If anyone is desperate for one, I do have an extra Racing version kit - new in the original box. It was one of the last MM's in the US inventory. It got it in the event that they don't come back.
I have two so if someone is hot for one let me know. I had planned on building it this fall, but have 4 other boats I am working on so, time will tell when I get to it.
Frankly, I don't think there is another boat that sails as quite as well as these little guys do, pound for pound and inch for inch! The DF 65's are pretty cool and are really popular, but for me the MM still gets my vote.
I have a CR 610 in my shop under construction, which I am hoping turns out to be a close 2nd to the MM. If the 610 sails even close to it's big brother the CR 914 it will be a winner!

I honestly just don't think Graupner SJ truly understands how popular the MM has been (at last count around 7000 registered with the class worldwide and in a dozen countries or more.... Again--it will be a real shame if it doesn't come back.

Micro Magic spare parts
There are some MM spare parts here: http://www.racingmicromagic.nl/racin...page=1&lang=EN
I doubt all of them are original parts.

The ARTR seems to be in stock here, in the UK (Britain):
The kit is shown as out of stock, which implies they keep it up to date:
Best to check first, of course. The expected delivery date link is of no real use, except for things they restock regularly, so you'd need to email them.
Some of the spares are showing as in stock too:
I hadn't noticed before, but they show prices in US dollars and Euros, as well as GBP. They do ship internationally, via airmail and UPS:
That's the best site I've come across for general model boats, parts and fittings. They have an impressive variety of stock, so it might be worth looking around the site to see if you want anything else, if you order from there. It takes a while. The search facility works fairly well, e.g.:
I try not to order from them too often because I end up spending way too much money

just a short and small but I think at least positive sign:
Some days ago (around 9-10 Sept) suddenly there had been a first but just small amount of delivery of some new RTR-rMMs in Germany.
Just from one day to another. No info about it from SJ-Graupner , no samples seen before. I do not know if also in other European countries some shops got some boats (e.g. Mike Weston in GBR?), but in our german MM-forum we got info from a shop in Berlin which got three boats and sent us some pics of what is coming out of the box:
The shop also got some spare parts, see pic in post #66
(So far I know they also sent oversea if asked for)
What can be seen from these pics? As promised by the last samples already back in 2013, nearly one long year ago (you got pics from it as well), RTR now looks very close to Mike Westons CHAMP version, which was the target.
So far only the sail suit looks to be still made from the somewhat not very suitable material as it was given in the last RTR serie. No Icarex from the last original rMM-kits as wished.
But anything else seems to be realized:
cMM fin with rMM lead in MMI configuration, cMM rudder, shortend rig layout for better allround abilities with 6 and 5 mm masttube (hopefully just the top section from 5 mm - not clearly visible in the pic), no third servo / jib sheet adjustment anymore, rudder rod linkage and in accordance new RC-layout inside the boat for better space and placement of batterie.
The shop owner reports about so far visible good workmanship of this boat and that he is very satisfied about it so far.
The next set of delivery is claimed for end of Nov 2014.
I do not know about delivery in USA. Graupner-USA is a somewhat own company with own rules I was told some time ago, thus they maybe have different business matters. E.g. when I try to visit their US shop-website, I will be redirected just to the german site… No chance to see what they offer… Global playing ,-)
