Turn off the builders and watch the niche market we occupy get even smaller my friends. The reason DISTRIBUTORS exist is to represent and consolidate numerous manufacturers products under one roof providing an inventory warranty and technical support system often in a different country or continent than the manufacturer. This addition to the supply chain should enable smaller retailers to improve their competitiveness. One frustration in this system with todays emphasis on internet sales is the distributor who competes with the retailers he is supposed to be supporting. This can lead to reduced supply increased prices and an unfair (to the consumer) marketplace. And while the global marketplace has allowed us all shorten the delivery cycle and to become more price conscious and price savvy it has also become a thorn in the side of the retailer particularly the small business person.
An Admiralty style model could also be a cross section of the hull. This is where all the planking is in place however the model would only represent part of the ship such as the bow mid section or stern. The advantage of building an Admiralty ship model to the ship model builder is that you can add detail to better represent the purpose and era of the ship. Using the Bounty as an example representation can be made for the galley armament room carpentry shop hold captains quarters etc. The Bountys botanical mission was to pick up bread fruit plants so some plants can be added as well as an area that would have been used for the studying of plants and animals discovered along its journey. Prior to starting the ship model the builder should not only study the ship that is being represented but also the era in which the ship was built. Ship building changed from century to century.
Certain RETAILERS are known to dramatically increase their list prices and then offer fabulous sales advertising 60% or more off MSRP. I know Im attracted to a 60% savings sign! I also know that I have to be aware of the real regular price what other retailers are offering for the same object and how service differs between retailers. The net effect of this illusion is an inflated advertised discount which should leave end users - YOU - with a bad taste in your mouth and a determination to avoid retailers who try to put one over on you. Ahhh the internet! Such a wonderful tool it has opened up chains of supply never seen before. It offers the consumer a chance to browse without leaving the comfort of their living room. But what about the consumer who lives in a rural area the fellow who cant get high speed service? Or the consumer who without access to the internet at all? Or the customer who wants to touch and browse? Often times these customers are overlooked in our race to go digital. There are many fly-by-night radio-control and wooden ship model retailers out there.
