ICM has US distribution. I sell it.  Not a lot of it, but I sell it. Any good old fashioned hobby shop or online retailer can get them, if they choose to.  Not a big secret who they can get it from. The hard part is getting them to choose to carry it.

Those are some pretty cool kits. Nice to see something different for a change.

For Ordering instead of finding them in a Hobby Shop, I will need a US location., and one I can MAIL (Snail) order from.

I do not have any way of electronic payment (Unemplymnet) so must send a Postal Money Order.

 

The One friend whom I traded Christmas & birthday gifts with has stopped doing that, so I can not ask for paybay

or similar Gift cards.

 

I Do like that G4 6 wheeler!!

I gotta ask, and mind you I earn a living selling model kits, but should buying $40-50 car models really be that high on the priority list in that situation? 

 

But anyway, my company can get you one when they come out, I'll pass along the info when I get more info myself.  I think these are still a fair ways out from release.

The Packard and Merc 770k look pretty interesting...  I had seen the Revell issue of the Opel 4dr convertible, but the weird scale (1:35th) is kind of a turn off...

Please describe EXACTLY what that refers to... :o

 

A hot butty? It's a bread roll, so freshly baked that it's still warm. Cut in half and buttered. You can then add anything you like to make it (e.g.) a bacon butty, a jam butty, whatever.

I bet you anything that this is a hefty premium over what they will sell for in Europe.

I'm currently looking whether I can find a mail order shop in the Ukraine. Cut out the middle man.

I have been dreaming for years for reasonable priced full detail 1:24 WW2 kits.. one of my holy grails would be 1:24 half tracks and other AFVs.

 

Oh man. The world would change for me. That's why I said, I hope they will include some of their trucks. Imagine, a Ford v3000s Maultier.

That Studebaker US6 would be high on my list, too.

Speaking of... let's just say that ICM does something really nutty, and produces a Bulletnose Stude coupe, or maybe (maybe?) a '37 Coupe Express? (I know there are at least two guys on this thread who'd back me up on that last one being a good idea.)

I'm not really familiar w/ ICM...sounds like military models are their main line of business.  Do they have a US importer?

Thank you Christian. Sounds yummy but somehow now I'm slightly disappointed... :blink:

I'd second that without a second of hesitation. However, I'd say we can be happy, if ICM will release more of their own 1/35 offerings in 1/24 and they are obvioulsy concentrating on WWII related stuff, although the Opel Admiral is strictly speaking a 1936 vintage car.

 

For the Bulletnose Stude and Coupe express, I'd appeal to the American kit manufacturers, despite they verociferously refuse to do anything but warm over stuff they have re-released 17 odd times the last three decades an 18th time, because, according to them, nothing whatsoever else will sell. But every time I bring up this subject, I get a beating and no support, which is phenomenon that will never cease to amaze me.
