Default Skymarks Supreme A380 (1:100)

The U.S. distributor's website indicates that both the Airbus & Qantas liveries are now in stock. I would expect deliveries to start next week.

My Qantas A380 arrived this afternoon and I cannot begin to tell you my disappointment!! It is a cut below the other Skymark Supremes! The winglet to wing connection has cracks, on both wings, partially filled with paint. There are spots on the wing. Don't ask about the fuselage, I never even bothered to unpack further! Apparently these models were made in China and seem to have the quality control issues endemic to the hobby.

Hopefully, I just happened to get a bad one, but given the shipping costs, I would not suggest buying one sight unseen. As both a dealer and collector, I have been anticipating this model for quite some time, but I am hugely disappointed.
