Hi, was just wondering if you guys have considered making a P-47D Thunderbolt for your WWII aircraft range?

Raiden is on the Minibits website.

Thanks for the order, I feel obliged to let you know that we import them from the US though, so it might be a lot cheaper/quicker to get them direct from I-94 in Michigan?  Let me know what you'd prefer to do and we'll get it sorted out for you.

To reply to the original query as well, aircraft are a lot more expensive to get designed/sculpted, so it's not usually financially viable to get them done.  I am looking at some 3D print options for the future though.

Oh! Thanks for the information! If they are made in the US then I suppose I will get them from I-94.  Embarrassed I also understand about sculpting new molds for minis. It must take some time and resources to do.

By the time you paid postage and VAT, if your order is over 15 in value, and paid the PO to collect it, I doubt you'd save much getting them from the US.

No worries, I'll get that refunded from this end and you can grab them from I-94 instead.  All of the ordering info for them is on their site here and Dave's a great guy to deal with: https://i-94enterprises.com/ordering/

MSawyer's in the US so he won't have to worry about the fees and stuff.

I didn't grasp that important point  Embarrassed

Your prices, nevertheless, bearing in mind that they come all from across the pond are pretty competitive.  I thought I'd discovered a new source of 1/144 until I took a look at your list.
