Last year did a CinC order for some 1/2400 modern ships. Contacted them as a few items were listed as out of stock, was told they would likely never be back in production (mold issues I guess).

Since I am getting into 6mm WWII and Moderns, checked their site and a lot of what I would want to order is listed as out of stock. Wondering if anyone knows if this is the same issue? (old molds that won't be replaced).

A shame as CinC had a number of unique items you could not get elsewhere (or if you can, not at that quality and price).

I have heard rumors (here?) about slow deliveries so when I saw an advertiser offering a couple OV-10s I bought them from the advertiser instead.

Can't speak to the mold /stock issues, though it's clear there are fewer items available from the original C in C catalog. However,, service is another matter. Placed an order for some miniatures in February and had them in a couple of weeks. Wouldn't call that bad service.

Greetings,

A couple months ago, I ordered some modern US micro-armor packs from PFC CinC. My order showed up in a couple weeks. The casting on my vehicles was superb, as good as it always had been in the past.

However, before I made the order, I noticed that CinC's modern US infantry figures were out of stock, which I really wanted to get. (The US modern infantry weapons guys are still available.) I sent an email inquiry to PFC CinC which was answered in about five or six days. The short response I received was that these particular infantry figures needed to be redesigned so that they'd be sturdier castings for gaming. No ETA was given.

I'm a little disappointed that the out-of-stock stuff might be gone for good. Still, I have to accept the fact that I probably can't buy all the 1/285 stuff I need (er, want!) from just one vendor.

This past week, I made another order to CinC for some WWII stuff.
