Model Ship Depot - opinions please
Posted by HooYah Deep Sea on Wednesday, October 13, 2021 7:42 PM

I ordered a kit through Model Ship Depot a little while back and then a couple of days ago they cancelled the order. Their reasoning was "cancelled because we did not have enough stock to fulfill your order . . .".

Anyway, though they did void the payment, which is good, I suspect that they are like 'Optics Planet' and do not actually stock anything. I'm thinking that they are more of a clearinghouse than an actual supplier.

So, does anyone else have any experience with these guys?

You may be lucky to have gotten your payment back

Postings elsewhere indicate that Model Ship Depot is one on the alternate  DBAs of Internet Hobbies.  IH has multiple complaints against it with the Better Business Bureau.

Thanks, I guess I got lucky. There is another 'supplier' off the list.
