New B-17 Flying Fortress

Hi has anyone seen the new B17 on Generalhobby.com? It is 72" wingspan, I have the BH 78" Fuddy Duddy, and this one I've found is much more realistic and highly detailed and is on sale for only $299. I can't find a manufacturer name or find it on any other web site. Just wandering if anyone knows anything about its quality. I think I'm going to buy it anyway if for no other reason than its looks. Please reply with any info. And if I get it in the next 2 weeks I will post pics.

Beware of General Hobby.
You won't get any customer service if your purchase is defective. He will just string you along .

Hey thanks for the link. I learned a lot about this plane. If it's still available I'm ordering it. It may end up just being a hanger plane but I really like it.
