    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Sunday, November 26th starting 9 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. 
      Update 2: I'm moving the upgrade to 9 AM Sunday.

    Favorite Instagram Accounts?
    Curious what everyone's favorite Instagram accounts are for car modeling (or anything car-related, really). Thanks!

    Indeed I did, but I don't like taking people's posts without their permission. So a post on this thread gives me permission to use it

  6. MegaHobby added a post in a topic More on Molotow pens   

    Steve, when I said available until June, what I meant was available in the USA. The refills are legally not allowed to be shipped overseas by air (though that may not stop some European companies from doing so anyway). Like Zoom Zoom said, they need to be properly labeled for the USA, which Molotow has told us will be June.

    As an FYI, the chrome refills from Molotow will not be available until June at the earliest. We buy directly from Molotow and get our information directly from their product rep. So don't let other retailers try and convince you that they are going to have them "real soon" or "in a month". Don't fall for the trap of "be sure to check our website all the time" 
    As soon as we have a definitive date for them, we will let everyone know on the forum and list it on our website for purchase. Molotow says the product will be released in June.

    Hi Charlie,
    While I haven't personally tried it myself, Brett in our office has and said it's fantastic. We've also sold a lot of these already and the feedback from our customers is that it works very well. Most have told us that pretty much anything can be painted over it.
    Take a look: https://www.megahobby.com/search.php?search_query=stynylrez&Search=

    MegaHobby Rewards Program
    Hey everyone, we just rolled out our new loyalty program this morning, Mega Rewards! Rather than spamming the forum with all of the details and fine print, I want to invite everyone to click the picture below and take a look at the program, which gives you points for placing orders and engaging with us on social media.

    Thanks for all of your continued support, we hope this program gives a little something back to you!

  15. MegaHobby added a post in a topic Hello from MegaHobby   

    Thanks for the kind words! There are many companies out there (and I'm not trying to start trouble at all, so no names) that intentionally screw their customers by upcharging, making it seem like you're getting a good deal when you're not, dishonesty in how their business is run, etc. My family, for three generations now, has focused on service first, the idea being that if you give good service and are honest with your customers all the time, they will come back. It's why we've been successful for so many years and it's how MegaHobby will always be run. No hidden gimmicks, screwy charges, or anything like that. Just very simple: you want an item, you buy it, we ship it. If there's a problem? We'll fix it. No strings attached. And it makes me very happy to hear that many of you agree -- it's what we strive for every day here.
    Thank you and everyone for your continued support
