      does anyone know, if Revell is willing to rerelease their A321 ?

      watching on ebay, they sell for big money, so there seems to be a big market for them. or where the molds converted to something else like an A320 ?

      in the moment i have one to built in new egyptair colors.

      but i allways try to shoot one on ebay. but dont want to pay the 30€ + 7€ shipping or more.
      if it was rereleased, i think it should cost about 15-20€

      I have been trying to get a few on ebay but I always get outbid and most of them are over price as its getting more and more rear... but even if Zvezda could produce A321s, That would be wonderful....I too am in need of some Revell A321s not paying no big money for it... Wish they release this kit again..

      Yes, it would be nice to know if Zvezda has any intention of doing 319s and/or 321s. The `rule' is that they won't until at least one person has chopped up a [320] kit. So if someone would like to oblige....?

      zvezdas A320 by far is not 100% accurate. There are a lot of mistakes in the sprues. Right now you can reproduce a nice 320 with a kit bash of revell and zvezda. i guess they also wont change to much on the 321. So in the end, keep all your revell kits, they are much better than some of you think!

      I don't have the Zvezda kit, what's wrong with it?

      I hope they don't forget to change the flap parts as the A321 has double slotted flaps (an extra set of smaller flaps coming out of the big ones)

      Oh my... you've done it now! You can't criticize Zvezda's airliner kits! They're all perfect (unless you know something about the real airplane).

      Their 787 is a comedy of errors. Even their Il-62M, while very nice, has some pretty obvious errors, despite their having cooperation from the Ilyushin OKB.

      windows, APU intake, vortex generators, IAE engines, flaps, just to name the most obvious. the one from revell is better. optimum will be achieved with a kitbash of both..

      never said noone is allowed not to critize the kits, but sometimes i takes all the fun building it. never the less, i agree with you, that there are allways minor or major improvements to be done.
