Hey guys,

As far as you know, who's offering the new Italeri PT 103-class model kit at the lowest cost at present?

Thanks...

Free time hobbies has a great price with cheap shipping. Boat is $139.00, with something like $9.00 to ship. Ebay had a great price at $124.00, but it had a $49.00 shipping tag and was coming from Turkey. Best bet, Free Time Hobbies. Mine is on the way. I hope to have it by next week.

Drew, I second Franks suggestion. Lowest price I've seen since I pre-ordered mine a few weeks ago...and it arrived yesterday. You won't be disappointed!

Hi Drew,
You can buy directly from Italeri for EUR 108 which is roughly $140.26. They have free shipping on orders over EUR 50. At least that's what their web site says as I haven't tried it yet. This would be the best price I've seen delivered.

Freetime does have the best price right now in the US. Sprue Brothers with shipping is about $5.00 more. Freetime has 9 left and they seem to be selling a few each day as I'm watching their inventories. Brandon who owns Freetime is a great supporter of the model ship community as well.

It would be a good bet for you guys to get one from Free Time Hobbies, before they run out. You might not get that good price later on. If not mistaken their ad says regular price is $180.00 ( correct me if I am wrong Dave) so get your today................

Brandon's products are always listed with a discounted sale price. He didn't raise the price after he received his stock. I suspect he'll keep it there but you never know. He has 8 left as I'm typing this. He seems to be selling them down regularly. I suspect if he runs out he'll get more in. Not sure how long this run of the kit will last but I suspect the internet retailers will continue to have them for a while.

I order one also, a big "C" gift for my nephew's 16 year old son. He's a fine modeler, loves WWII 1/35 Tanks and other Armored kits.

I ordered a Vosper for a friend and the 109 for my wife to give to me for XMAS.
From Free Time. Shipped last Tuesday, should see them Monday or Tuesday.

I recommend Free Time or Sprue Bros.-Good People.
