I am just back from the Intermodellbau event in Dortmund,
and I took the opportunity to get a glimpse of the new
large VIIc kit they (revell) are planning to release.
It is expected to be on the market in November (before
christmas..). Price will be around 50 euro's.
BUT the models shown in the showcase has NOTHING to
do with the actual kit. It is a scratchbuild model of a
VII-b built by some hobbyist and put on display just
for giving an impression of the size of the thing.
Revell was kind enough to put this info on a card next to
the model. Seems like the only thing "real" is the box the
kit will be shipping in.
So, management summary : The model shown is NOT a
prototype of the kit itself.
Let's just hope the kit will not be another "lionfish"
