Hi all,

The lovely 1/72 russian napoleonic hussars from Zvezda set 8055 seem to be out of production and near impossible to find apart from a very occasional box selling on ebay once in a blue moon.

Is there any hope?

Hi sho boki, there are certainly plenty of hits but all I've checked are out of stock. Would be very happy to hear different, 🙂

You can get them here link

Not cheap but not extortionate.

Good luck.

I had a similar issue with Old Guard Grenadiers. Has Zvezda gone under or are they just having supply problems?

They discontinued all the large sets in favor of their overpriced BS sets for their "Art of War" game. The founding father passed away and his stupid kids came up with this epic fail of an idea.

On the other hand, the French light infantry set has recently been re-issued. The claim is that it's re-tooled, tho I doubt that. Excellent set in any case.

So maybe there is hope.

Thanks Paul, first place seems to have run out, am thinking about the second but 54 euro is quite a lot for 2 boxes hmm….

Maybe they will do occasional re-releases? In that case it could be worth waiting, I wasn't going to get around to painting them for a few years anyway!

I had the same problem with the Zvezda Republican Rome set, 8034. For months it was not to be found and now itīs everywhere. Hopefully you will experience the same.
