also it's the CV-6 not the 65. YT is CV-5 and the E is CV-6. Yorktown Class aircraft carrier.Just talked with my dealer and he has the Yorktown which I ordered and the Enterprise will be out in June. He also says the Titanic will be out or maybe it is out and it's new in 1:200 also and retail is a bit over $600. The YT is $479.95 and the E is not know to him yet but prolly about the same as the YT.
You cannot deny the grand daughter a card board guitar no matter what. At least it went to a worthwhile project. Ha!I ordered mine from Freetime Hobbies, Ga (USA) and it was $319.00 pre order and is $329.00 (Free shipping) now and they did still have some in stock. I"ll have to get mine down and look at it, but I know the hull is over 4ft. 52 inches sounds familiar, but I will look at it tomorrow and let you know. I was surprised at the free shipping as the box is huge and the weight was 16+lbs. My wife misunderstood what I said about the box it came in and used the actual top cover with the picture of the ship to cut out a cardboard guitar for our young grand daughter. Was not happy about that. I am using the cover to my Bismarck to cover the box now as I'm almost done with that build.
You are the first to claim this kit. Please provide name, address, etc. Do you have access to Paypal? I usually use FedEx but that choice is up to you. This box is 51"x 18" x 6" and a bit heavy. Looking forward to your response.I will buy this if still available!!
