Gimme your input on my new website

When you got a few minutes, look over my site www.scalemodelcastings.com

You guys tell me what you think is a good deal, whats overpriced, whats stupid etc.

Also what you would like to be able to buy for your ships/boats!

Be honest, you aint' hurting my feelings, tell me if something sucks!!

I manufacture this stuff, not re-sell cookie-cutter fittings etc.

Rick

I agree w/Gregg, easy to navigate, brighter lighting in some of the pics ( pipe valves ) could be helpfull, a bit dark.
Orgainzed well by category.
Good thing you dont live in Point Richmond any more, alot of sudden lead poisoning cases there in the past few years ...

Pt. Richmond is a bit different than Richmond... what a difference a tunnel makes. Oakland is not without its issues with lead.

Thanks. Yeah its new. I'll keep adding as I make new stuff. I have stuff I havent listed yet too.

Im trying to locate nice tugs and ahts hulls and/or kits to offer. I am going to make some myself when I can of course. I have a master for a nice modern harbor tug, but need to get to work on finishing the tooling. Its hard to physically work, and work on the web stuff too! both take so much damn time.

Im toying with the idea of a 1:50 semi submersible rig "semi kit" of some type. I think they are fascinating. Especially with all the stuff you could detail it out with.

But thank you guys for your inputs and looking around at the site!

As for Richmond, lol. Im glad im nowhere near there anymore lulz. PT Richmond was a cool little town though. Miss the water though! But I like warm nice water to play in anyway, not nasty cold green water w mud on the bottom aka the bay.

When you get the tugs going, it would be nice to have a reasonable source for bow bumpers/fenders for tugs. Nice site and as the others said, easy to navigate.

Didn't one of our friends from Oz build one of these (beautifully) recently? Nick?

not sure it would be desireable to make one of these "semi submersible" though..
