Volks 1/100 Red Phantom

Post by jinnai » Wed Jan 12, 2005 7:50 pm

Hi guys. I haven't posted here before, but lurked for a while..

To cut to the chase: I presently stand in a position to grab this new kit from Volks direct from Japan, through a reliable source.

For those unsure as to if they'll get a copy, and are resorted to Celga and other auction sites to gain their FSS kits, I could be a welcome relief.

What I need, are people who are 100% certain they can commit to paying for a 19,800 kit when asked for. No added charges.

Think of this thread as a pre-order thread.

If you're dubious about myself, and my ability to handle cash, talk to Jack, Vincent, or KOG, as they know firsthand my trustworthiness with money.

Now, for a final note.. if/when this pans out, I stand in a position to grab whatever FSS kit Volks presently have in stock at the warehouse. No lie.

So think of this as a starting point. We all need to start somewhere, right?

If you're interested, reply directly in this thread, via email (logangentleman@hotmail.com), or via PM.

Cheers, and thanks for looking!

Doesn't Volks offer direct on-line ordering right on their website?

Not internationally. Only internally.

Kits sold through Volks On-Line shop are only for those who are within Japan.

What I want people to understand, is that I'm still in the process of setting this up.

19,800 is the full retail price. I may (actually.. most likely) be able to sell for 18,000.

On top of that, I'll be shipping directly from Australia. You're looking at about $20-25 USD for 5-7 day shipping via AirMail.

That's already cheaper and faster than HLJ.

I'm trying to get established right now, that's why I'm only offering Red Phantom for the moment. Why? Because it's the easiest kit to get right now, and it's presently in stock with no chance of selling out right now.

This is a guaranteed purchase.

So consider, and let me know. I'd really like to get this off the ground, because if it works, items that Volks have in the warehouse right now, like Machine Mess Auge, and Final Junchoon, I can get and sell back.

And they're not available to HLJ at this point in time.

Wow...something have changed. You collect FSS GK? When did that happen? :P

Are you still using paper clip for pinning? :D

Damn right with the Paperclips!

Heh.

I'm thinking about it, too. But there are other FSS kits besides the Phantom that I would love to get.

Jinnai's a great guy.

I was lurking on Wax Trax, never posted. But the aformentioned people have known me for a very, very long time.. like 3 years or so?

Hey mate. ^_^ Another one who remembers me. =p

I'll be taking payments via paypal. More flexible. Most likely in the original yen amount also. That I haven't decided yet. I hate currency conversions.

Postage to Malaysia would be $19.50 AUD. That's $15 USD if anyone is interested.

More interested people are arriving.. great!

*waves to Jinnai*

Nice to see you ^__^

Don't have the money for the red Phantom... But I don't like the red scheme, anyway *shrugs* Hope all goes well with whatever plans you have, though

Well, now I feel bad that I can't remember you. :?

Then again, I blocked out the memory of a lot of people on G.com purely on principle. As for buying kits, I need to get around to building the ones I have before I get any more :D
