I have the Chaparral 2D Sebring kit. If they don't bring that one back, I may consider letting mine go.

Hi,

Well the Modelers kit fetches a nice price on eBay.  Something to consider now as if they do bring it back, then it would drive down the cost of current Modelers 2D kits.

Actually I think you may be saying this in fact :)

Yeah. The Sebring kit has a resin body. I have that same kit. If someone offered me the right amount for mine, I would consider letting it go. If Modelers brings it back, great, but we will see what happens.

The NiSMO 370Z was released today, and is promptly sold out. HLJ changed it's listing to "Discontinued" without filling everyone's pre-orders. Time will tell if they meant to change it to "Backordered" and someone threw the wrong coding switch as the '15 WRX STi kit is still available. 

The Honda S660 Alpha is the next kit up, just opened for pre-orders today as well, expecting delivery in November. 1999 & HLJ both carry Modeler's, if you want it order it early, or face the prospect of overpaying for it on the secondary market later.

The R380 looks interesting, and hopefully, they bring back all their detail parts.
