Re: UPDATE on USN Crusiers....You mean you donít like the evil site
Canít tell you how many times I purchased a kit which is represented as new and it has been bashed for decals, photo-etch, parts or damaged or you pay the up charge for expedited shipping and the seller pockets the money and it comes in by snail. Same happens with paint. Represented as new but half a bottle.
I only buy from dealers on the evil site now days and I check the feedback.
With this new project of USN missile cruisers that I have collected, there was a Major flaw within the part, but MAJOR part....that was with BAINBRIDGE vessel.
On that 'JAG' kit that I purchase almost a year ago, I opened it up and Realize ..... "Hey, Where IS the P.E.!!??"
In this kit there was No photo-etch for the mast, radars, and other parts. Well I was Close to making PE, and as a former Chemistry instructor, I could have done it??? (maybe)
BUT, I saw a 'E-bay' seller, that I have purchased before, AND the seller is from China (!!!), that was selling a BAINBRIDGE 3D print job.
So, to make a long story short, I wrote to him, asked for the Major portions of the PE...though 3D printed of the masts...and....
...I got them!!!
Forward masts....with associated gear.
Here is the rear mast.
Looking at the 'JAG' instructions wanted to see how close those masts are in scale ( which he posts on E-B that they were )...
...and It IS!!! Although I haven't removed the plastic wrap off the kit, I placed the mast where it would be place, and it Looks good!!
SO, even though Many of us might say 'bad feelings about "Evil-bay"....I have had few ( oh, I have had Literally three  ) complaints with my experiences!!
