Postby greenman407 » Wed Aug 11, 2010 12:35 pm

POI, Just recently got a response back from Upshaw regarding some info I had requested. His response pointed out that he is a one man operation which may or may not have a bearing on the delay. I used the e-mail on the web-page that he responded to, so I suspect it's probably still a valid address.

Who are we talking about here?

Scale Shipyard - Lee Upshaw in California, or

Scaleships -dot-biz in the Ukraine?

It's two years later and I'll ask the question again. Is Scaleships - dot - biz still in business?
I get no response from my emails.

Hasn't Wayne Frey recently been doing some business with them regarding his Borei project? Might be worth asking him.

I have no trouble contacting him. In fact, I got an email this morning from him.
He just finished up an Oscar for a maritime museum that is beautiful.

Hey Guys, I dont know what it is, whether its selective hearing or not but I made a purchase from him several years ago and havent been able to contact him since. I had hoped that it was an email problem.

Vladimir is a pretty busy guy. I purchased an Akula II kit a few months back and have been working with him to get a pericope shipped which I believe came loose from its parts bag durring shipping and fell out of a small hole which had developed in the shipping box. I feel your frustration as it took a few emails from me to get a response so I think there is actually a partial email issue either getting thru to him or with his replies getting lost across the net maybe. I know he has been busy getting an Oscar build together for a museum.

Good luck

He is done with the Oscar for the museum. It is beautiful!!
As of late, he has been greatly slowed by a broken hand. He does know about the Borei build, and helping me with some odds and ends.

Wayne,

Good to hear but what email address did you use?

Did you out anything special in the 'SUBJECT' line to get his attention?
