Hello Mr. Kim of Pontosmodel,

I am a big fan of your products.
I have been trying to contact without any success. Got no reply until now to all the e-mails i have sent you.
Do you have any distributor for Europe?
Many thanks!
Best regards!
Francisco

I will add my thanks for great work Kim & letting us know here about your products

couple of questions for you -

I read a post saying
Quote:
All our Deck products included Black Anchor chain(about 20cm long). This black is matt and hard to scratch


I looked on your website but there is no mention of included chain - so do you provide chain for your wooden decks especially the musashi one?
can I get extra chain as well if I would like? if yes how much?

it looks like the deck is in a complete sheet & cut through then stained for the areas of model required but no the excess. am I correct with this & if so can the excess be stained the same please if I wanted -reason I am looking to modify a kit & will need extra wood for the deck that is not included/needs to be modified - eg removing some AA gun mounts so will need wooden deck there to replace it

will you be doing barrels for Yamato?

look forward to your response

I just noticed Dylan's photos of your 1/350 Independence deck. Great! Will you be doing these also for 1/700, say for a CVL-24 Belleau Wood ?

Hopefully you'll get into the 1/700 series, its a good sized market being usually cheaper to build. From what Ive seen, your decks look fantastic. If I ever get into 1/350, I know where to get my decks :thumbs_up_1:


Already 9 BBs of 1/700th have been developed and just waiting for manual printing.
I also hope you can meet us again at 1/350 soon.
Thank you
Kim

Only time can solve this.

Hello Kim,


I'm waiting now for a similar deck for Essexes and for French BB Richelieu.
As for Richelieu, will it be possible to have it tinted natural wood?

We've bought and got this French ship kit.
If I make this Wooden deck as kit standard, I can make within one day.
But I would and should study more for the colors of deck or shape of deck because I am sure Trumpeter might have some faults in realizing deck.
I also would scribe Barrels and Mast an yardarms for this ship
At this point, You French can give me some advices for these matters.
I will follow your advices because I do not know detailly for this Richelieu.

Thank you

Hello Kim,

I just received your Independence flight deck.
:woo_hoo:
AFAIK it's the first time a US carrier kit wooden deck is made with the grain of the wood in the right direction, i.e. transversally.
That makes your deck highly realistic, but somewhat difficult to handle.
This deck is really awesome and almost to scale with a thickness of .26mm, giving 91mm to scale. The PE accessories are very nice too.
Love the lift PE borders.

I'm waiting now for a similar deck for Essexes and for French BB Richelieu.
As for Richelieu, will it be possible to have it tinted natural wood?

If you typed that exact address, then it's spelt wrong - there's a wrong 'n' in the 'pontonmodel' part, which should be an 's', as in 'pontosmodel'.

This is goods news. With 1/700, I think you will be reaching a market that you would have otherwise passed by, with only offering 1/350. Many of us do not find the larger scales practical.


Wood sheet may be some thicker for 1/700 though the effect is better than painting.
So I am searching the thinner material for 1/700 or making sheet.
I would not be YESMAN but I will try to do my best for as many decks as possible.

Thank you
Kim
