399. Should be available any time now. The aftermarket super detail firms will have a field day with this one.

Nice model. I think the Ark model kit has the edge for an RC conversion though, owing to the fact all the slots are opened up. Plus a bit cheaper as you don't have the interior and figures included.

HUGE is a relative term.  it is smaller than the 1/40 robbe, and much smaller than the 1/32 from OTW or 32nd parallel.   i prefer to think that the 1/48 and 1/72 are "small" and "dinky"
