I have contacted mr. Ray Tomas of Vintage Fighter Series, because I wanted to order a "Gabby" resin figure, and told him I would like to have a P-47M and Razorback, but that i couldnt find one anymore and if they would be taken back into production.
He told me they will be back in production somewhere next year, so maybe all types will be put on the market again. Just wanted to share this to all of you.

Don't get too excited about the Razorback just yet.
While Ray is certainly looking into getting some more Bubbletops produced, the Razorback is still in development.
However, I'm sure that if Ray gets some more bubbletops done and they sell well, ( which they undoubtably will), then the Razorback will come along sooner rather than later.

When the long anticipated VFS Razorback does appear one of the first produced will be heading to P-47 Heaven HQ for a full build so "watch this space".

All the best,

Indeed. Nigel has obviously forgotten the small matter of the Olympics which may well keep him away from his bench for a while. I bet it doesn't get built in a month!

You may well be right Steve.
It's taken me 6 weeks to get around to finishing a 1:48th cockpit and the Olympics are still months away!
Bet they arrive before the VFS Razorback though
