New Announcement from Tamiya?

Recommended Posts

Ok, so Tamiya decided to give us decals for a restored P-38 that has some White 33 markings instead of the original White 33 Japanese Sandman II. Thanks for the info.

 

Regards

Jim Barr

 

The White 33 markings included, are for an airframe which happens to still survive and fly today in its original wartime markings. Japanese Sandman was a different White 33

There was more than one White 33.

You are confusing two completely different aircraft.

No, after skyhawk524 original post I understand that there were two White 33 P-38s, one with no nose art and has been recovered and restored and the other was J S II and both assigned to the 39th FS.

Any price info?

 

I suppose the 4,320 in the lower left hand corner is a MSRP in Japanese Yen. About 40 USD at the moment.

From the preview on The Modellings News (LINK!).

I'm heading to Oshkosh tomorrow. I'll take the time to shoot some photos of the P-38 there and it will most likely be flying in the AF Legacy flight.  I'm not a prop guy, but this one inspires me.

You forgot to mention pre-ordering the Best P-38 Kit Ever.    😂

Sigh..... it would have been best if they had just made it in the proper (32nd) scale.     I’m on my second G&T of the night trying to drown my sorrows.

And when can we order this new P-38?

Keep checking HobbyLink Japan’s website.  If this release is like previous Tamiya releases, it will be one of the first places you can preorder and at a good price too!  I preordered three of the new Tamiya Spitfire Mk I’s from them at $26 each.

MegaHobby is listing the pre-order at $68.00, with the regular price at $80.00. That's kinda steep.

With Tamiya, you get what you pay for.   Plus I'm sure it will be found for less at certain retailers once it's out for a bit. 

 

Looks like a truly amazing kit.

Way steep The yen price as shown in some pictures was 4320y.  Most kits in this price point go for about 60.00 here in the USA. One example the new Hummel is 4800y and the Price at Sprue Bros is 51.49 with an MSRP of 64.00 so based on that Mega Hobby seems a really high. I'll wait to put in an order. I,d bet Scale Hobbyist will have it for about 45.00. Now where is that F-16A,B,D.........:thumbsup2:

As in the retail boxing MSRP will likely be higher.

For reference, the 1/35 JGSDF Type 16 white boxing for the early release event at the Tamiya Plamodel Factory was 4,174 yen (incl tax) while the MSRP listed on Tamiya's site for the final retail boxing is 5,184 yen (incl tax)

We are planning on it.  Limited number though and you will need to be at the event. One per person.
