Problems with German post and customs

Bad news for German customers – already I have 2 reports about problems with shipping packages with kits from our German customers. Packages are on the way more than 3 weeks and they are still somewhere between customs and customers.

We are starting searching routine from both ends. I will keep you informed about this issue.

Update. Both issues are solved, packages were at German customs.

New reseller of A&N Model Trucks. Gallery launched. Table with cost of shipping added

Today I have some news.

First of all, I am proud to introduce one more official re-seller of A&N Model Truck, Internet hobby shop from Sweden, Virago Hobby! You can find all range of kits by A&N Model Trucks in this shop now.

Second – finally we launched our gallery of customers’ models! Currently there is the only model truck built by Markus Boesch from Switzerland, but I hope we have much more pictures of model trucks soon.

Third – I added table with cost of shipping to “Customer Service Policies”.

Freightliner Coronado Poll

I have found, that some modellers were not happy about my decision to scratch Coronado new generation and prefer previous Coronado with round headlights.

We are always open for discussion and we are trying to make kits, which will be really welcomed by modellers, so I would like to ask you to take a part in our new poll – “What Coronado do you prefer?”.

Thank you!

KamAZ-54112 all new photo-etched frame. First look

Finally I have got fret with photo-etched all new frame for KamAZ-54112 full resin kit.

On the pictures you can see the first test build of the frame version 1.0. I have found some problems while I built the frame, so here are necessary some minor changes. For example in final version rear halves of frame rails will be made as U-beams (these frame rails were made from 3 parts) , will be added etched fuel tank and front bumper.

The frame is glued with super-glue; cross-members connected with frame rails with resin bolts and super-glue; a lot of bolts did not install.

Also, we can make such frames for other model trucks, if we shall have enough demand. Approximate price is €20 per kit.

New prices by Russian Post

Russian Post has changed minimum price for packages, sent from Russia Worldwide.

Shipping of package with weight from 1 gram to 100 gram now costs €2.65. Due to this fact we need to change our cost of shipping.
