JY just posted some new model test pics, and they announce the new BIG MO should be available around April.

For their website, they felt sorry about that since they focus on product design and test right now, they will make it better asap.


For being test shot , they are surprisingly good ,I am happy that just holded on the Veryfire Missouri ,because this one looks to be a real winner , lets wait for April release (crossing fingers)

Again, I do not have any knowledge on this subject, but I think this kit is very impressive. The only concern is that it could be expensive. Anyway it may be well worth it! :thumbs_up_1:

Is it just me, or does the bilge keel splay angle not match their drawing? G.

I hope the hand grab rungs on this aren’t all individual parts as some of the pics suggest they may be....

Great stuff! I think they meant "Slide Molded" not "side molded".

Very intricate bilge keel shape regardless... A whole new level of intricacy I would say.

Nothing posted on their website yet. The fact that they are marketing is as a high end kit suggests a higher MSRP.

"This is an extremity detail model kit. Custom for highend/senior players".

Nobody around knows the price, You will only get guesstimates here,just wait like everyone else to know the facts. The model is estimated for the end of March beginning of April,but again ,being a new model some delays may happen,like the Veryfire model was delayed some weeks.

if you want a guess ,I would say about $200 USD MSRP,but that is only fiction.

My skills are fine, it’s the tediousness of installing individual 1/350 hand grab rungs that puts me off... :heh:

At least it looks like the rung mount holes are already formed into the kit, so at least you don't have to drill a million tiny holes, while making sure they're straight... hahaha

Very funny.....

The level of detail will also render all of our already built 1/350 out of place when displayed side by side...

Being a stickler I already see inaccuracies, omissions and errors. From some of the superstructure errors I suspect they used a similar source as trumpeter used for their 1/200 kits
