Amazon Prime We're NOT!

 Yes, that's correct; two of the many things that you did NOT find on Amazon Prime are Doctor Ben's Scale Consortium & Scale Model Masterpieces/Yorke Weathering, Scratchbuilding & Craftsman Kit products!!

   Lots of folks called and emailed asking why? One of Richard's many past careers was a Senior Buyer for a Wholesale Hobby & Craft Distributor (at the time the largest in the Southeastern USA) also known in the industry as the "Middle Man". Twenty plus years ago there was a place for this function. Walther's and the many other catalog sellers still do it today! But now with the popularity of the Internet growing daily and increasing more small hobby manufactures giving up their day jobs to work their hobby business full time; the need for this middle Man who happens to take a 20-25% profit cut is not as necessary as he once was. We the Middle Man is cut out, small hobby manufacturers can better manage their prices resulting in lower priced hobby products for you! Now if only the USPS could get it's act together to reduce it's costs to lower postage rates!

 And finally, just a reminder that we'll be traveling in a couple of weeks which means that Orders places while we're away will not be mailed until mid-August! Also, Richard has a bunch of Doctor appointments in preperation for our tripe in the next week or two which will also cause slight delays in our typical 1-3 Day Shipping policy! Many thanks again for your patience & understanding and as always you loyalty and continued business! See you in the Hobby Room ...
