Great customer service

10 June 2014 - 05:36 AM

On May 31st I attended the Squadron Open House event held at the Squadron warehouse. I felt like a kid in a candy store. This is the second time I have attended this event and it is so much fun to see a warehouse full of model kits and accessories. They had a discount table with amazing deals on returned kits and other miscellaneous items and selected kits were marked down to great prices. I purchased one of the new Meng F-350 kits at (IMO) a good price. I have been patiently waiting for this kit ever since the announcement. When I got home I opened up the kit and was shocked at what I found. The cab was terribly warped beyond my ability to fix it. I was so frustrated at the realization that I would possibly have to contact Meng and go through the refund/replacement process. I contacted Squadron Monday morning the 2nd of June to inquire what their return/replacement policy was. The customer service representative was very polite and informed me that they would send me a replacement cab at no charge. I was shocked at this news because they are a store not the manufacturer. I received my replacement cab June 4, a lot quicker than I expected. I just wanted to share this information with you to let you know that Squadron earned my future business by going out of their way to serve me. Great customer service.

1957 Ford "Sleeper"

09 March 2014 - 12:04 PM

Just completed this kit for a local contest. The 57 Ford was our chosen common kit this year and I wanted to build something different. The car is basically box stock but, I added the engine and trans from the Revell Saleen kit to give it a little spice. In reality this car would probably not handle very well since I did not update the brakes, suspension or steering, but this is just a kit and I had fun building it. I was really surprised when I won second place this weekend with it.

Need some help on a Kenworth

10 February 2014 - 06:49 PM

I recently ran across some sealed Kenworth Areodyne COE kits and was wanting to know what a fair price would be for this kit. I never had the opportunity to buy one of these before and searching eBay there were none available to use as a reference. I know that they are rare but I don't think they are super rare. I know that different people have different opinions and budgets but, I am looking for a real world price on this kit. What would you think a reasonable price would be for this kit?

I would also appreciate any info on this kit that you may have. What year model does this kit represent? Was the long wheelbase a factory option? What were these long wheelbase trucks designed for?

Saw this on Fox News website today. Would be a cool project for those of us with the Freightliner kit.
