I am situated in Germany and the Models for Europe are printed in the Netherlands.
The Models from SW are kits which need assembling and painting.
So if you want ready made models it might be good it collectors from an area order, combine shipment and hand the models to each other.
If they are far away in the USA single shipment would be better.
All the best
: A group order makes no sense. These are
: produced in the U.S. and postage is
: reasonable. To send an order to one place
: and then resend things merely doubles the
: postage cost. And that doesn’t take into
: account all the wasted labor involved.

: You certainly have my attention, and I would
: be interested in getting a Katori (probably
: two). Perhaps some other interested buyers
: could join me and we can place a group order
: that would save on postage. We would need a
: central collector to make this work, someone
: who is willing to send the models to others.
: I will do it if no one else wants the job.

: For the 29th time in almost 9 years, we held
: our meeting, this time at Paul Jacobs house.
: Despite the set backs with some illnesses,
: and despite the fact that our very Northern
: California friend Bill could not make it
: down to us through the snow, we were still
: 16 participants. George Isham of New Mexico
: flew in for our meeting. In addition to
: enjoying all of our activities, this was the
: first visit from George to see Paul's
: fabulous collections of 1250 models
: displayed in 3 rooms, plus his extensive
: collection of maritime oil paintings and his
: vast library of maritime books. George told
: us that in Sante Fe, NM, the extend of his
: 1250 meetings is a regular visit with Doug
: Knowlton, Rio Grande Models.

: Paul's large dining room table and 2 side

: In November 2016, during our last SMSC
: meeting, Steve Cowdin had donated two 1/200
: models to the USS Iowa Museum: USS Iowa and

: Bismarck. Steve brought his work-in-process.
: You can see this impressive model in my
: photo album.
: Paul had just received a shipment from
: Shapeways. The IJN Katori, from MoM, is
: probably one of the finest detailed models
: that we have seen so far from Shapeways. You
: can see the kit straight out of the box in
: my album. And for your information, this
: model is also available in finished painted
: form from CD1250 in Germany.
: John Youngerman brought 30 of his new
: models. And I can let you in on a little
: secret: in return for attending our
