WHAT IS MSRP?
MSRP or Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price is the list price of a manufacturer's products. Almost all hobby products have a list price. Some call it the "top line" price. This price should be consistent for all dealers offering products for sale online.
However, there are some unscrupulous dealers (SEE ABOVE EXAMPLE) that inflate the MSRP to allow them to show larger discounts when they run sales promotions. This is why it is so important to compare MSRP prices before you place your order. You can always count on the fact that Internet Hobbies will never adjust the MSRP on any product. It's not how we do business.
Don't fall for their bogus MSRP tactics. If you do, you'll probably be tricked into thinking you are getting a better deal only to find out you paid more.
ALWAYS REMEMBER, YOUR BEST DEAL IS AT INTERNET HOBBIES
The newest kit from Hong Kong Models of their Boeing B-17 scale is coming in the 4th quarter of 2019 - but this one is not in 32nd scale!
So most people would think that a new B-17 from Hong Kong Models would be in 32nd scale. We have been thinking this is coming for a while now, and we can say that this all-new tooling 48th scale B-17G (Early Production) is on the way in the last quarter OF 2019.
HK is promising this 1/48 kit with easy and quick to build, very detail surface detail and sensible engineering, with the design concept of this kit combining HK's past experiences with the 32nd scale kit along with the same detail, simple but detailed build and engineering.
We are very excited about this new B-17G for quarter scale modelers. We believe this kit will be the definitive model of this famous aircraft.
Tamiya has now confirmed their new-tool kit of the Lockheed P-38®F/G Lightning in 1/48th scale is on the way. It is without question that the P-38 is a unique fighter from World War II and it’s been one of the most popular subjects in this scale. Tamiya has promised that extensive research and ever-evolving mold-making techniques are being used to devise this kit. Tamiya’s designers also promise that they have gone to great lengths to achieve the best fitting and most accurate P-38 Lightning F/G model assembly kit to date. We are sure this kit will adorn modelers collections and be the topic of discussion in the various model contests across the globe for the foreseeable future.
The Lockheed P-38 Lightning in history:
This WWII fighter was a daring design with twin booms and a piston engine in each, plus a central nacelle which housed the cockpit and armament (machine guns and cannon in the nose). Introduced in June 1941, the aircraft went on to be used extensively in the Pacific through WWII.
Pre-orders are a very important part of the hobby industry today. Now that many hobby manufacturers are announcing products well in advance you may need to pre-order the products you want. Hobby companies rely on these pre-orders to determine their production requirements. They usually do not go into production until they receive the required amount of pre-orders from their distributors and dealers. Many of these products are released in limited quantities, especially the first run. Placing your pre-order with us will make sure you get your item as soon as it is available.
As a hobby dealer, Internet Hobbies is required to place our orders for new releases often months in advance. We are required to make a firm commitment to our suppliers so we can receive the merchandise upon release. When you place your pre-order for these products, we also require you to commit to us. We achieve this by charging your credit card or PayPal upfront. By doing this, we know you’ll want the item when it arrives.
When it comes to future merchandise, we have no control when these products are actually released. There are many reasons why an advance release may be delayed. Rest assured, if you have a pre-order for a future product, you will receive it as soon as it comes in.
