Response to One possible advantage of Sprue obtaining Great Models

why you guys are having such a difficult time with the SB search feature. I simply type the subject I am looking for....F-100, Abrams, canopy mask...

If I want to narrow it down say for a specific scale I add that to the search...
1:48 F-100, 1:35 Abrams, 1:72 canopy mask B-17

searching for Jets or even 1:48 Jets is too vague as most product descriptions don't use the keyword "Jets"

If you know the manufacturer, SB search recognizes that as a search parameter. Trumpeter F-105...Revell Hawker Hunter

If you are just generically searching for stuff, use the links on the left column of the cart page...these break down into more specific areas as well...Aftermarket, Kits etc

Keywords from the product description are what the search feature uses. Start with the basic generic keywords, then progress from there if necessary. Any and all items related to say a "B-24 Liberator" will come up...kits, decals, PE, Decals, Resin, Masks in all scales. Again, if you want specific scale, search for that scale and the subject...1:72 B-24J, so you see those products relevant to your search criteria.

Happy Modeling!

Oh and if you think or are thinking you'd like to show the others how to run a hobby retail operation, tune into this weeks show we're going to tell you somethings you probably didn't know but need to know if you are.
