Flying Mule and Hobby Link Japan are both showing the Endeavour as discontinued despite it not being released yet (FM says "sold out - discontinued, but since it is not released yet, and we know Dragon Wings does not limit it's releases, the status seems strange to me). Has Dragon Wings cancelled the product? I do find it on other sites, but strange those two major sites say this.

A couple of things here.

First the model is no longer listed on the Flying Mule website (I haven't checked HobbyLink) despite the fact until recently, as you say, it was on "pre-order" (April-May)- I couldn't find it, even searching in the pre-orders product pages up to next September.

Second, I have ordered that model from the Flying Mule a long, long time ago (it was meant to be released in December 2013). So I emailed the Flying Mule yesterday asking the whereabouts of that model/order. I'm still waiting for their response.

And finally, that model was never announced on the Dragon Models website (they haven't announced any new models since July of last year), much like the Atlantis model. Those were announced on the Dragon Models USA website. The Endeavour model is still listed on that website with a planned release date of March 2014 (we're in May so I guess there's another delay).

And Amiami.com has the Endeavour model on pre-order with a late May release.

Thanks for the heads-up!

The model doesn't show if you use their search engine (if you type Endeavour or NASA), that's what I did and thus said that it was no longer listed! And I didn't notice that the Flying Mule has split Dragon Aerospace Program into two categories (1:72 and 1:400).

That's because Flying Mule spells it "Endeavor".

Oh, I've tried with that spelling too! And it doesn't work either!

Does anyone know the status of the 1/400 Endeavour vehicle with the Crawler Transporter?

Is it discontinued from Dragon?

Still a mystery. Amiami.com continues to mention it as "pre-order" for a late July release.
