Default Avro Arrow RL-201 and RL-203

Just went on the Modellers Choice web site. Apparently the owner found stock from factory sealed cases that have been stored for several years. Product has never been out of their master cases. Avro Arrow CWH001 (RL203 orange day glow) and CWH003 (RL201 all white). Each at $209.99 CDN. Limited stock so hurry. Here's a link to the stores web site if you are interested.

Modeller's Choice | Hobby Store | Models | Hobby Supplies

Update:
Just talked to the owner. He got eight of each (minus one CWH001 for me). If he sells all he will be able to get a hold of another eight of each at a future date. He just got them in so don't know how fast they will sell.

Good tip! I just ordered CWH001 too. Since I've already got RL 204 on order, I'll now have all three Arrows! Excellent.

It's actually the "Red Ensign" and not the Ontario flag. The Red Ensign was the unofficial Canadian flag until the Maple Leaf flag replaced it in 1965. The current Ontario and Manitoba flags are similar though.

Love when there are finds like this.

I too called Modellers Choice a few years ago offering to buy any broken or shelf displays of the impossible to find HM Harvards (HA1520 and HA1521).

They had just received a few leftover boxes from the factory that were kept in arrears for warranty and damaged replacements.

I drove up immediately and bought all 13.

Tried to use them as trade bait for other hard to find Canadian diecast.

Sadly, wasn't too successful.

Picked up my CHW001 Avro Arrow CF-105 RL203, day glow orange, today. As promised, in perfect condition, unopened and no blemishes. Looks fantastic next to RL201.

Now hopefully I will have room for RL204 when it comes out.

Oh boy, this is like a diecast double-double

I am going to get right onto picking myself one each of these beauties up. So glad they'll only ship within Canada as it gives Canadians a decent chance of getting these very Canadian models without too much kerfuffle.

These also tie in perfectly with my familial interests. I spoke to my Dad about sharing some of his stories about the fall-out in the CAF from the Arrow (and that spy stuff we were talking about with Spooky and maddogtac) and everything and he says he doesn't suppose it matters too much nowadays and is going to give me some photos to scan and share with you guys.

Expect a post soon

I also think that those of us in Canuckistan who aren't yet, should be considering the use of Derek as their source for military models. Great website, Derek on the other end of the phone, prompt and well packaged shipments. IMHO, the best non commercial [ie non airliner] brick and mortar in the Golden Horseshoe/Province and likely country.
