Heard they only have 20 or so left..

of the limited production run of 100. Cannot vouch for the veracity of that...
In my mind, the more important question is: How many of them will actually be built?
Still, I don't see the price being much cheaper in the future, even on the secondary market, unless you just luck out upon one in a future estate sale....

Heard they were made of cheese ....

Swiss cheese or something. Cannot vouch for the veracity of that...
I could never see the point of such posts. Heard where, from whom ?
What is the point of saying things just to be heard ?
Strange days, very strange.

The bigger the government, the smaller the citizen.
Just reporting a post I'd seen

on FB. I figured it MIGHT be of interest to anyone on the fence as to whether they might want to order one. And, I admitted that I was passing along unverified info so that anyone interested could judge for themselves how to take it.
So what was YOUR point, besides trying to look like a smart ***?

Passing unverified info ...

...is just as productive as passing gas. Best kept to yourself.
That is my point so stop worrying about my smart ***.
Limited run of 100...

You are right. I spoke to HpH and the B-36 is limited to 100 kits and as of Saturday, they had already sold 80 - that may well have changed by now. But yes, at Scale Model World, they confirmed, that this is a 100 kit release...

Greg Cooper imports HPH into the US.
My understanding was:
He was allocated 10 out of the total run of 100 kits.
Claims for those 10 kits (in the form of a hefty deposit) were completed in minutes, I know, I watched people sign up as I was considering it.
Greg indicated that the fuselage and wings or an intensive process and mold life was short.
Maybe if HPH sees a larger demand, they may make another run, but I would not bet on it.
Not interested for obvious reasons but

I was allowed to hold the display example at Telford on Sunday.
It's bloody enormous!!!
I actually want one

But for $650 I could buy a lot of tubes of Pringles for kid in college.
Pringles tubes might be the same diameter of the fuselage

As for the wings, you are on your own!
Seriously, it is a beast and I was impressed with the internal details. If I had the space, disposable income etc for something as big I would LOVE to see a Super Connie 😍
