Anyone notice that Battlegate Games is having a sale for their third anniversary? Their Ski-Doo is discounted down to $1. Of course shipping is $10 per item so I only ordered 1. This seems to be a pretty good deal but I guess we'll only know once we see the actual product.

Do let us know how it turns out. I have seen a lot of bad press on BattleGate stuff, so I'm really interested to hear your thoughts.

I waited a month (in the UK), but the parts arrived. I think he must produce in batches. The 3D printed parts were great; but the resin cast parts were poor. I did however get some free stuff in the box...

No I haven't yet received the ski-doo. From what I've seen and the few parts I've ordered, you get a mixed bag but most of the time, yet get what you pay for. I'm hoping that some of the "big ticket" items are of a better quality but I'm withholding judgment until I see the train.

They haven't sent emails of mine either but with my previous order, it took a few weeks for them to email an update. I think Ian may be right; the people running Battlegate may produce in batches.

Well it's been a week since my last post and just a week under a month since my purchase and I'm sorry to say but there's still been no update from Battlegate on the Ski-Doo. I haven't lost too much hope though, it was this way with my last order as well.

It's now been a month and 6 days (including today) or 5 weeks and a day since I ordered this and not a word from Battlegate. I will try sending them an email and if I don't get a response, I'm submitting a PayPal complaint.

Thanks to you both for posting updates - am interested to see how this turns out (against my better judgement, am still occasionally tempted by that custom Harley they did).

I also haven't received my order yet. I sent an email without a response so I sent another one. Hopefully he'll respond. This guy's reputation is so poor in the modeling community you'd think he'd do everything he can to try to NOT damage it further.
