Where have all the Emils gone?

The Bf 109E situation is getting bad.  Eduard has all of  their's with the exception of one kit marked  as "discontinued".  Dragon seems to have taken a hiatus on 1/32 aircraft as well.  Only source I can find is from China, over MSRP and expensive shipping.  That leaves us with the Trumpeter kit which, really is a turd.

Anyone have any insight on if Dragon planes to re-issue their Emil at any point?

Dragon is a pretty god kit, way superior to the Eduard's offering. Having said that Eduard could be a great candidate for the AlleyCAt D1 conversion . And as Smitty said it is readily available on eBay .

Needless to say, AML makes sweet little conversion set for a night fighter version

I don't want to sound overly negative , but It is not just the shape of the fuselage, there are issues with radiator housings, propeller blades, cowling and the gear legs. I started the build and toss it after decent amount of work invested for a simple reason, Dragon came out with it's model.

All painfully true.  That's why ppl are able to get it for $40.  And also why Dragon Emils are sold at MSRP or higher.
