Where is this available for purchase in the USA? I checked Freetime Hobbies and couldn't find it available or for pre-order on their pre-order site.

Any other US retailers who will be carrying this kit?

.

I have now received my batch of these from Hong Kong, and it is a remarkable little model - the photos hardly do it justice.

If you get the chance to look inside the box, take it - the detail is fascinating.

I am hoping that Flyhawk will do "the Toothless Terror" and the straight funnelled sub-class.

Dear flyhawkmodel,
Why didn't you put on PE list the 8-pompoms & 4-rd pompoms like you did in your set for "Hood"? Do you plan to issue some special edition of "Naiad" with more aftermarket?

Wow, that looks nice. I'm mostly doing 1/350 these days, but when I get back to the smaller models, this one looks just too good to pass up!

Got mine today and all I can say is, following on Derfflinger and Luetzow, Flyhawk has taken I-M plastic kits to a whole new level.... :worship_1:

I'm almost scared to take the sprues out of the plastic!! :oops: :thumbs_up_1: :thumbs_up_1:

Haven't seen any mention this feature of the kit (its not in the review in this site) - if it has been, forgive me, but....

All those small sprues - GB01 - 14 - are slotted to stack perfectly one atop the other - a great way to keep them organized and accessible on the work bench! Awesome!! :thumbs_up_1: :thumbs_up_1:
