This model was originally announced well over a year ago.....maybe even two. So unless there is a 're-announcement' coming from JetX (I havent heard anything like that lately) then I would not get too worked up about it.

This model was announced back in 2000. I've had mine on pre order since Aug of 2000. Still waiting to hear some news on when it will eventually be released. I'd like to see a twin pack of this with all the different schemes PSA had on the 146.

OK here is the 2nd part of the story. Models stay on preorder forever with some retailers who dont understand the situation and think it is ok to keep collectors hanging by a thread.

Best advice is to not believe everything you see on eztoyz. There are much more reliable people out there when it comes to model production status.

Guess I should have learned the first time I delt with them, EzToys. They charged me $10 more on an order than what was originally quoted. WOn't be buying there anymore.

Looks like it would be an exciting release if it did make the stores but using Eztoyz as a source is like taking plastic surgery tips from Michael frikking Jackson.

I have come to find Eztoyz to be THE most unreliable source for information in this hobby and it's doing nothing short of damaging his business.

Beginning to question EZTOYZ myself since the Jet-X Eva Air Cargo 747 has been on preorder for nearly one year.

Beware!!!!

From what I heard in LA, this model will be coming out just after never.

Too bad, too.

Question

Does anybody know if it has been produced yet and is simply kept in storage like the JX-727 Jellybeans?
