You never now what the future holds you could be 100% today and in the hole tomorrow and thats the case with most of the cottage industry that does this part-time and work fulltime it consume all of the free time they have. If they don't dedicate the time to it they have inferior product such as thick resin in order to make parts fit you have to grind about 2 pounds of the resin piece. Guys like Replicas N Miniature, Modelhaus,HRM you can buy stuff from these guys and not even think twice.
The resin piece is just like the plastic counter part. As an entrepreneur myself I see 2 things wrong already with your business
and I mean this in a positive way one is you have a partner that is a friend and that could lead to enemies and the other is that you will answer your e-mail ina weeks time. This to me means you don't have the time to dedicate to this. the best thing for people that are PT in the resin business is to sell the product in evil bay sell as you have the product available this will keep you stressed free and as you grow the business and your product line than you expand out. I mean this in no offence. Sometimes positive criticism is better than nothing at all even if it looks negative. Wish you the best in your new adventure we need the cottage industry alive and kicking without you guys this hobby would have been on the waste side along time ago.
My 2 cents
Ariel I thank you for your reply. I have changed my first reply on this page for e-mail which is checked daily. And will be answered as they come in. However I do have a regular job, that's the reason for the first response [within a week] because if I get home and have 50 e-mails I will not be able to reply to all of them in one night. [Therefore that was the reason for returning e-mails within a week.] As for dedication we are in 100%. This company will be a slow go, I'm sure of that. So as I have said before we will set up a poll page to see what people are wanting and focus on that. As for our bodies we build for current kits, they are test fitted for that kit,then they are prepped and preprimed before going out. The customer only has to final sand the primer then paint it.There is no grinding,resin residue cleanup,it's been taken care of before it is sent out. As for this hobby, I started when I was nine years old and have been building since then. Sure I was out of it for a while but for the last 25 years, I have been dedicated to it.This is what I do in my spare time. Thank you Earl MILLER
