Amarillo Design Bureau, Inc. is running a deal on "factory second" ships. These ships will have all the major parts (engines, struts, etc.), but the ships themselves will have defects, be it missing metal, too much metal, or missing detail. Each bag will usually have over 20 (a few more if the ships are on the small side) that add up to a pound in weight, so you are paying less than $3 USD a ship. These ships are all from the Starline 2400 series and do not include stands. (Stands are sold separately: starfleetstore.com/miniature-stands-c-105 )

The pound of ships will be packed randomly; we won't know what is in any bag, but we won't stick you with ships of all one empire. For the price of $49.95 USD, we won't know what is in any bag, but we won't stick you with ships of all one empire. For the price of $49.95 USD, we won't be able to pack a bag "just for you."

Many of our fans have found that these ships are good for taking to gaming sessions or for starting their miniature-painting career. These are also good for creating battle-damaged ships. Somehow it doesn't "hurt as much" to further damage an already less-than-perfect ship.

This is a special offer -- when we run out of factory seconds, then we run out of pounds. This deal is only available direct from ADB: starfleetstore.com/damaged-c-12_100/pound-of-ships-p-1196.html

That didn't take long!

I'm surprised that you didn't melt them back down, however (or send them back to your caster to be re-melted).
