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.
