  • I guess part of the problem is a sort of cultural difference: Most users in Europe will enter the price of a model including VAT (around 20%) because that's how goods are legally offered here. But most users in North America will put in the price exclusive of sales tax (which is typically much lower and doesn't always apply especially when buying)... because that's how goods are legally offered there. It's got little to do with the currency itself.

    Now how much attention you really pay to the value depends on you: Do you buy models to enjoy them or do you want to make money off them?

    Thanks, DiMA team, for keeping the site up and running.

      That's a very good point. Unfortunately here in UK, HM Customs have recently become very proactive in that anything bought from outside the EU with a customs declaration value of 15 or over will be charged an additional 20% VAT tax plus a whopping 8.00 GDP handling fee, all paid before delivery. Therefore the price paid varies between country and makes it no longer viable to buy from outside the EU.

      • Just love the Database and Personal Collection features,just one thing if this could be implemented and that is: If you have a model that is not in the database for some reason or other, and you have to add it manually into the Custom section of your Collection, would the ability to add your own photos into the description list.I'm sure this would be a welcomed addition by all.

        • The DiMA logo was recently changed to VBulletin on the header of the site, is this permanent or are we going to see the DiMA logo come back?

            • Love Dima.
              Is there maybe a way to tweak the database advanced search with the following (not critical, just a nice to have).

              The Boeing customer code for SAA planes are -44. Ex Boeing 747-400 model becomes 747-444.
              Now airlines sell their planes after a while and they end up at other operators.
              I thus want to search the database for all occurences of a boeing model which ends in 44. Don't mind doing each boeing product individually, but would like an option to type in the full search term "Boeing 707-344" etc.
              (oh and I ask this here as I hope it would at least show something else as the top topic other than the one which is currently being shown). Win-win.

                I love this site! After some issues with W900 and DA.C (especially the lack of model database updates), I decided to keep my collection data just here and in a MS Excel/LibreOffice file.

                Just a question: I used to list my wants list on Waffle site, but now I can't access and update it anymore (the site show "You must be logged into Waffle Collectibles
                in order to use the Want List." message, even if I'm already logged there). I tought Waffle had moved this wantlists to DIMA databases, but when I receive the weekly e-mail with my want list (with the models available for sale), the list shown is based on Waffle website wantlist, not on DIMA list. Why?

                Best regards,
                Daniel
