    Nobi??? Are you There???

    Question for Nobi, (or anyone else who knows the answer)
    Hi Nobi,
    I really like that wildcat as well as a couple of other models you have.
    Can't beat those prices!
    I tried to use the contact through your site but apparently you are still constructing it as it didn't work.
    I was wondering; how much for shipping to the US?
    The zip code, in case you need it is; 29385.
    Also, models are purchased seperately on your site but would you combine shipping?
    One more question, Do you have pics of your model for C-130 Hercules?
    I would really like to have a closer look at it.
    Thanks,
    Russell

    The models from Nobi are digital models
    so when you buy them, they will be pdf format.

    Russell,

    The cost of shipping is....$0.00! Nobi's kits are downloadable,
    and worth every cent!

    Waiting for the Mig-21,

    Ray

    I just bought 2 of his models!
    Has anyone here ordered the C130 Hercules?
    There is only a thumbnail pic of the nosecone of the real bird, no pics of the model that I could find.
    I am not fond of buying a model sight unseen.

    I have it - looks good! 1 cover sheet, 1 history/tech sheet, 21 sheets of parts, 8 sheets of assembly diagrams. Typical Nobi high quality and ease of assembly. No internal details. I judge it to be an excellent value for the price.

    I know I've seen a post by Bowdenja with a picture of Nobi's C-130 and he seemed to like it a lot. It looked like a very good model but I wouldn't expect anything less than that from Nobi.

    By the way Nobi I really like the way your F4F looks. I probably won't buy it but then again I rarely buy models I prefer to design them. I think it is a challenge to make card models simple and yet still be good looking and it looks like you succeeded admirably in doing just that.8)

    Nobi has not finished finishing his website.

    He has mentioned it a few times on the site.

    Thank you guys for your input on the C130, I really appreciate it. :)
    Because of your feedback I went ahead and ordered it.
    I also went ahead and ordered the BTR-60.
    Now I have all 4 models he has to offer so far.
    I wish he had more, but these four should keep me busy for a while. :grin:
    especially because of 2 or 3 variations included with the price of one.
    A great value- Thank you Nobi!:wink:

    Will.............. buy it for 5 bucks you get three models! The build I'm working on now of it has already gleamed a Cute! out of the wife. Believe me that says A LOT of Nobi's models!

    Oh and here is a picture of the C-130. To put it to scale, I'm 6 feet tall and 245#. So it is a big model!

    Nice Pic

    Hey John,
    Thanks for the picture. That is a nice looking and large model.
    I didn't realiize it was so big. I think I may reduce it by about 50%.
    It's a shame to have such a beautiful model without a detailed cockpit.
    I'll have to take a close look at that and see what I can do about it.:)
    Thanks again John.
