Looks like this company has scaled their business back???

http://www.modeldesignconstruction.co.uk/

I need the skinny sanders in the picture I have attached. I sent them an email inquiry. anyone know who else carries this exact product?




I am not interested in Squadron products or the Flory Models sticks.

I got a quick reply from Chris at MDC. He confirmed that they do still sell the "skinny sanders". I replied that I could not determine which sanding item in their online catalog was actually the "skinny sanders"---no pictures in the catalog, no number on the pack I bought. I am weak! I am sure he will respond.

For years I have always bought something from MDC every time I saw them at a show ( all my Gunze products cane from them)
They always had a great range of products and Bob the owner is a great guy.
It's a shame they have scaled down but they are still producing resin accessories (which are really nice) and I really hope that they still attend shows

Items from inside the US are reasonable for standard ground shipping I guess??--anywhere from $4-5 US to $8US for many packages. Seems that Shippers here key on size of the containers and THEN weight. Sellers here are very inconsistent with outer packaging. Small items in Fed-X cardboard "envelopes" one time and then the next time inside of a much larger cardboard box full of loose material. wonky differences. orders from Asian and Ukraine sometimes want $15US and up to ship items out to me which I understand. I have had shipments from the UK that are the same shipping cost as the US.....??

When I sent my first email I got a very quick reply that they still sold the "skinny sanders"---I had included a picture of a pack that I bought from them--the exact item. it has no numbers or identification on it except :

MDC logo and Name, then "Skinny sanders  coarse, medium, fine, buffer"
I sent a second email asking which item in their catalog the skinny sanders were. I read everything but could not determine which is which in the sanding products?? No reply yet from over a week ago.

Can you tell me which item in the catalog to order or watch to be back in stock? thanks. I had ordered 2 packs of the skinny sanders a long time ago and don't have the original order on file to refer to.
