Chatting with other Canauckistan modelers it appears the street price with be very close to if not $1,000.

The Airfix 1/72 Lancaster is around $52. So why buy 1 model when you can get 19.  ;D

Their 1/35 Bf. 109G-6 is out and lists for $85. Even at the discounted price of $65, it's overpriced.

My Bro' builds 1/24 kits, and he said he had money down on a 1/24 scale Lanc'. I think the manufacturer was HK Models and I can't remember what the price of it was. Looking on the internet, Heritage Aviation was in the process of making one too, but that was before Ian shut down most of the operation.

I wonder if they'll make kits of the rest of the sub.  You can put this on tracks and make it a Sea Nazi Tank.

This is a very sensible kit for a Submarine of this scale

Love the box art! ;D

PLA in San Francisco! ;D ;D

From Google Maps it looks like it's meant to be roughly around the Battery 129 entry tunnels off Conzelman Rd, Sausalito, but, as I've never been there, I could easily be wrong. ;)

Just the Chinese reminding the West that "Resistance is Futile!" but putting a Soviet hammer-&-sickle on it, instead of a Chinese/Soviet Red Star.

It's mildly ridiculous with that turret - two guns and a very un-Russian/Soviet external ammo bustle. How are you going to make Russian popcorn with that setup? The hammer and sickle and all the excess gear. make it look too war-gamey. But that aside, it looks like good whiff fodder if you want an articulated tank. Put an M-60 or similar western turret on it...
