I got the same email. Sad to see another one go. I think Luis's daughter took over the business. It's a shame they couldn't compete with other retailers offering free shipping as their rates are high. Combined with the high prices of models ( Gemini 747 going for about $46usd) it's no wonder retailers can't make ends meet.

Sad to see another supplier go away. But there are good prices for Gemini military airplanes, especially the P-8 and the KC-135. About $20-25 below list.

I also get the exact same e-mails all the time, so wonder if he is really closing down or not!

Their shipping rates, to Canada especially are insanely high. I will say this though, I was able to purchase some nice recent Aeroclassics models in bulk at liquidated prices. All together, I was able to purchase the Air Transat, El Al and Sun D'or 757's, the Cayman Airways 737 Max, The Porter Airlines Q400 and Icelandair 757-200 for 200 USD including shipping.

I also picked up a few 1/200 items at some decent prices last night, and may get a few more later.
His shipping costs were what also stopped me from buying more in the past. Still sad to see him go, another competitor is always welcome.

They are definitely on the higher side of rates, but I still managed to get the Gemini200 Alaska Q400 New Colors for 39.99, and Gemini200 American MD-83 for 55.95. After shipping, it came out to 104.99, which for those two models feels like a bargain!

I was going to buy 3 models. All in 400 scale. But shipping was 27 bucks. So. I decided otherwise. I could go to another store and get the same 3 models not on sale and pay about the same. Shipping kills.

Same for me. I had 3 1/200 models, each about $55 - $60, and shipping was over $24.00. But if I added one more model, it upped the shipping to $25.00, so I ordered the 4.

Is it really shipping? Or is it like eBay, where 'shipping costs' are used to inflate a lower price, or up a profit percentage?

The shipping costs are inflated. But the product costs were never any cheaper than competitors.

I also noticed that he added "shipping insurance" to the bill. it was not an option like other retailers, just an automatic add on.

20 bucks for shipping on 3-4 models is cheap. Why all the complaints? I spend around 30 bucks quite often just on 1 model because most of what I want is only found overseas. The savings you are getting from this sale makes up for the shipping cost.

I had to laugh at this closing sale! Went to order one AC 720 model and lowest cost shipping option was $18.00 and change to Virginia from Florida. Calculated the cost for the same model with other retailers and the other retailers regular prices with lower shipping was the same cost as Adamjets liquidation sale price. Snap em up suckers! !

Is Adamjets truly going out of business? it seems strange that even though there is a liquidation sale, they recently received the most current batch of releases from Gemini, Aeroclassics, etc... it seems fishy.

maybe not. saying final sell and refuse return of defect models. but paypal will force the seller accept return if any defect or not satisfaction. lol.

No wonder now why they're going of business, absolutely horrible service. They shipped my package and then a week later send me an email that a few of the models I ordered were out of stock. They still shipped the remaining models and now I lost all the value of purchasing these models in bulk.

Didn't bite. Shipping costs are WAY too high. I'll stick with the sellers I know I can trust and that ship at a fair rate.

I did place an order on Sunday night, and so far no word that it is shipping. I'm sure he got a lot of orders due to the closing, but I should have heard something by now I would think.

AdamJets was my primary supplier when I first started collecting models. Since I ship to a Miami FL address, shipping costs and FL sales taxes made AdamJets about 20% higher than say Waffle or ezToys.


I'm really sorry to see them closing down.

Seems like a repeat from the last catastrophic sale they tried to have when they were supposedly going out of business. That was so misleading as from what I had heard it was just being run by another immediate family member! I bought one during the first out of business sale, but didn't bite from scamjets this time!

I’ve always had excellent service from them. I ordered 8 planes the other evening and received them 3 days later. Their shipping rates were higher, but it was always two shipping, very nice. Wish them the best...
