      I was looking for 2 of these kits it doesnít matter what airline as I plan on using aftermarket decals. I saw this site lrichnizm.com has anyone heard of it. They have the AirTran falcons kit listed at $16.97 with free shipping over 50 dollars. It looks too good to be true as this kit is costing about $40.00 plus shipping. I appreciate your thoughts on this. Donít want to make a mistake here.

      It looks like a fake online store. They list two Aurora DC-9 kits, one for 13.73 and one for 23.89! Further on you find decals from Pointerdog and a Zvedza IL-76 for 12.39. Customer service email cxq001@gmail.com strange. domain-status.com shows that the site was created on Aug 8th 2020 and will expire Aug 8th 2021. STAY AWAY!

      AeBal B717 decal would be very nice!

      Thank you for that, you probably saved me quite a bit of frustration. A part of you really wants it to be legitimate but a side of you tells you to be wary. So now the search is on for 2 Eastern Express Boeing 717. Looks like eBay again.

      Hi Jaime,

      I think this is actually Eastern Express on Ebay. Nobody has confirmed that but I recently ordered and received a Convair 880 from this Ebay vendor. It got from Russia to Florida in about two weeks.

      https://www.ebay.com/itm/Eastern-Express-1-144-Airliner-B-717-Delta-EE144124/264258083225?epid=6017982146&hash=item3d87025999:g:wAgAAOSwnklaz4Uq

      Good Luck,

      Mark

      Even cheaper from this Russian shop:

      I-Modellist EE 717 kit

      (1380 rubles is about US$18.40 + postage)

      maccvied.com is another fake online-shop offering B717 for CAD 26.44. Same customer support email as the one above.

      So this site https://i-modelist.ru/goods/model/aviacija/eastern-express/345/47643.html
      Is not legitimate either right? Itís no wonder eBay gets the sales for eastern express. You would think a us distributor would have been available by now.

      Modelist.ru is a reputable model shop. I've bought from them several times with bo problems.
