We have had a lot of activity lately on the advertiser front and I just wanted to publicly thank our many supporters that help keep the site online and our many activities funded. If you speak with any of these vendors via phone orders please make sure to mention where you saw their ad and how much you appreciate their support of the KitMaker Network.

As for the particulars....

DragonUSA has purchased ads in ALL our ad zones for a full year!!

Great Models has secured our coveted search banner at the top of the site for an unspecified time period.

Hobby Link Japan has purchased a year long side banner campaign on all our sites.

Internet Hobbies has decided to try out our box ads.

And of course there are many other vendors that have been very supportive to us over the past few years (in no particular order).

Lucky Models
Hobby Easy
Alpine Miniatures
Roll Models
Backyard Armor
Military Miniatures Warehouse
RedFrog Hobbies
CNE Models
Gares Designs & Creations

I have noticed the ads and must say I do like the easy click through on MG.

Thanks to all advertisers

I have to thank them as well. All of my online purchases have been through these advertisers for about a year now.

Wow, four years ago, advertisers were just a dream. You've done a great job establishing the site.

Lucky Model has received 3 orders from me in the past 4 months, and I tried them at first from a link here. I'd say companies that advertise here are pretty savvy, getting their name out in front of thousands of modelers with credit cards and weak wills... :-) :-) .

Yup i certainly do find the advertisements here very useful as i cant get everything i need from my LHS.

Great to see the Big A becoming the hub of kit manufacturers and sellers.

A big thanks to all the advertisers!

And... an equally big thank you to all those vendors that send us review samples!


p.s. Jeremy... I think you mean the Big "K"
