    1 Week Ago  Sep 14, 2018, 2:57 PM - Looking for a Studio Scale or slightly lower scale SNOWSPEEDER KIT #1

    So far I contacted NICE-N MODEL DESIGNS (a few months ago) but I never got a reply. Based on what I read, they're usually busy.
    I contacted NEXUS-MODELS (just a few days ago) and waiting for a reply. But, also based on what I read: he's pretty busy too.
    IMO, this is the best one I've seen so far.
    A while ago I saw EPIC-MODELS' 1/6th Speeder but it looks like that project was abandoned.

    Would anyone out there know of other places to look for a good kit?

    Thanks.

    Nice-n and Nexus are your two best bets. I don't know about Nexus but Steve at Nice-N can be tricky to get a hold of. I payed for the SS snowspeeder back in early July and I spoke to Steve a week ago and I should be getting it shortly. The delay seems to be due to hot weather unsuitable for poring up the molds.Steve seems to travel quite a bit. That has been my experience in trying to contact him. Best way is by phone or text you just have to keep trying.

    I'll connect with Steve when I have a bit of free time and see where it goes.

    Thanks @scotthothpatrol

    Try Mike Salzo for a SS Speeder- I got mine from him (same kit as Nicen).

    Fantastic communications and service- top bloke!

    I cast the speeder kit for Steve, sometimes he lets me take a direct order for ease of transaction, but all the SS speeder kits are his.

    Yes our summer here was super hot and super humid. I am just now getting back to casting on Steves stuff.

    I'll shoot for like 2 weeks, today has been the first day I was able to really cast since like July.

    Ok guys, since I need to cast a couple for Steve as it is he asked me to go ahead and let anyone here who wants one direct PM me here and I will take a few for a very short run. Molds are up and running.
