Liebe Kunden,

Für Online-Händler bringt der Januar, relevante Gesetzesänderungen. Bereits am 09.01.2016 tritt die Verordnung mit der (EU) Nr. 524/2013, zur
„Online-Beilegung verbraucherrechtlicher Streitigkeiten“ in Kraft.

Diese sogenannte ODR-Verordnung (Online Dispute Resolution) hat das Ziel, eine unabhängige, unparteiische, transparente, effektive, schnelle und faire außergerichtliche Möglichkeit zur Beilegung von Streitigkeiten zu schaffen. Diese Streitigkeiten können sich aus dem grenzüberschreitenden Online-Verkauf von Waren oder der Bereitstellung von Dienstleistungen innerhalb der gesamten EU ergeben.

Das Ziel dieser Verordnung soll, durch die Einrichtung einer Online-Streitbeilegungsplattform (OS-Plattform) auf EU-Ebene und die Regelung der Zusammenarbeit mit den nationalen Stellen für die alternative Streitbeilegung erreicht werden.

Wir als Händler sind daher ab 9. Januar
2016 verpflichtet worden, unsere Kunden auf die Existenz dieser Plattform zur Online-Streitbeilegung hinzuweisen. Informationen dazu finden Sie in Artikel 14 Absatz 1 der ODR-VO, den Sie unter folgendem Link als PDF herunterladen können: 
 
http://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/DE/TXT/PDF/?uri=CELEX:32013R0524

Außerdem müssen wir den folgenden Link zur OS-Plattform für Verbraucher leicht zugänglich auf unserer Webseite und denen des Shops plazieren:

http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr

Wie auf der Website der OS-Plattform nachzulesen ist, wird diese voraussichtlich erst im Februar 2016 ihren Dienst aufnehmen – die Hinweispflicht besteht allerdings dennoch bereits ab dem 9. Januar!

Reason enough for us to recall his best known screen appearances as Han Solo and Indiana Jones and remind you that we still have 1/6 scale figures of both in stock. Our web shop still carries a small number of them and as a Fan you should take the chance, because all of them are out of production by now!

Dear Customers and Friends,

Summer is runing warn by now and everybody is thinking of vacations, but there are still some novelties to check out first!

We start with soll very detailed and handpainted diecast metal figures in 1/48 scale from Master Fighter. Not the latest news but starting off in our products range and willing to continue and expand.
The first set 48MH001 shows two
German tank hunters as they appear in Normandy 1944. Anybody who has tried to paint oak camo pattern in 1/48 scale knows what a pain...it is and how long it takes, but these guys come straight from the cardboard box resting in foam. And they may go back in there if need to be stowed away.

Same is with the set 4
8MF013 Panzer Grenadiers - Stalingrad 1943. These guys are wild to be placed in other suroundings or on vehicles. They come wit a mini diorama but they are not tied down to it. Very flexible these boys!

Lates novelty from Hobby Master is the
72HG7008 - JS-2 Russian Heavy Tank 88th Independent Guards Heavy Tank Bridgade, Red Army, 1945. A tank everyone needs who is into the Battle of Berlin and the Red Army. This model comes in known Hobby Master quality, with turning turret, lifting gun and MG. Also included the clear display box with printed on typ data.

Much oftern forgotten in diorama, but most important for mobility of anything having an engine is the
72HG4806 - UK Bedford QL Refuler Normandy, WWII.
This one was used on the beaches of Normandy and the airfields built up there after D-Day. without it no tank would have made it off the beach and no plane back to England. Still they are missing out on most dioramas!

Same s with the
72HG4807- UK Bedford QLD RAF, WWII, a truck for many purposes. Without it most soldiers would have starved naked on the beach without ammo and guns. Although this one is one of the Royal Air Force it nonetheless was as important too. Quite strange was the "Target" marking on the side, but most of this trucks were used behind the lines or on airfields far off battle. This probably minimised the risk of getting a hit.

What's a fact is that there was far more trucks in the field than tanks, because they kept everything runing. Therfore they need to be much more present in collections and dioramas as they mostly are!

All looking for our F-18 and F-14 Pilots Kits take notice that we have solld so many that we have to renew the molds by now.

Also we are working on some display stands for these items too and a relaunch of the known display stands som are desperately waiting for!
We hope to release these items by Fall.

Dear Customers and Friends,

tax ruels are different and sometime complicated around the world. In Germany they are special in many ways. Therefore we have to inform you that we will not collect any VAT from the brutto prices in the shop anymore because the tax law discribe us as a so called "small business".
For that reason the shop will sow any VAT anymore and every invoice comes with the note :"Small Business,
No VAT due to § 19 UStG".
This regulation starts from beginning of the year 2017, so some invoices send out earlier will not have this not, but are valid in the same way.
Please make sure when ordering that your local customs procedure tahes notice of this facts.

Dear Customers and Friends,

some good and some bad news today.
First the manufacturer Flight Wings has announced that he canceled the item TBF-1 Avenger Torpedobomber, (Ex-Präsident) George Bush, 1/18 scale, Item-No.:180110032.
The both other versions of this item will be made as announced and arrive probably by March 2017.

We got not much new stuff on the Nürnberg Toy Fair and this leads to a bottle neck situation for all shops. And there is kind of a hard trade business at the moment because items from China will be distributed directly more and more.

So for the moment we will have to be patient and look at well known, still available stuff, until the blow up dust of the US Election has finally settled a bit.

We could get the last of the available MiG 15bis in GDR colors and these are really the last ones. So take your chance as long as they last!

Also in 1/6 scale we got an unusual collectible Figure of former Israeli Foreign Minister and Military leader Moshe Dayan. This figure comes with metal cast guns and AK-47 which for its own is a reason to by it.

On January 16th, 2017 former Astronaut and "Last man on the Moon" Eugene Cernan has passed away.  We regret that and mourn with the Family.
For all who want to keep him in mind and honor his life, we still have some of the 1/6 scale figures of him in his Moonsuite in stock!

Capt. Gene Cernan
"Last man on the moon!"
NASA Apollo 17 Astronaut

1/6 Scale Collectible

Eugene Andrew "Gene" Cernan passed away lately,
but this figure is still available and a great remembrance to him.

 Eugene Cernan went into space three times, Gemini 9A, Apollo 10 and Apollo 17 he also was backup for Gemini 12, Apollo7 and Apollo 14.

On one of Gene Cernan's EVAs he wrote the initials of his daughter Tracy on a moon rock and he was the last man to leave the moon.
A couple of other accomplishments are attributed to him, while piloting the Lunar Rover on its final ride he set a new speed record for the moon, 11.2 mph. Another speed record he was involved with was during the return of Apollo 10 from the moon on May 26, 1969. The capsule reached a speed of 24,791 mph, making it the highest speed ever reached by a manned vehicle. In 1976 Captain Eugene Cernan retired from military life for the private business world.
