Does any one know of a US seller of pre-printed cruel seas ships that does not charge $15.00 USD for postage? I tried to purchase a $6.00 USD printed MGB mini and was asked to pay $15.00 USD for postage on it so I opted out. I hope to find some help here.

Sadly, USPS Priority Mail rates are just crazy, and have been for some time, even for domestic shipping.

You might get lucky and get someone to put it in a small box for you, which should run a little less.

Otherwise, club and/or group buys seem to be the only answer to this.

Which model of MGB are you having printed, and any chance you are on the West Coast, since I might be interested in one or more MGBs as well, if they are the right model.

I'm interested in the neat looking little, BPB MGBs (early to mid-war model, up until 1943/1944, IIRC), or BPB MGB/MTBs (1944 to the end of the war, IIRC, but could also be late 1943, I suppose) with the whale-back cockpit, though I'd be interested in the shorter style, late MTB cockpit too.

I'd like at least a 2 Pdr. on the foredeck, and a 6 Pdr. would be neat too (even better if they can be swapped out with magnets).

I'm interested in 2 – 4 of each, if available.

Thresher01, I went to Etsy and typed in Cruel Seas 3D printed models and two (2) versions of the MGB popped up from the same seller for $6.18 USD. Hope this helps you out?

Thank you. I will check that out.

Ask for small, flat-rate shipping, Priority Mail, with the USPS. That should still only run about $8.00 USD or so, maybe even less, and with a little insurance coverage for you for free.

Remember that the designs of the WWII ships of the Royal Navy are still under Crown Copyright, and makers of models thereof should check with Buckingham Palace about royalties due.

Take a look in the Cruel Seas – Dock Office group on Facebook, there are several additional MTB/MGB models there. I posted an STL of a BPB 72' MTB (based on MTB467), one of the craft fitted with a 6pdr. Also some MA/SBs
