More product photos and details posted on Toshihiko Shimizu's Facebook page.

[1/72 Saunders Roe Princess prototype ver. 170$ plus shipping charge ]
My kit have these following characteristics.
movable flaps
movable tip floats
openable passenger door
separable beaching chassis which use side very small neodium magnets
separable mainwing to save space after completion
separable bow hatch
separable cargo door
As for interior, after part of upper deck and whole lower deck is empty because I could not get enough information to design prototype ver. In the future version, I would renovate when I get enough data, of curse. As for planned airliner verion, full interior except for cargo bay with multi color fabricated passenger seats!!.

3D printed parts have texture and rough surface. ABS is shrinkable material. When assembling, small crack or gaps may occur. Putty and instant glue will be necessary when assembling as well as normal glue. I made an effort to minizmize them. To compensate texture problem, I include sanding paper set. I did not include outer surface sticker this time to save price.









Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Jaw = dropped. Wow. What a kit!

And a Beverley to come? I anticipate a lot of happy Brit modellers.

$170 doesn't sound very much compared to spending $50 on a 1/72 Dodge Ram. How can he make it so cheap ?

It's printed via FDM so it will be cheaper than a standard SLS resin print that has much finer surface detail. The printing artifacts/lines can be removed with careful application of Acetone and sanding (on ABS models) but he doesn't recommend it, or with the resin primer that he used.
