1/24th scale Colonial Blackbird Resin model Kit
Made by Kip Hart
This is the same kit being sold at JT-Graphics under the name of Howling Wolf. I don’t think many of these are being sold for $200 dollars at JT-Graphics so Kip is selling them on E-bay. They are being sold as a reserve auction. Kip has sold a couple of them and the one that was sold before the one I purchased sold for $170 and I figured that I would try to win the next one.
Not knowing how high the reserve price was set, I placed a bid of $125 and it was below his reserve price. The last day of the auction I checked and I still had the highest bid. The next day I checked my E-mail and I was amazed to see a second chance offer from Kip at the amount of my highest bid.
Needless to say I quickly signed in to my E-bay account and paid for it. The floor Crain and the diagnostic computer are offered with the kit on E-bay. If I purchased both items from JT-Graphics it would have cost $235 dollars and that is without shipping.
If anyone is interested, check out the current auction on E-bay. Maybe you can get lucky like I did. http://www.ebay.com/itm/121086229196?ssPageName=STRK:MESINDXX:IT&am...
This is a photo of my new Blackbird. To the right of the blackbird is a 1/32 scale Moebius Viper Mk-II fuselage to give you an idea of the difference in sive from 1/24th to 1/32nd. It's quite a difference.
Here's another photo showing the size difference between the pilots that come with each kit. Wow, what a difference! ! ! !
Kip has also sold a couple of his 1/24th scale Cylon raiders as well, but at this time he only has the Blackbird listed.
