Re: How long is too long, to wait for a model?
I've waited a year plus for some models - IF200 YAL-1 Airborne Laser, JCW 787-10 House, etc.
That 787-10 finally came in this past week or so. Picked it up today from the shop.
What's annoying is, the only way to get the models is via pre-order, then there is zero communication from the manufacturer to the retailer so there is absolutely no way to know where the hell the model is. The model is announced, you have mere days to get in the pre-order, then you wait anywhere between 1-12+ months, and maybe someday it shows up and suddenly it's your problem to drop everything and come and get it.
Annoying, but it's the only way to get the items you like.
