  1. truckman1958kits added a post in a topic how old are you??   

    Hi, I'll be 51 in January. My Grandpa bought my first model when I was 6. Got back into models heavy again 20 years ago. Tell your parents your NEVER too old to build models. I always remind my wife when she complains about my hobby that I'm not hanging out in the bars or worse. I don't own a 25K bass boat(no offense if you do), not gone every deer and turkey season(again no offense to you hunters). Steve

  6. truckman1958kits added a post in a topic How do I become a kit retailer   

    ******Hi, Well, things may have changed but a buddy of mine sold new kits at swap meets a few years back and his MIN. order revell required each OCT was $5000.00. All you need is a state tax # and $5K and you are in business. BTW: he gave it up. It got harder each year to meet the $5K min. order. Steve

    Attn:Question for Greg H. owner of Model cars mag
    Hi Greg, As you know evilbay is going require all sellers to only accept paypal when selling on evilbay. I would consider using your site if you would drop the paypal requirement. Maybe you can find another payment service not owned by evilbay. Food for thought. Steve

    HI, I know about that one, but I'm pretty sure you can only take paypal(owned by evilbay). Greg needs to look into changing this requirement. Steve

    USPS parcel post SUCKS!!!!
    Hi, I've been waiting for over two weeks to get a box of some really neat stuff I won on ebay. The seller used parcel post because it was cheaper(charged me 17.00 for shipping). Well, with the USPS you get what you pay for. Poor service. I have shipped stuff overseas and have gotten better service. From now on when I win something on ebay I advise the seller NOT to use parcel post. I encourage everyone to do the same thing. Thanks,steve
