  1. Hi all, Just a heads up that until Thursday 22 August at midnight (GMT) we offer a 10% discount on all products i.e. >4,000 items in stock at the moment this post was created. Discounted products up to 25% are still available 🙂 In order to get the 10% off simply use the discount code AUD10OFF (for applying the discount code do the following: mouse over the shopping cart icon, click View All, type in the discount code on the left hand side of the screen and then check out as normal). Thanks!
  2. UPWiND mainly focus on modern aircrafts in 1/48. From what I am aware of they also offer a couple of sets in 1/72 and a few in 1/32. Check out the manufacturer's FB page https://www.facebook.com/upwind.wang.5
  3. Useful info indeed. The metal alloy used by UPWiND is comprised of 4 ingredients in a mix that will demonstrate the required characteristics.
  4. Just got to know from the manufacturer that the material is of low lead (Pb) levels to make the landing gear less prone to bend and deform.
  5. We have not used the two product samples we got (passed them for product reviews) but the first impression was positive. More photos as soon as the products will arrive.
  6. A new (to us) interesting brand that manufactures metal landing gear sets, is now available for Pre-Order at the48ers.com: J'S Work painting camouflage masks as well as Spanish theme decals from Series Espanola are available for Pre-Order at 15% Also, the MK i Aero by KA Models product line is currently at 10% off (here)! Thanks
  7. Hi Mark, we restocked on DXM last week but the new F-4EJ Kai Sea Camo scheme was not included in the package so we wait for the replacements. You will get the discount anyway because of the waiting time 🙂
  8. It all started 2 years ago, when the48ers.com project went live! We wanted to create a reference place for those that deal with the 1/48 scale. Since then and based on your support, we managed to grow bigger and be able and offer around 4,000 aftermarket products specifically for modern aircrafts, always in our favorite scale! Equally importantly, we managed to earn the trust and partner with a number of great manufacturers around the world that do offer fantastic products designed to help us transform our kits into masterpieces. This week we celebrate our 2nd anniversary and we offer our entire product range at 5-40% off till Sunday, Feb 17 at EOD, GMT. We will be sharing our future plans soon... Thanks!
  9. Hey Ioannis, really awesome - any plans to offer the throttle stick as well in the future ?😀
  10. I am sure the guys from AMUR Reaver will soon be announcing a couple of interesting new PE sets...
  11. Certainly, I wonder if it could work better to sum up all your requests with specific product numbers (strictly in 1/48). You can contact us here: sales@the48ers.com
  12. Thanks Mr Matt Foley, it is our habit(!) to make available the entire product range from ALL the manufacturers we work with. And there is no exception with Mikhail's Amigo Model / Advanced Modelling product ranges. Another order is underway... By the way, the48ers.com plan to expand to other areas of interest. More to be announced soon 😉
  13. As I have been in both sides of the transaction and regardless of whether the transaction processor (PayPal or other) protects the buyer (in most cases) one needs to consider the fundamentals of a transaction: to be a win-win for both sides. So the seller has every interest to keep their customers happy as well as the customer ensures that trusted sellers are around. Just a personal view.
  14. As well as in a number of other shops now as the Super Detail Exhaust series is indeed very popular!
  15. Right, KA Models just released 8 sets for the F-4 Phantom. For A/B/C/D/N or E/F/G/J/EJ/S, Open or Closed nozzle as well as with or without the afterburner.
  16. Just a heads up that the early holiday discount period started at the48ers.com. More than 3,500 products in 1/48 scale are available with up to 15% off. An extra 5% discount (to get you to up to 20% discount in total) can be achieved when opting in to the newsletter (if not already done so).

  17. Hey Gary, the Hypersonic dealers can be found in this link http://www.hypersonicmodels.com/content/links but Jeffrey will be able to provide more on this.
  18. Time needs to be spent on designing new products as well so it's not just casting LOL
  19. We aim to continue offering these great products and be always properly stocked, as high availability is one of our key goals.
  20. There is also the manufacturer's option to buy if from (http://ka-models.co.kr/)
  21. Thanks guys. F-15 C/D/E/K P&W exhaust nozzle set (opened) for Academy/Revell/GWH is now on PRE-ORDER status @ 12.5% off and estimated shipping date of Sept 28 (we will aim for earlier). https://the48ers.com/se-f-15-c-d-e-k-p-w-exhaust-nozzle-set-opened-5182.html Btw, we are working for much cheaper shipping fees in the short term (-25% for Europe and -20% for RoW). More soon
  22. I would assume aviation enthusiasts rather sim users. In my view, each use requires different specs and by combining both you simply increase the cost exponentially. Yiannis, please keep a copy for me!
  23. Thanks - just to be clear on this I am not taking anyone's side here. One can form an opinion based on the information available; and if I may this process i.e. of trying to find (or get closer to) the absolute truth is probably one of the great aspects of this hobby!!! Btw, I am really looking forward to receive the G.W.H. kit I have ordered...😀
  24. I have just asked Aires to provide anything that could help the post followers better understand where the potential issue is... As soon as I have anything I will let you know.
  25. Just to keep the dialogue going, the feedback I had from Aires is that the product corrects the shape...
