Thanks for the update and I have to admit that I am a little nervous about what UK customs will make of this as they have become really paranoid these days so going the 2 package route might be the best option certainly in Europe. It is possible to import airsoft parts into the UK so a 2 package option as kit parts should be fine. Keep us posted LOL!!

Would it be possible to be added Number three – The SLA printed, resin cast kit with aluminum parts? Thanks either way.

hey everyone,

I just wanted to give you an update on the kits.
production is coming along nicely, and I should be able to finish every ordered kit including test assembly within the next 14 days.

I also wanted to let you know, that two of the kits I had already shipped returned to me with the following comment:

It's saying "Weapon" in German, so they considered it to be a real weapon after the xray scan.

Even though I applied for a special permit from the Austrian customs already at the beginning of january and also got written proof that I am allowed to export the kits, the post service at the export facility denied the shippment.
I even already got a permit from the austrian center of commerce since everything is non functional.

Luckily a friend of mine who has an agency for movie stuntman and women and also frequently sends weapon props applied for a special permit via UPS.
His agent at UPS said that export should not be an issue, and that the permit is currently being worked on.

Another option would be to split the shippment into two seperate packages.
Then I could send the resin parts seperately from the aluminum frame, which according to the post service might have caused the problem.
Does this apply the packages that are sent with the EU (ie from Austria to Germany)?
Thanks.

Did you had issues with the full resin kit ? Or it's simply impacting the #3 ?
It should not impact the resin kit. But since I got the message that those two packages returned on the day I wanted to send the two ordered resin kits, I shortly waited and talked with the postal service. The info I got is that most likely the metal parts were the issue.
I will send the two resin kits tomorrow, and send you the tracking numbers right away.
Should it come back to me, I will also consider shipping via UPS.

Since I have some contacts in the film industry in the UK I might be able to just send it to them as a movie prop, and then ask them to forward the package. But in general I think within Europe it shouldn't be an issue.

It shouldn't be a problem to Germany :)
Also, depending on where in Germany you live, I could just make a road trip and personally drop off the package :D

Do I need to give you a code serial number? Or is that only for #2 and #3? If you could add me to the list for #1, with an acrylic stand, that'd be very much appreciated! Also, how do I send the payment... Paypal? Thanks so much!

I would like an acrylic stand as well. Just DM me with payment info if there is a second run. If not and someone overseas has issues I am willing to buy your spot. I am in the US. Even if I am just too late, wanted to say this really came out spectacular and good luck with the run.;)

Good news!!
UPS gave me the permit to send the kits!
And I also got a good offer from them. It'll still be a bit more than originally expected, but I will cover that from my side.
For the next project I know how to calculate ;)

They only also advised me to go to the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and check if I need a certificate for the US.
It's just a suggestion by the UPS contact, but I thought I might as well go all the way now.

got all the infos today and I'll have another appointment there tomorrow.

As I said, it's just a suggestion so I can definitely already send some packages. This is just to make sure the import in different countries goes smoothly.

Anyway, really happy to have the ok from UPS now!! :)
