JMS-  I am a B5 fan and an avid sci-fi model builder. I have a question
regrading the Starfury model. Why all the delays? I have heard it is going
to be released this week, next month, and/or in Feb. Which is it? Any help
would be greatly appreciated.

Next, would it be possible to post some GOOD reference shots of the
Starfury on the Web site? Those of us model builders would love to see
some shots of the wing, engine, cockpit, etc. Thanks

Thank you in advance for your answers. And lastly, thank you for a
wonderful story. You have had me from the pilot and I have enjoyed the

The finished model just came in this week, with full shrink wrap, box, pieces,
everything...very nice.  There were some delays that came from our side, as we
worked to make it more authentic and more in keeping with how they look on
screen.  Revell was happy to cooperate, even if it delayed things a bit...with
the result that it's a better product.  (Among the things we asked for: to
reposition the forward guns, alter the tilt of the engines, texture under the
wings as well as on top, that sort of thing.)

Basically, I'd rather have it *right* than have it Tuesday.
