LOL - just decided to send you 20-30% less money as this is the discount range across the ENTIRE inventory - just for 48h or until the stock is depleted. 

 

You are an evil man. All those pretty parts on sale and me with no monies.  :explode:

:thumbsup:

Cheers! Just expect some minor delays due to the backlog size... Just 1-2 days longer than normal. 

 

No problem. My modeling has stalled anyway. :tumble:

I'm really happy with the GRU-7 seats in the F-14B set.

 

I think they're the best looking. They are the old Verlinden seats. I got permission to cast them (like when a model company repops another's kit). I knew there were other aftermarket seats, but they just didn't capture the look of the GRU-7 like the Verlinden seats do. Make sure to post pictures when you're done!

It’s cool that they don’t have the “tuck and roll” seat cushions.

I love The48ers. I looked back through my purchases and I think the first time I used The48ers was in April 2017. I think that makes me a relatively early adopter.  I remember when I found them and was amazed that there was a web store dedicated to 1/48 aftermarket. I was in heaven. They have been my go to store ever since. Ilias, you are doing a great job. My only regret is that I don't have bunches of more money to spend as I have a LONG list of stuff I wish I could get from your site

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 :thumbsup:

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.

ZM announced that the F-4E Phantom II (early version) will start to become available from September this year.

 

We plan to have it available by mid October, fingers crossed, with all this uncertainty going on due to the pandemic...

 

Currently it is offered at -20% and available for pre-order https://the48ers.com/catalog/product/view/_ignore_category/1/id/10922/s/f-4e-early-phantom-ii/

 

Thanks

 

Ilias
