*IMPORTANT 

THE STARSHIP MODELER STORE MIGHT SHOW ' ZERO' IN STOCK

   The ' TRICK' is to get onto the S.M. pre-order list !!! 

All the folk on the pre-order list get a model in strict order of ordering date, as the kits become available in batches from the caster.  

And  ONLY IF there are any over do those get into the store.   At the moment demand is mostly outstripping any chance of any showing up in the store.

pre-ordering ensures you get one ASAP.
