    :wave: hello,
    does anyone know anything about Schreiber-Bogen?
    i'm looking to purchase the Meteor but am not sure if it comes via post pre-printed or as a pdf?
    i have tried contacting them but cannot get a response wall1

    my brother served on this ship a few years ago and i would really like to build it for him.
    anyone else built it??

    I haven't built it but I do know that Schreiber-Bogen only produces pre-printed kits. (If you find a downloadable PDF it's a pirated kit and best avoided.)
    Hope this helps.

    oh wow a pre-printed kit.....i think i'll purchase this one as i just read on another forum (german) that its laser cut?!?
    this would be a luxury!
    anyway i'll let you all know of my progress
    ordering now

    ps. i hope my german translation was correct......its either laser cut OR someone is firing a laser at the builder sign1 either way i'm going to buy it

    Yes, they only sell books. They do have downloads at their site, but they are free. I have not heard of them selling downloaded models. sells some of their models. I did a search but the meteor did not come up, though I was surprised at the many other models, at reasonable prices they had. Maybe if you contact Amazon they can order it for you? I am not sure if they do that, but they say the item is sold by
    Amazon", not a third party. They might be able to hook you up with their supplier. :)

    I know the website, but it is a European website, which is why I mention the shipping rates. Actually, I don't know where you are from, so maybe that isn't a problem! :)

    @14.99 euro plus 6 shipping i should land it here (sydney au) for under 20 bucks au.
    i have never made a laser-cut kit so i'm giving it a go.

    How did you find out the shipping rates? I would be interested in finding out how much their models would cost shipped to the states. This may be feasible at similar rates. :)

    email from Schreiber

    thank you very much for contacting us. All our model kits are printed on card board, and we will send them via post. It is not possible to send the model as a pdf-file.

    Let me tell you something about the ordering conditions: You can order on our website, where the link "orders" will lead you to the online shop. If you order for the first time, we will send you a proforma invoice, if the total amount is more than 20,00 EUR (including the postage). You can pay by bank transfer or by PayPal, and we will send out the goods soon after receiving the payment. The delivering term might take two or three weeks.

    Yours sincerely,

    total order was 28 au.....our dollar is fairly strong at the i have been buying lots of stuff from USA and Europe :twisted:

    3 weeks delivery is kinda weird....when i can get stuff delivered from china in 2 days via normal post....oh well

    You Aussies and we Americans seem to be forming quite a strong relationship. Keep buying stuff from U.S.!! :) I really look forward to the pictures of your build. Keep us up on them, Thanks!

    I had just caught that U.G was from Down Unda myself. Their are lots of things you can get there. I think you can even get the Epson Printer with the built in CISS!

    @Dancooper I had the pleasure of taking a train ride through Belgium. Beautiful country! I was quite young, and it was 1973, but beautiful is beautiful. :)

    i just purchased a "souped-up" printer.......they "hook up" an epson to half litre bottles of ink....(i will post pics if you want to see)
    the result is i can print about 600 full colour pages before replacing the ink bottles (20 bucks each)
    not bad huh

    oh....the cost for all this is 280 bucks au
    that includeds the new printer and all ink :thumb:

    next time i'm in Belgium i'm headed to your place Dan for a barbie!!

    Yes, please do post pics. This would be useful ad beneficial information for other members from you country, or that part of the world where you can get them. You can even start a separate thread with all the info and pictures, and update if you have any problems or if you don't! :)

    I don't know much about Schreiber-Bogen, but I am sure they send you a magazine-like book containing the pieces to cut and assemble, like JSC, Modelik and Halinsky.

    This is an example, for a German Dornier Do X airplane.


    Hope this information may help you. :wave:
