I received the following in an email from Freetime Hobbies. I thought that some of you might be interested.

Status of Revell Products

We have been getting several emails and phone calls concerning the status of Revell products, in particular the new PT-109 pre-orders.

Revell was recently sold and Revell USA (Monogram) and Revell Germany are in the process of being combined into one company which will be located in Germany. When this happened all Revell product shipments stopped.

We did receive our first, small, shipment of PT-109 kits (which is why some customers have received the product) but of the hundreds we bought, we only received a few dozen to begin with.

Our second (of several) shipments, that was stopped, has started moving again and we should receive it in the next week or two and we will continue to fulfill pre-orders. We can not, at this time, guarantee how many we will be getting on this next shipment. We will fill pre-orders in the order they were placed until all pre-orders are filled.

If you have not pre-ordered one, please do so but understand that it might not be filled until after the new Revell company is completely set up. From what we understand, these next few shipments that are headed to us (and the rest of the USA) will be the last Revell product that is available for several months until the new company is completely set up for business.

Thank you for your understanding.

That next to last sentence is disappointing but thanks for the update Jim. I suppose coming up we'll be seeing some kits on ebay at outrageous prices!
