Good feedback, anyone here buy from him? I'm looking at the truck topper, haven't been able to get my hands on a plastic one, so I may give this one a shot

Truck topper? Just scratchbuild it. It's just a box. The hardest part is getting the 90 degree angles. There are clamps made just for this, however. I got mine at King's Hobby in Austin, TX. Give them a call at 512-836-7388.

First I've heard of them, but they have 100% positive feedback on 256 txns in the last year, their stuff looks pretty good and is cheap, I'd try them.

Stuff looks pretty good. I thought about trying them aswell, shipping looks a little high on those tiny items..i mean they could be shipped ina padded insulated envelope for 1.50..so order a few items to make the most of it! :)

(Shipping price on the larger items though is cheap!) sorry just a petpeave of mine hehe (im not complaining..honest)

Don't wait too long if you're going to order from King's - they're closing their doors at the end of the year. <_<

if you ship via usps online, the minimun charge is 4.80, with priority mail. the guys i work with use it, and seem to like it. i use the atc at the post office. i charge 7.50 s&h. sometimes its 5.00..sometimes its 9.50. i have to average it out as i dont know the actual amount till i use the atc. shipping aint cheap.

Actually, it may not be definite bad news. I was in there yesterday and they told me that the owner is selling and looking for a buyer to keep the place open. The guy I spoke with said that they've had a few good bites and he sounded fairly optimistic about the chances that a buyer will be found.

So, keep your fingers crossed!

What's this got to do with anything? King's stocks this or something?

It's all good, I skipped over the post about making your own and referencing that hobby shop for the clamps. Not hijacked, more like took a wrong turn and had to come back

BigPoppa-
I don't have photos of the clamps, but here's a cargo box I made for a model work truck.

The clamps were a huge help. Just glue one joint at a time, then add bracing. Use thick sheet plastic, too. It may take a couple of tries, but it's not impossible. Hey- someone has to build the masters for all those resin kits.

I bought those tendem trailer fenders. Casting was flawless. And shipping was fast, even to hawaii. I'd say go for IT.
