Wow...waiting for over 2 years for a kit you pre-paid for? I could never do that...no matter how amazing the kit looks.
Well guys , not sure if it was the flood posting or coincidence but after the last few posts , I am happy to say that the refund has been made.
I cannot understand why it had to get to this point, but no matter what was said , facts are here in the many many pages of this thread.
Wasili good luck with this ...... You are gong to need it!
Looks great, nice clean construction!
Awesome indeed. People have to remember that these sorts of kits are often done in someone's spare time and have to be juggled around real life. Heck, if I was trying to kit something it would probably be years in the making too. Life's pretty busy these days.
Mars, you could have taken it to PMs. Things often go slowly in the garage kit community and patience is sometimes needed. Complex builds don't happen overnight, or cheaply. I seem to recall you dropping out on an APC build by myself without a word and leaving me high and dry with custom resin parts, but I didn't rant and rave about it....
Kudos to you Wasili. It's a fine project and WELL worth the lead time.
Long projects are cannon for this place just don't expect others to fund your hobby.
Take your time but do it on your own dime.
I love reading this thread. That is an awesome model
OK - that picture of the tire just reeled me back in! That's AWESOME!!
I really hope that this project meets successful completion - at any time.
The work is fantastic.
Just look at'em:
They have WANT written all over them!!!
Regarding battlestars comments!!
I got paid out here and need not to post anything else, but it's unfortunate that YOU bring back into this thread unnecessary comments so I will address.
I never dropped out of your kit!
I asked you for a price and you wanted over 1000 dollars and again money upfront, and in my own opinion and no one else's , your kit although nice , it's not worth TO ME that kind of money, maybe it means it's out of my price range! But at no time I ordered anything from you, so before opening a new can of worms on yourself tell it right!!!
the reason why you did not rant and rave about it , is because I never paid you a deposit you required to start nor i gave you a definite ok, and again if you felt this way, maybe you could have "PMD" me!!
Next your opinions are exactly that!
You are free to troll and insult here but if you read carefully my posts, and wasilis, he and I mention we exchanged 30 plus emails.
As I am not protected by paypal anymore and wasili was not giving me results I posted here publicly so I don't misinterpret anything.
I actually got the result I needed by posting , why is it wrong?
Anyways I got out and got my money back, with you as I said thought it was too rich for me,so I never order it!!
This was never an issue of quality on wasilis part. Everyone paid in full or deposited at his request and based on wasilis said deadlines.
No on said WHEN he should finish it , wasili has been saying, it will be ready since his first page, read it!!!!!!!
Every month he promised via pm and publicly.
If you are upfront and say its going to take 2 years then the buyer has an option and goes in the run understanding.
Dude move on!!

Wasili has a great project here, and with all projects there are challenges and difficulties, but at the end of the day, were're all here because we love this stuff.
You've got a right to say whatever you want and share it however you like Marcel, but how about letting bigons be bigons.

You seem not to want to let this go do you?
MD, battlestar was trolling and the deal between him and me is completely irrelevant to this run!!!
How was he polite?
It was meerly a cheap shot at discrediting someone and should have been stopped by a moderator before it gets out of hand.
He Still obviously is much affected at the fact that I went with a different APC and not his.
Again totally irrelevant.
I am not in question here!
My disagreement with wasili was due at his broken promises about my refund!
Once I posted I got it , end of story .
I need no longer to post regarding this refund and certainly not be attacked by anyone for it.
If you do and the moderators don't step in,
Be assured I will once again post accordingly.
Again I say "let it go" and move on!!!
I'm building a dropship atm and as a "new" member (been on here for ages but I just never post) and from a long time before I joined I've watched a lot of threads turn to arguments. This put me off like you wouldn't believe. Like so many on here this is a great build but the drama...
Strictly speaking, as an observation, it seems that the problem of letting this go is not with other members on the forum...
Now back to the build!!

I'm interested in purchasing a kit and can pay the Euro 399 (plus Euro 45 for S&H to the USA) immediately once a complete kit is in the box ready to be shipped.
Sorry, but I'm not willing to pay any advance or down payment. Given current situations, I hope you understand.
This IS an amazing kit and truly a monumental task you have set for yourself. You're almost there. Stay focused on what you can control and you'll be done in no time.
Let me know if you're interested.
Ive been following this since you started it. I cant find the words for explaining how fantastic this looks. Its def one of the best Ive ever seen.
And you did this on the free time, and with a family?
Being a father of 2 I must say thats most impressive.
not seeing any more updates, anything?
sweet! I need one.
Read thru the thread. No matter what, this is REALLY a great effort. Don't mind having one for myself at this scale eventhough I am n the mist of preparing to build and upgrade the 1/35 Halcyon kit.
What is going on with this? I paid the rest as requested many months ago and was expecting a kit shortly thereafter...
Life got in the way. And on top of that recently lost someone very close to me. Now helping out his family take care of things.
Will get back in about two to three weeks.
Wasili - I am also interested in possibly purchasing this kit if it isn't too late. I've noticed several others have expressed their interest. Please, once you have returned to the project, if you could restate the payment options /requirements is available. Till then please take care of the more important things - your work on this project is exceptional and am happy to wait.
Hi Wasili, greetings to you !!! All the best to you !!!
Wondered too what is status on my order of this as never got payment instructions too !!! Pls send em asap when you ar back on the route !!!
