Revell update
Posted by jeffpez on Wednesday, May 30, 2018 9:24 AM

I just spoke with customer service at Scale Hobbyist in an effort to get a replacement part that was missing  for the Revell pirate ship and was told they expect Revell Germany, the surviving company after the bankruptcy, to begin shipping products again by late July. Apparently what was Revell and Monogram in this country are now completely gone and will all be part of Revell Germany. They also expect Monogram prices to go up around 20% to better match the prices in Germany.

We have already had a couple of Revell new releases in the last few weeks, so maybe the July date is for products being shipped to the US. But at least they are back up and running.

Back on May 10th Free Time Hobbies also put out an update:

"Revell was recently sold and Revell USA (Monogram) and Revell Germany are in the process of being combined into one company which will be located in Germany.  When this happened all Revell product shipments stopped. 

We did receive our first, small, shipment of PT-109 kits (which is why some customers have received the product) but of the hundreds we bought, we only received a few dozen to begin with. 

Our second (of several) shipments, that was stopped, has started moving again and we should receive it in the next week or two and we will continue to fulfill pre-orders. We can not, at this time, guarantee how many we will be getting on this next shipment. We will fill pre-orders in the order they were placed until all pre-orders are filled.

If you have not pre-ordered one, please do so but understand that it might not be filled until after the new Revell company is completely set up.  From what we understand, these next few shipments that are headed to us (and the rest of the USA) will be the last Revell product that is available for several months until the new company is completely set up for business."
