Where to buy MS picket boat?

Recommended Posts

I have contacted this co, who supplies MODEL EXPO USN PICKET BOAT #1 1:24 SCALE. It has been on back order now that I know of for 6 weeks, the person I have emailed 5 times keeps telling me next week, 6 plus weeks have passed. Has anyone dealt with model expo? Does anyone know where this model can be purchased.

Hi, Claude.


My first tip is, don't use your name as your post title. ;)  It's a bit confusing and unlikely to get you many replies.


Second, you say "this co." Which company are you talking about? Model Expo? Who did you speak with? Keep in mind that Model Expo has limited production capacity; if they list a kit as being out of stock, it could be a while before they gear up for another production run.


In the meantime, have you checked eBay? There's usually a lot of MS kits available there. In fact, I think Model Expo is even an eBay seller if I remember correctly. I didn't see one listed just now, but you can create a search for one and have an email alert sent to you if one turns up.


Hope you find one soon!

Yes I am talking about Model Expo, I spoke with John back in December and have e mailed at least 10 times. The same old story of by the end of the week and then the end of the month and so on. Would like honest replies when speaking to and or email replies! I am retired after being in business for more then 56 years, I am old school your word is your bond and find it disconcerting when people aren't truthful! I appreciate you r comments but totally disagree.
