I hope they release it soon - a couple of years ago they promised R-5 kits in 1/48, 1/72, and 1/144, but so far, as far as I know, only he 1/48 version has been produced. South Front also had a 1/72 R-5 in the works, but no news about that since SF went out of business. I remember that the masters were beautiful!

Hi,
it seems a lovable kit, but not for beginners. I think I'll buy one.
Regards

My order is placed with an eBay seller, and I've already had notification from eBay that it's been shipped. Although with the hellish backup of shipping containers all over the world, it might be at least a couple of months before I receive it. Here's the ad from the seller I bought it from:
https://www.ebay.ca/itm/AMG-72802-Polikarpov-R-5-Reconnaissance-scale-plastic-model-kit-1-72-/303755674261

The other hobby shop seller that was posted on Britmodeller is cheaper by about $5.00, but there's no English language option on that site, so after struggling with it for a while, I gave up and went with eBay. Here's that site from BM:

It's the first type of R-5. So impossible to built the most famous version , the rasante of the SCW,   without a lot scratch.
Happy new year.
