ordered Camel/LVG. Same price as WNW shows on site and free shipping after bringing the total up to $200 by throwing in a few supplies.

I received notice that my Camel had shipped within an hour of ordering it!

And they're gone!  That didn't take long.  :)

I'm sure there will be another batch along soon though.

Is this a time warp we are witnessing here as WnW site still says 'Coming Soon'  :D.

Hope that means to a supplier nearer to those of us too far away from Sprue Bros to take advantage. Enjoy your kits guys - I have a feeling we'll be waiting a bit longer over here :(

Speculation going around is that SB had a small introductory stock air freighted, with a larger stock of kits on a ship to follow in a few weeks. Besides the Camels, they were only showing two other kits.

Uschi is telling folks his shipment is arriving in Germany March 15 (by container), suspect other destinations are similar...

SB had around 15 of each kit in stock. They all sold out within hours, except for the non Camel releases.

I did check them out, but the free shipping is US only and when I started to add stuff to the order (Masterclub rivets and bolts) they were charging an addition $5 for each bolt set, plus $19 for the Camel. I scrapped the order and will wait to see who else makes an offer. I still have my order with Hannants and will have to wait and see what the shipping is like.

On another site they had a code for a discount on Lots of Models. I tried it and was comparable to what I would have paid on Sprues Brothers so I ordered just one kit and no extra stuff. Pity because I wanted to get more of the Masterclub rivets and bolts but they are so small and so light they could have just been put in the box without adding anything to the shipping. Not sure how they calculate the shipping costs but it will deter me from ordering stuff from just one place

If that's true about the added shipping, get your Masterclub stuff from http://www.euromodelshop.ch -- if that's all you order, Daniel will send the stuff to you in an envelope first class.
