Arkmodels
« on: March 14, 2016, 04:52:32 pm »

Hi all. I have been looking at the arkmodels web site, is there a distributer in the UK for this company? I cant seem to find one. I really fancy the type 7c u boat in 1/48th scale, not to sure about parting with my card details at the moment to a company that I know very little about. Hope this makes sense. Cheers all.

the one in China has had some bad reviews in the past with people ordering things and not receiving them

Chequered reputation. If you decide to go with them, i would make sure you use a protected method of payment, so if they fail to keep their end of the bargain, you have some comeback.

Trumpeter have a kit in the works expected sometime soon. However it's not entirely clear at present if it will come as a complete hull, or sectioned.

Mind you I can think of one or two people in the model submarine world that ought to be sectioned! :P
