Any news on the Thunder Model BR-80?

Did any one of you get any news on the Thunder Model BR-80? It has been announced for some time, and on ScaleMates someone claims to have it in his stash, and one even to have finished it?

The latest news published on their website was back in early September 2019, about other models.
The latest news on their Facebook page is dated mid June 2019, also about other models.
