Yeah, I've been holding off on my orders and in the waiting mode until we see a freebie, but I don't think that we will see one soon. My guess is that HK had a good Christmas buying season and may not need to clear their shelves.

Also, the Chinese New Year is coming up on Feb 10, and the whole country shuts down for a number of weeks during that time. If you need something, order it now......

I was hoping for the SU-35 to be a freebie for the last year but its a good seller so I don't think it would ever be out on freebie. So I just bought one outright instead, I know you've got one too Goldsworthy

I'm still waiting for the p-47 1600mm or p-40 1700mm though would love to get my hands on one of those as I missed out last time.

Yes, but very few could actually figure out how to get it. For 90% of us, it just said the package was too large to ship. It was possible to make it ship by adding a magic combo of random things to your cart, but I never figured it out.

So I don't think you missed much. Lots of us tried to buy it and failed.

In fact, they did it TWICE!!! (So I got two). Sadly, that was very late in fall, so they are still in the boxes, waiting for spring to show up. And on the last one, they even gave us $30 credit because the retracts are flimsy. (so we could buy another set of retract).

No wonder HK is getting a huge chunck of my hobby money!

It should not be this hard! if you buy the required amounts they should add the free item!. If for some reason the free item will not fit in the same box as your paid items, they should automatically pack and ship the free item at HK expense!. Also if you have already got 1 free item they should automatically keep track of what kind and date you won the free item. You should NOT be able to get the same free item again for at least for 6 months as others need one also. You should however be able to get another free item other than the 1st one however.

No they should let you get two of them if you spend 300, 3 @ 450 ect ect, they want to have people spend and move crap, although if it does not fit in the box, let the buyer get the new box if they want the item. Love the .65 cent screws that take a 40 dollar box. OK not quite that bad but you get the idea.

The most important thing is YOUR MONEY not their rules. Without your money the whole staff at HK would be liveing on top of the great wall!. You are the customer YOU make the rules they dont!
