I was curious to know when the ModelCollect A-12 Avenger II kit would be available for purchase.  The ScaleMates.com page for this kit says 2020, ModelCollect page also says 2020.  It is now May 2020 and still no A-12 Avenger II kit on the shelf for consumption. 

So I went to the ModelCollect page and made an inquiry to the company asking when will the A-12 Avenger kit be available to purchase.  the reply back was rather quick and is quoted here:

dear sir
     sorry for the trouble, the project is delayed and the goods are not good yet.
best regards

So it looks like we will be doing a lot more of the hurry-up-and-wait shuffle for this kit.  A real shame too since Greg went to great effort to "assist" [by purchasing the Collectaire resin kit] in seeing that this kit would become available as a normal injection moulded plastic kit for the rest of us in the unwashed masses to enjoy. 

Starting to think that Greg needs to purchase a couple more of those resin Collectaire paperweights to make this happen?  :smiley:

Two you say? 

Apparently "the goods are not good yet" is the new catch-all reason for delays.

What's deal on their aircraft and 72nd line?

Their 1/35 AFV are fun, but, quite basic in the details.

I didn't even know Model Collect did 1/35 AFV's! :icon_surprised:

If so, I'd guess that their 1/35 stuff is up-scaled from their more common 1/72 AFVs, which would explain the limited detail of the larger kits.

Found in Hannants Future Releases List




Was posted earlier but will soon be here. Maybe Scale-o-rama to 1/72?



Work in progress ::

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