Actually, it was just shown as "Arrived" on the 5th...

Response to Mr Sprue Bros, and his crew, can keep a secret! Slow boat ....

The 4th was the "official" release date, and SB had a note on their site that tracking had the arrival date as 12/5. It was already available on WNW 12/4 (Sunday night here, International Date Line and all). No need for subterfuge.

When the Jennin Stahltaube was released, it took a couple weeks to show up at SB. I emailed them on release, and that shipment WAS held up in Customs. Sounds like Sprue Brothers was ahead of the game this time.

As far as "keeping a secret", it's probably in the terms of their agreement with WNW. How about the lucky people who build the models for display on their website? They are in several different countries. I'm sure if they ever let the cat out of the bag, it would be their last build for WNW, but it must still be tempting!

P.S. - I also always thought the Dolphin was particularly ugly, but it does have its fans. After seeing it on Wingnuts' site, I may be leaning more towards purchasing someday. It would help complete my Sopwith collection, although I missed the Pups. Now, if they ever release a Strutter, that's a no-brainer for me!
