The Protoform 235mm "P905B" body #1500-21 is ready to ship right now. The agreement that Proline/Protoform has with their distributors is this: any new product releases are always scheduled to appear on the 15th of every month. The press release only goes out if the product is ready to ship. (if for example we are still waiting for decals etc from a outside supplier - we delay the announcement until the following month.)
*This however is no guarantee that the distributor will place an order promptly. That's up to them. If the local hobby shop is trying to get something from them they usually will respond appropriately.
Thanks for your interest.
