    Thanx :)

    Scaling classic kits has been one of my mainstays since the mid 70's, so much so that I was labled "Mr. Glandular", as most of my models appeared to be classic kits with "Glandular Conditions"...

    In fact, I think I will start up a new thread to discuss this aspect of the hobby in more general terms than just the OT

    THEY ARE BACK!!!!!

    I've seen them on ebay (well, two anyway).

    The new "Limited Edition Orbital Transports" are trickling out of the Estes factory!

    I have my order in for three...I don't know why I need three! But I just do!...

    Look out for them!

    Sandman, how much did you pay for yours? I am looking at an eBay auction right now. Red Arrow Hobbies wants $16.99 for it plus $6 shipping (This is the "Buy It Now" price.) Although this is not an outrageous asking price, I'd hate to find one at the hobby shop for like $12.99 shortly after buying one online.

    If anyone spots a hot deal on this, please post it here. I am trigger (mouse-click) happy and eager to buy.

    Thanks.

    Eugene,

    The $16.99 price from Red Arrow Hobbies is a good price. The $6.00 shipping is for one or ten same price!

    Unfortunatley I talked to Dave McVeigh at Red Arrow Hobbies yesterday and he doesn't even expect them until Thursday at the earlies.

    They are, I think, gonna be just like the Mercury Redstone...hard to find...then a glut of them.

    I have them on order from my local hobby store for $16.99 so I'll wait.

    Mine came from Hobbylinc for $14.19. I just got the e-mail saying that they've shipped, so they apparently have them in stock.

    I just picked up two at the local hobby lobby, they've got them on sale at half price, all estes kits are half price, but it ends tomorrow.

    They do seem to run that sale about every two to three months though so watch for it.
