    WTB 1/72 Dragon Saturn V

    Apollo unfortunately lol
  5. WTB 1/72 Dragon Saturn V. Any help finding one would be great! Thanks, Sean
  6. When I ordered he only had the 1 kit. Then I ordered the second. So I doubt it has anything to do with ramping up. Sometimes I wish guys like this would find a reliable distributor. Concentrate on production and leave everything else to someone who can handle it. Sean
  7. I've made two orders. Both off ebay when he was first getting started. Both times took a very very long time to get the kits. Little communication and when he did respond it was always the same lame excuses. I did eventually get both kits but decided the kit quality vs price wasn't really worth it. I've seen some chatter on FB saying similar things. Too bad because manufacturers who produce Air Racers are far and few between. Hope you get what you ordered, Sean

    Kit Pricing

    Without a doubt the manufactures will survive. We are seeing new companies pop up every year. And together with the well established old favorites we are seeing a ton of new releases every year. Even someone like Revell isn't really gone, just restructured and split up. The hobby has evolved from a children's toy into the adult pastime we have today. I would argue its never been stronger especially when you take a look at the thriving aftermarket and modeling products available. Add to that the second hand market this hobby is going strong. As for the cost, maybe looking at the price of an individual kit isn't the best way to determine its value. Personally after tracking money spent on the hobby over the last few years I think it is still a great value. Especially comparing cost/time to my other hobbies and interests. The high price of a couple kits will balance out in the long run and the hobby remains affordable to me. but to each his/her own.

    Kit Pricing

    Seems like you have more of an issue with the local importer/retailers. As noted above the price of the kit is quite reasonable at most places online and here in Canada. If it is that out of reach at the current price do what the rest of us do. Wait for a sale, check out a local swap meet or hunt ebay/facebook/forums and I'm sure you'll run across one eventually at an acceptable price

    1/48 Kinetic CF-18 2018 Demo

    I noticed the mistake after they were buried under several layers of gloss clear. Unfortunately I had a tight deadline and didn't have the time to fix it. The decals were not bad but definitely sized incorrectly in several places. Looking forward to giving it a go in 32nd next time. I was the West Coast engine tech on the team. It was decent. Found the nose a bit fiddly. Intakes and rear fuselage didn't go together easily, but I have some ideas for the next one. I do like the separate flight controls, landing gear and most of the detail. Overall I was happy with how it turned out.

    Hobby Shops in Calgary, AB?

    PM Hobby and Modelland are your best bet. Well stocked in kits and supplies everytime I've been to Calgary recently. Avoid Chinook, its nothing like it use to be. If you happen to be anywhere near Red Deer in your travels check out CompuSoft. Another well stocked shop.
  15. Sorry, sold! should have posted when it did
