1:1400 scale USS Princeton kits now for sale

Postby paul01 » Wed Jun 21, 2017 10:25 pm

Now available for anyone interested in purchasing one. I have 6 ready to go in addition to 4 already pre-ordered (those who have already put their names down have been "PM"ed).

The price for each kit is $85 (USD) which includes 7 pieces, waterslide decals and placement guide.

The postage for the Princeton class kit has 2 options to the USA. Australia Post offers:


Option 1: Economy air (usually arrives in 6 business days, NO TRACKING) is $33.50 (USD)

Option 2: Standard air (usually arrives in 5 business days, WITH TRACKING) is $41.50 (USD)


Let me know which postage option you'd prefer.

My Paypal account name is:
p_cairncross@hotmail.com

Please include full name and postal address. Kits will be shipped within 7 days once the deposit has cleared. I'll PM you once it's on it's way. If you select option 2, I'll include the tracking number.

Cheers,

Paul

Ok...so from that resounding silence, I might rethink this whole casting /selling my scratchbuilds then since only a handful of modellers are interested in purchasing them!

If I had more room to store and/or display my models I would support you Paul01.
It is a great ship and one I would like to build but my limitations are what stop me.

I wonder if some of the more exotic designs might sell better? I know the Korolev has long been requested and I would snag almost all of your other designs in a heartbeat.

The problem is that people keep requesting me to kit my scratchbuilds and then I do and only a handful of people buy one. To produce a run of 10 kits costs me hundreds of dollars in resin, rubber and decal paper. Not to mention the time AndyH spends molding them for me in the first place. So I'm reluctant to keep doing this if only a few end up buying one.

Hey Paul, what you might do, is figure out your make/break point is per kit. offer to have it done up IF enough people do a PRE-Payment. I suppose the other option is commission work only. Or price the kit as if it was commission work and have each one be a special order (with the price reflecting the extra time to mold it and then cast only 1 or 2).
