    That looks pretty nice. I hope that people enjoy them and get good use out of them.

    SJS's website and storefront have been updated with the new CO2 regulators, Hobbywing Electronics, and the new Ship Kit Discount system. This discount is good for $5 off of a Ship Kit per qualifying component, up to the maximum of 7 components.

    Please note, due to limitations with the online store programming, you can theoretically put a Ship Kit + 7 gun boards in your cart and it'll discount all of them. That is not the intent of the discount program. SJS reserves the right to modify such orders to the following maximum items per ship kit:

    (2) Gun Boards
    (2) Brushed Pump Controllers
    (2) 1060 ESC
    (2) WP10BL60 ESC
    (2) SKY-60A ESC
    (1) Regulator

    Great! Will need a few of those after the new year.

    Any plans for a 3oz in the line up?

    I can't find a supplier for a bottle that small without an absurd price or 1k+ qty minimum order. Anything that can fit a 3.5oz can fit a 5, so I worried about the 5.

    Some more SJS news this week:

    SMS Blucher is officially up on the website as a pre-order as we wait for the wooden decks to arrive. They are expected the first week in December. By pre-ordering, I can start production for your kit ASAP so when the decks arrive I can just box it up and send it out.

    I've also added a "Buy me a Coffee" item on the store. If you're a fan of what SJS is doing for the hobby but don't necessarily want a T-shirt, etc, you can buy me a coffee. You'll get a sneak peak at whatever it is I'm working on behind the scenes and a picture of the coffee you specifically bought.

    SJS News:

    SMS Blucher is fully in stock and the first two units shipped out last week.

    Solenoid valves have sold out, restocking order has been placed.

    USS Fargo should be ready for release this weekend.

    DKM Graf Spee should be ready hopefully before the end of the month.

    The 5oz tanks are a decent investment in capital, I am working towards that as a goal right now. The best way to make tanks happen sooner rather than later is to buy that kit you were thinking about since August. In fact, buy two of them! :woot:

    Will you have blue prints for the Graf Spee?

    Hello there :)

    I don't stock or sell ship plans at this time. Only 3d printed ship kits with superstructure etc ready to assemble. And component parts.

    SJS News/Update:

    German Deutschland class heavy cruiser Admiral Graf Spee is ready, and will be up on the website tomorrow:

    American Fargo-class light cruiser, USS Fargo is about 95% finished and will be up on the site once I have fully wrapped up the superstructure details:

    image.png

    The Fargo hull is 100% identical to a Cleveland class cruiser, and could be built as a Cleveland using alternative superstructure. The Fargo hull is also within all margins of error to be used as an IRCWCC Brooklyn or Wichita class cruiser, with appropriate alternative superstructure.

    Making solid progress on USS Midway.

    This hull is a very large commitment in terms of material and stocking wooden decks for it. I generally won't keep Midway flight decks in stock, and they will need to be made to order resulting in this hull taking a bit longer from order placed to fulfilled. An alternative is to just provide the interior deck hatches and then a paper template for the flight deck. It's almost 7 feet long!

    Also just received the hull body for the Tennessee class ACR. I am personally excited for this one (once again beautiful job @Beaver ):

    Exciting news, we just received our largest wooden deck order to date. Some of these ships are still being worked on, but some of these ships were released as pre-sales and are now ready for full sale.

    Midway (we *already* sold out. Contact me if interested)
    Wasp restock
    VDT restock + update to V2
    Victory Ship
    Langley
    Memphis ACR
    1915 PA Class
    Pensacola
    Erin
    Baltimore
    Tiger

    We are also putting together a restock on solenoids. By request from the cave people who still run 6 volt, we are ordering 6 volt solenoids. You can always fire a 6 volt solenoid at 12 volts but it's much more difficult to do the opposite.

    I have not yet updated the website to reflect all of these new ship kits, but they should all be up as presale if they were otherwise ready and just waiting on decks.
