Re: eBay Preorder Question

I usually avoid pre-ordering through Ebay for this reason.

If the model has be released to the other retailers I'd submit a ticket to Ebay

If not, Might just have to wait. Releases get delayed sometimes.

Re: Antonov AN-225 1/400 Model

Get one if you can. They are great models. All diecast construction which is a little rare for Herpa now-a-days. It's a pretty large model even for 1/400. Noticeably outsizes the 747-800 in the cabinet it sits next to. Here are some pictures. https://photos.smugmug.com/Model-Collection-/Aviation-Col...
