    The On30 new shay is out in the local hobby store near here as well as in the big city, $420.00 (Canadian). Ouch !!!! This is way too expensive for this modelers budget. I know in the local hobby shop they got two, they have had them for a week now, lost of people looking but no takers. Spoke with one of the employees that I know very well and potential customers are saying the same thing, nice model but priced way too high. I do not know what it is selling in others areas but this is what you will pay if you want one here from the hobby shops in western Canada. Ron..

    On30 Shays...

    Yes, they're beautiful...from what I've seen, which is pictures only. Out here, the hobby shops don't even have one to look at.

    Mention On30 in Edmonton, all that you get is a blank stare.:(

    Here in the UK they are £183 just a little pricey.

    I placed a pre-production order for one, and it cost $206. The detail, and running quality are, in my opinion, well worth the price.
