  1. Not to worry. In 2021 we (the U.S. CDC) will be spending $1,000,000,000 for vaccine confidence activities, to: 1. Strengthen vaccine confidence. 2. Provide further information and education with respect to vaccines. 3. Improve rates of vaccination throughout the US.
  2. I have not bookmarked sources, just read several accounts over time. US CDC lists 1,107 reports of death ( https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/safety/adverse-events.html ) but does not necessarily categorize them as frail or elderly. This is something I have gathered having read multiple reports. I recall reading reports from various locations in the US and Europe including Germany, France and Norway (possibly others) where elderly, frail and those with comorbidities died after receiving the vaccine. The gist was that they may have died whether they received the vaccine
  3. I don't want to quote anybody, because I'm not looking for a fight, but there are a few points I'd like to make. While no deaths have been blamed on the vaccine, lots of recently vaccinated frail and elderly have died from the very same side-effects that the vaccine causes. The deaths have just not been directly attributed to the vaccine itself. Several people have had adverse and life-threatening allergic reactions to the vaccine, so some are at risk by getting it. This isn't a problem for most though. This is a new type of vaccination. Most previous vaccin
  4. Bump. Last Call for $47 price!!! Remainder will be sold off on eBay for a fair price (higher than $47!) starting sometime next week. Now listed on eBay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/164695250300 These are new Kinetic 1/48 Su-33 kits molded after the sink-mark problem was fixed.
  5. I created the page but haven't linked it on the NEW website yet (check out the site while you're there!). I will eventually be adding a tutorial/misc page on the website and this will go there. https://zactomodels.com/su-33_drawings/ I updated the links at the beginning of this thread and edited the link in the Zactomodels sub-forum. I'm planning to sell off the remaining Kinetic Su-33 kits on eBay at a reasonable price which will be higher than the $47 I've offered here at ARC. I should have the eBay offering up sometime this coming week (assuming no more crises interrupt me
  6. I don't know the rules on this or shipping items as "gifts", but this might be a nice solution. My current plan for UK purchases: Under £135: eBay store. eBay charges customer the VAT and eBay does the dirty work of paying VAT to HMRC. Over £135: Minimum purchase over £135 will be required on my website, assuming I can find a plugin or code snippet to make this work. If not then customers can email me a list and I'll send an invoice.
  7. I am reading things differently regarding eBay and may have found some good news for you regarding wholesale. Please let me know if I am missing something here and provide links if possible. There's a thorough article about all of this here: https://esellercafe.com/how-a-new-vat-rule-from-brexit-now-impacts-every-us-seller-shipping-to-uk-customers/ As for selling direct to customers, the problem is only for purchases under £135 (currently $183.44). Over that amount and the customer pays the VAT. According to that article and links it provides, eBay takes care
  8. I got this wonderful news recently: I decided to register my business with HMRC so that I could continue doing business with my UK customers. About 2 hours into the frustrating and complicated registration process, ready to quit, I walked away from my computer to clear my head. When I returned the site had refreshed and started me over from the beginning, without having saved my info. I quit. I blocked payments from the UK on my website.
  9. Have a look at my new website!!! https://zactomodels.com A big thank you to the modelers whose pictures you'll see on my homepage. A huge thank you to Marcel and Miro who took multiple pictures of their kits until the lighting and pose of the images worked together so that I could merge them for the hero-pic. Thank you for tolerating my AMS! My old website was cluttered, crowded, not mobile friendly and way beyond obsolete. Not having a clue about building websites made this a real challenge. The site still needs a lot of work. I was mostly focused on m

  11. Email Joanna again and CC info@trumpeter-china.com explaining that Joanna hasn’t responded. I had a customer do this after trying twice with no reply. When he did this he received a reply the same day. Good luck!
  12. I wish you all a happy Thanksgiving! 🦃 I'm taking the next few days off to be with family. New orders received will be dealt with next week, after the Thanksgiving weekend. I recently made some price updates on my website. For the most part the price changes benefit you, the customers: I raised and lowered some product prices, mostly lowered. I increased US S&H to match current rates. International shipping is still the same. I did a big S&H decrease on certain items I decided were safe to ship in padded envelopes rather than boxes. This
  13. I'm still here. Aliens didn't abduct me (we've become good friends). The Secret World Government has made a few attempts at mind-controlling me but jello is surprisingly delicious. I've been distracted with other projects and my old back injury has flared up a few times which makes it difficult to sit at the computer. When I am at the computer I haven't found much time to more than browse the forums while learning to code. I am still taking and filling orders with little or no delays. I have been answering business related emails and doing my best to reply to non-
  14. USS Kearsarge, sister ship to Bonhomme Richard, catches fire on Friday while in maintenance. Navy issues stop order and directive to ensure compliance with fire protocols. https://justthenews.com/government/security/navy-orders-shipyard-stop-work-after-fire-quelled-aboard-sister-ship-bonhomme
  15. Thank you both for leaving such nice feedback during my absence. Sorry I didn't reply until now but I've been keeping very busy and haven't visited the forums much lately. Yes they are still available for $47 + S&H. I've been too busy with other stuff to deal with setting up an eBay account yet. To those interested in the kit, please send me an email ( Zactoman@Zactomodels.com ) with your zip code and I'll send you a PayPal invoice.
