Someone know if Fujimi is going to release new Ferrari's in 1/16 ?

Hello everyone,
I had a backorder at HLJ for almost 3 months for what seemed the last option to buy a 288 GTO in 1/16 scale.
Just this week I got a mail that my order was cancelled course they couldn't find any stock for that item and now ALL there Ferrari's are on Discontinued.

This makes me very sad and highly worried at the same time.
Can't find a good sale for a Fujimi 10163 at the moment but the ones that are on the net are already twice the price and likely to go up even more !

Is Fujimi suffering just like Tamiya is ?

Fujimi is directing resources to ships, which appear to be selling well in Japan. Also, large scale kits (which tend to be more expensive) don't get
reissued so often. It used to be twice a year, in the typical Japanese workers' bonus season of July and December, but it's less frequent.
You may want to try Yahoo Japan Auction's proxy service.

Wauw thanks for looking but it seems his picture for that offer is broken or missing sadly.
Perhaps he can fix that.

I bought the old box in Japan so at least got 1 now (for 26,25 excl. shipping) and perhaps someone else would want one too (I hope) course it's a large scale and it does lent very good for someone who wants to do very nice detail work of just go larger in staid of smaller :)
Or perhaps I'll buy it if I can see which one it is :iceslolan

Sadly I see for most 1/16 models of Fujimi standing on 'Discontinued' :crying:
So these might be the last "ever".
