  1. Just a heads-up that we opened the pre-order on ZM, Kinetic, GWH as well as Eduard kits with up to 30% discount! Available for just a few days... 🙂 https://the48ers.com/plastic-kits?prod_availability=1192
  2. Hey guys just a heads up that for a few more days we have all the Aires, Quickboost as well as Aerobonus items at 10% OFF and available for pre-order. As we have announced to expand to WWI and WWII sets and soon at kits across all eras! Here are all 800+ discounted items. Stay tuned!
  3. Also, we currently ship via TNT / FedEx worldwide. However, placing an order with Cyprus Post (cheaper option) is also available but we will be able to ship only when the Post will be able to process orders to international destinations.
  4. Hi all, Just a heads-up for up to 30% discount on ALL products. Approx. 5,000 products to choose from https://the48ers.com/discounted-products-on-sale More on the way!
  5. Thanks Curt, appreciated. We stick to our vision, which is create a place dedicated to the 1/48 scale. With this in mind we try to add as many product lines as possible even though sometimes the trade discount that is provided is was below average (hence the expensive retail price). But we believe that more options should keep on being available. Kits soon... 🙂
  6. Hi all, Just a heads up that the48ers expand their product range, which now includes WWI and WWII aftermarkets. Until the end of March we offer 20% off on all Eduard and Master Model products (all on pre-order status). Check out the entire list here (approx. 1000 products!) The plan is to reach and exceed our current Jet product range that exceeds 6500 products. Stay tuned!
  7. Really appreciate your kind words and support! Comments like this do allow us to keep on going. "I remember when I found them and was amazed that there was a web store dedicated to 1/48 aftermarket. I was in heaven." Well, this is the reason why the48ers.com appeared three years ago. As a modeller, my passion is to build jet planes in 1/48 scale and I always wanted to find a place dedicated to my favorite scale, as I was less interested in any other scales or topics (with all due respects to thousands fellow modellers that work on different scales). One would argue that a large number of very well respected modelling shops have been offering a great selection of products for ever and I would not disagree at all. I just dreamed of a place slightly different based on my personal interests i.e. the 1/48 scale; as simple as that. With all that in mind, it was not hard to draft our vision: "To become the reference eShop for aviation related products in 1/48 scale". Probably, a long-shot many would say; one thing is for sure: we will be trying to get closer to our vision and implement our ideas as long as we can
  8. Darren - a big thank you for the models we were able to put together using your goodies!
  9. Hi all, As we celebrate our third anniversary this month we would like to publicly say a huge Thanks! to all of you that supported this initiative. the48ers.com's vision is to become a reference place for aviation related products in 1/48 scale. Now, whether this is a long shot or not, I guess time will tell !! Staring from next month we plan to start offering WWI and WWII aftermarkets while kits will follow. If you wish to receive news of the upcoming offer plan just sign up here For the time being, we offer double reward points to any order is placed today and tomorrow (till Feb 13 midnight GMT).
  10. Just a heads-up... We kick-off 2020 with 15% OFF on all Eduard products for 2 more days. Just use the coupon code EDU15 during checkout. Link to the entire product range available at the48ers.com here: https://the48ers.com/catalogsearch/advanced/result/?description=&dir=asc&discontinued_product=&discount_percentage[from]=&discount_percentage[to]=&extra_filters=&limit=80&manufacturer[0]=1030&manufacturer_code=&name=&order=name&price[from]=&price[to]=&sku= We are excited about the new year as we will be able to announce more. Stay tuned and thanks for all your support so far!
  11. My view is that it's the distributor's task to maintain communication with the manufacturer and resolve the problem. However, please have in mind that some times the manufacturer may ask the distributor to take control of communication with the end customer for a number of reasons. As long as the entire process comes to a win-win, the communication method does not really matter. And by the way, if someone has acquired a set from the48ers.com, we are in contact with Aires to have it resolved. Just let us know. Thanks
  12. Cheers! Just expect some minor delays due to the backlog size... Just 1-2 days longer than normal.
  13. We are looking forward for your correspondence 🙂 thanks Gabor! Ilias
