Twinstar out of stock??? Help me find one...Please

Been looking for the Twinstar and was turned on to the "Hobby Club." They had the TS for $74.95 on line on their site and it said "in stock." I called them and tried to order it. They said that the price had changed to $95.00, plus they did not have any in stock and did not know when they would be back in stock. They would be happy to place me on a order list if I gave them my Credit Card #. RIGHT, I'm stupid

Does anyone know if there are any in stock anywhere? It's my Christmas present to myself from my dog!! That's what my wife said....LOL

Anyway.........Help..........Please.......


Thanks,
Fred

Order from Germany and have it in 2 weeks, and its about the same price as if you bought it here in the USA. While you're at it order some other kits because it will be cheaper than buying them here.

It is listed as "Twinstar" under multiplex. Go to online catalog and then Flugmodele and electro modele and you will see it. You don't need to translate to move around the site, and you can email Stefan(who speaks English) for your needs. I and others on the EZone buy alot from them because they are cheaper, even with shipping than here in the colonies.

Even here in Germany the Twin-Star and other foamies from Multiplex are hard to get at the moment. You can get one at close to the recommended list price, but if you want one for $69.90, you would have to wait too. There are literally hundreds on backorder at the moment. Jürgen

I had the same problem finding the one I bought about a month ago. Dymond was out, as were others. I called around to all the local shops (in a 50 mile radius if you call that local) and found that the one closest to my house (3 miles away) had one. Normally they have very little, but I was elated to say the least.

Keep looking. They are awesome.
