997€ that is 1268 U$
I bet you have over 100% profit margin
no rivets and cockpit optional ?
I think VARIO fuselages are cheaper man
europe is not germany with minimum salary of 2000€
good luck for sales.

I do have to agree with Mikarro on this one at that price I would go with a Vario fuselage too.
The price just does not make sence to me , Vario nor Marvelcraft are that highly priced.

the price is high because you are exclusive distributor, end of story!
many stuff in this hobby have 100% profit margin, I know the factory prices.
I do expect a 1:1 price in USA so about 1000 U$
unfortunatly the next 800-900 size fuselages from Smartmodel will also be for exclusive distributors.

I also believe that you have no idea. You think Vario fuslages are cheaper. Are you kidding?

Simply take a look at Varios offers for painted fuselages without machanics for example:

I think, it´s legitim to earn money with selling products no other one has in stock.

And I think nearly 1.000 € for such a big fuselage is not to expensive.

BTW:

If you compare Vario with Smartmodel fuselages dont´t forget all the work you have to do with Vario - from cutting the windows up to a professional painting.

For example:

my Tiger is the same size like Vario´s.
Vario´s Tiger is the same price. But there are the landing kits missing, the cockpit and the painting. So the complete price will be nearly doubbelt.

So, go on Karsten and don´t read and answer such stupid posts.

Greetings from the neighbourhood

I was told @ Dalton that this was coming WITH mechanicsinstalled.. Is this not correct?? if so that's a really good price!! Also, if you go to the webpage it does have rivots... and I can tell you from seeing in person it is quite impressive!!
