It's been 4 months since I paid for some of the unpainted resin ships, that were "Now Shipping" back then, according to the D20 Entertainment website, and Ken Whitman's statement, included along with photos of them here, on CotI.

He also mentioned back in August, that they were finally in stock, and would be "shipping" in the next week. He again posted pics of them here on CotI, showing a large collection of them in what appears to be his residence, so apparently the issue isn't inventory, it seems he just can't pack and ship them very quickly.

2 - 4+ months to pack and ship products that you claim to have in hand, and that you show to customers in order to get them to send you funds seems like an awfully long time.

Priority Mail delivery only takes 2 - 3 days to anywhere in the USA. Perhaps a little longer if he ships via UPS.

Ken also hasn't responded to a single one of the three e-mail inquiries about my order, nor has he responded to the Paypal dispute, and now claim, apparently, either.

Some people have been allegedly waiting as long as a year, or more for their items. In another case, again, allegedly, a person filed a Paypal dispute 4 - 5 months ago, and was promptly told by Ken that the Traveller spaceships just arrived, and he would ship them out to him right away, so he dropped the dispute.

Ken allegedly never shipped the items promised, and it is now impossible for the guy to re-open the dispute with Paypal, due to their policies, so the guy is out of luck, sadly.

Don't let that happen to you.

And now, Mr Whitman has blocked me from posting on his Spinward Traveller page and deleted my comments.

Better take screencaps of his d20 Entertainment and Ken Whitman & Associates page quickly, before he does the same to them.

Yep, since a lot of stuff has been deleted from the D20 Entertainment site, e.g. Traveller Resin and Metal Spaceship offers, t-shirts, posters, CDs, scripts, books, etc., based upon different postings I've read from others.

I have a copy of the Limited Edition and Plain Resin Traveller Spaceship offers, from the D20 webpage downloaded, if anyone needs that info to support a claim, or claims. I was able to find them by typing in key-word info, in Yahoo though, directly, just recently, so you might give that a try first, as well.

I ran across a posting just the other day from some poor guy who paid for a 20 Vessel, Resin Traveller Spaceship Set, at the low, discounted price of $1,000.

I have some luck from time to time locating old pages on the waybackmashine ... Wayback D20 Entertainment Search

I also found the Spinward Traveller Store on the Waybackmachine

Ken Sent me my ships, finally.

They were mailed on the 13th of October. I asked for a refund on the 3rd. This is not a refund

Ken - Where should I ship them back to to get the REFUND I asked for?

I emailed Mr Whitman about receiving the ships. I also asked Mr Whitman about rerunning the ships to get my refund, as I asked him ten days before he posted the ships.

I also copied Mr Miller in the email.

I will probably never hear back from My Whitman. Either way, I will never again do business with him nor any project he has anything to do with.

Looks like some of these are now posted on E-Bay.

So, how did Noble Knight get these models when there are people who purchased them directly from Ken Whitman and d20 Entertainment who haven't received them?

Ken - can you shed some light on this?

I got my scout ship yesterday.

Now I am just waiting for my unpainted Beowulf.
