I checked and the March stuff is up, if you are having problems they
said to hit the "refresh" button. Hope this helps.
Also, please don't use Collector's and Z in the same breath...I'm
trying to keep them from showing any interest in the scale :o)
Don't look them in the eye...look away!
Honest though, we almost never sell completly out of Z...other than
some of the new stuff, there's still a lot of stuff on the shelf in
shipping. We underestimate from time to time, but it's never to drive
up a secondary market especially in Z...I get that from the top here.
I generally do clean up on any SP subjects at the end of the month,
but for the lesser roads :oP east of the Cascades, there's plenty to
choose from. I will try and get a list of inventory from Sales and
post it so you can get stuff your missing. Also, some LHS will tell
you we are sold out because they don't want to re-order or believe
like a lot of folks do that we are out. I was in Milwaukee a few
years ago and on of the hobby shops got their order and were turning
folks away. I overheard the converstation, introduced myself and
called the factory and was able to provide them with more cars than
they wanted. So if there is something you all want, contact us/me if
your LHS says we are out. I still have all the GP-35's in stock
except the Penn I believe, lots of stock....
