We’re thrilled to announce the imminent arrival of DeAgostini 1:144 scale military aircraft. Much like the old IXO/Altaya range of military aircraft, the DeAgostini line is affordable yet chock full of features, making them wonderful stocking stuffers for the holiday season. Keep in mind that these planes are packaged in blister packs instead of the more traditional boxes, since they were originally designed to be bundled with a military-themed magazine based overseas. Nonetheless, for $20 a pop, you cant go wrong with any of these warbirds, in part because they replicate subjects no one else has done before. Get ’em while the getting is good!

Welly Serves up the War Winning Willys Jeep

Welly's 1:18 scale US 1/4 Ton Willys Jeep - Top Down
Welly’s 1:18 scale US 1/4 Ton Willys Jeep – Top Down

Alliteration aside, we’re happy to report that Welly will soon release a 1:18 scale rendition of a WWII-era Willys jeep (#WE18036). Accurately modeled and finely detailed, we think this sharp looking replica will make a fantastic gift this holiday season, both affordable and sweet to behold. Compare this with the overpriced AutoArt rendition, and we feel this portrayal is an absolute bargain, even if it doesn’t come outfitted with cloth seats. We expect to take delivery later this month so make sure to check out this latest listing at your earliest opportunity.

Product Reviews: Why They're Important

After a customer receives an order from us, an automated email is generated and sent out to the recipient asking about the level of service they received, the quality of the product and other important pieces of information which are aimed at evaluating the shopping experience. So why is this important? For starters, we’re truly interested in hearing about a customer’s comments, be they good or bad, and strive to make improvements where ever and when ever possible. Moreover, each product is reviewed with stars which now appear as “rich snippets” when someone does a search on Google for the product in question. This enables other would-be customers the opportunity to see the item at-a-glance as well as gauge its overall quality and the customer’s shopping experience from that particular merchant. Essentially, the customer is helping the next person in line evaluate whether or not they should consider the item and from whom they should purchase it. Hope that makes sense and we hope everyone enjoys this new feature as we continue to move forward…
