    Here's a file that I found somewhere in the forum. You should be able to adapt it to meet your needs.

    Has anyone received their full scale ARCAS from Black Friday yet? I've never ordered from Ken before and was curious as to his "normal" delivery times. Not in a hurry, just want to know what to expect.
    Thanks

    I have only bought from Ken in person, but he is a long-time vendor and a stand-up guy. His stuff lives in a trailer, and he'll need to pull everything out, get it boxed up and delivered to the shipper. He also travels to launches on weekends. Don't worry, you will get your stuff! But I'm guessing it will take him a little time, especially with the number of kits he sold.

    You must determine if these were "pre-order" or "instock". Big difference in delivery time.[do not go by the website status]

    Ok thanks. It's what I assumed. Like I said, I'm not in a rush just wanting to know what to expect.

    I bought some stuff from him a few weeks ago on one of his other sales and it only took a few days for him to get it sent off, then the actual shipping time, which was about a week because I'm on the West coast. Great vendor!

    He has 30+ kits to ship, so I'm not expecting it to be next day shipping. His email response time is top notch and he seems very trustworthy, looking forward to getting my Performer 98.

    Talked to Ken a couple of times recently on the phone ...first order was very quick and professional due to a PayPal issue. Performer 98 is my second order with repeat PayPal issue which he has handled quickly with a follow up phone call ... Just waiting for shipping confirmation now. It's for my son and since he's a mid thirty something manufacturing engineer he's use to drifting timelines.

    I'm not in any rush. I have at least 4 other kits to work on.
    Just as long as it comes with proper fitted parts.

    I've heard some really good things about the fit on his kits. Fingers crossed it stays that way.

    I wish I saw this before the Performer 98 was sold out. That’s a sweet looking rocket and would be perfect for what I want

    I haven't seen anything on a completed Performer 98, only a few videos/photos of the Performer 150.

    I ordered the Performer98 on the 15th (on sale). Got the thankyou email but nothing further. I have tried email and website contact form as well. Looks like he was last on here on the 21st. I haven't sent a msg on here yet. I get the holiday rush/vacations/busy with orders. I am in no major rush, just would like info and tracking number so I can make sure I am around when it gets delivered. Does anyone know where he is?

    He responds very quickly to emails. So far my payment has been processed and he said he will send me the tracking information when he has it. He also said that the kit production ramped up this week so I would assume that your kit should be shipped soon. I would email him as he's a very nice guy and responds quickly.

    His email: kensrockets@rocketmail.com

    Hey Ben, you were right... really fast reply with the direct email you listed. Email sent 2:49pm, got a reply at 3:36pm from his iphone saying the order credit card is charged and sending to Curtis to ship. And I'll get tracking info when it goes out.
    My previous attempts were a reply to the auto order email and also the website based contact, so maybe those are not as direct. I didn't need the rocket immediately, just info because I am not at home all the time right now and don't really want it sitting out front. But thank you again for the info.
    And thank you Ken at performancehobbies.
