Re: Chasing PHANTOMS
Rick: I made the promised trip to my LHS - CRM Hobbies - an awesome shop much like Colpar in Denver or Venture in Chicagoland - in the city of St. Louis. Went back into the warehouse - found the ship collection he had purchased, some carriers - but sadly, no boxings with Phantoms. He had the Revell Battle of Midway Yorktown class kit, an Independence (with the older air wing), and an FDR. Sorry! He eBays these kind of kits frequently, but will generally sell them to me at about $15 to $30, which for an OOP kit is quite fair IMHO.
I'll keep my eyes and ears open though, and Chris (the Owner) knows what I'm looking for.....
