I do not keep a standing stock of the products listed here, I do not have the room. I cast orders when I receive paid orders. Seldom can I ship an order the day after I receive it. I also only make a post office trip once a week.
I do appreciate your business !
Looking the part of a Mountain man! Sandia Peak New Mexico, March 2011
It is hard to believe I have been casting resin kits and accessories for thirty years. From a humble beginning with a 1/48 F2G conversion set of only 4 parts to what you see here today. The original F2G kit was a result of a customer hiring me to convert an Otaki F4U for him and his friend asking for one as well. As a result I made copy molds of the parts
The first 1/48 kit was a 1/48 Vacuformed Hanriot HD-1 kit. This kit originally was part of a line I began with a partner under the company name Vintage Aero Models.
Around this same time I began a line of 1/192 scale US Civil War ship kits that grew to around 30 different kits. These were sold to Flag Ship Models around 7 years ago.
I want to thank all of you, many of whom have also become my friends. I would not be doing this if not for you and your continued support and suggestions for new items. I hope to continue for many more years.
Thank you all, Mike
Welcome to the Intergalactic web site for Lone Star Models
BFORE YOU MAKE A PURCHASE!
Please read this.
Some seem to think Lone Star Models is a big company with a number of employees busily casting and packing orders. It is not. Lone Star Models is the result of one man, me! I began building models again in the mid 1970's. From the start I just could not build many models box stock. As a result of my conversions and scratch building, I started Lone Star Models.
I make the masters with a few exceptions) ,make the molds, do the casting, packing mailing and secretarial work I DO NOT!!! keep a warehouse stocked with the items you see here. I cast them when a paid order is received. From time to time I have a sale. Thus is both good and bad. The bad part is I get so many orders and many very large ones that I can not get all of them cast and packed in a reasonable time frame. Depending on the volume it might be a month or more before your order is shipped. Also the rubber molds used for this sort of model making do not last forever. The best case scenario I might get 30 parts and that is good or bad parts. Eventually the mold must be made over, this too takes time.
I make every effort to get orders out as fast as I can but you need to be patient, you will get what you ordered.
