Response to NewLONE STAR MODELS Web Site roll out sale (edit)


The site looks very nice. However, as I browsed around, I noticed some items that I think need correction/improvement. I was going to send this as a private message, but decided to post it here instead- to save other volunteer proofreaders from the task of reporting items you already have had reports about.....

All of this is offered in the spirit of constructive feedback-- we all benefit if your site is a huge success, and leads to the production and sale of even more goodies.....

1. No scales are listed in the product titles, and some don't have the scale mentioned in the descriptions, either.
When I arrived at the site. I clicked on the "store" button. That loads the "all" view by default-- so I was presented with a screen full of image tiles for the various products. That view allows me to go straight to any product item I click on, and the info often isn't there, either. I discovered that there are filters, so I can limit my browsing to "1/48 scale kits" for example, but this is the only way I was able to figure out what scale the Sparrowhawk kit is. (After I had wrongly guessed 1/72 and then 1/32!)

2. Typo: "LSM CC44006 C/KC97 Tab=nker"

3. Shipping charges for orders of "$0 to $50" and $50 to $100" orders are listed, but nothing for over $100. (And which charge appies to a $50 order?)

4. On your main page welcome, the last sentence needs a period.

5. Contact Us page: Need a space after the period before the letter I:
....send me a message.I generally....

6. The Model Repair and Construction page needs a title and an introduction at the top of the page. Something like this:
Model Repair and Construction Services

I offer repair services for all types of models, and also offer completed models for sale. Scroll down to see some examples of my offerings and cababilities.

Interested in these services?

6. I didn't check the prices for everything-- but I saw someone else already reported a possible pricing error....

All of the above are based on my first 10 minutes or so of browsing the site-- and this feedback is meant to help you improve the site and the customer experience....

I'd be happy to elaborate on any of the above- feel free to contact. me directly.
