Thanks for quick response and fast shipment! I am enjoying my Arckit! I have built many new creations the past few weeks.

I have not received my reward yet! The email, orders@arckit.com, does not exist for questioning. No response has been given from my messaging. Is there a better way to contact?

Thanks, got my Cityscape XXL pledge, Daughter enjoying building cities :) Doesn't seem great value though even with the kickstarter saving - maybe the prices will get better as you produce more?

Review from Kickstarter
Hi Cheryl. We ended up not creating an XXL kit. The new Cityscape kit is in fact the name we chose instead of CityscapeXL (it is the same size as what the XL would have been). So we sent you 2 x Cityscape kits which is more than what would have been in an XXL kit and significantly more expensive than what you paid. Hope this answers your query sufficiently. Feel free to communicate via info@arckit.com should you have any further questions. Hope you're enjoying your kits.

Hi- I backed the early bird XXL kit but only received two small kits. Can you please advise? Seemingly I backed one thing that was more expensive than what I received... thanks

The set arrived this afternoon in Texas. Wife advised me. Had to wait until I get off work to check it out. Excited.

I was under the impression they were going to ship at the end of last week but have not gotten any tracking info. I did reply to the email asking fir current shipping address. I guess it was received?

Will we get notified of dispatch or get tracking info?

Damien. How many pieces in the Masterplan set. I have seen two boxes. One says 390+ and the other says 365+. Not a big deal. Just curious. Thanks!

Hi Michael, we're starting with Kickstarter orders first. Regards, Damien

I guess the Kickstarter backers will get their sets at the same time as everyone else?

Hi @MichaelSantti.
Yes indeed, we just went live today with our new website and with the launch of our new product range. It has been a frantic and exciting few months to say the least. The factory are now setting up assembly so we should be getting your product out within a week to 10 days. Hope you'll be as impressed as we are : )
Kind regards Damien

Review from Kickstarter
Any new updates? I see the new sets are now available on the website. Very excited!

Review from Kickstarter
It will be nice to get an update on the stage you are. Most of the kickstarter campaign do it bi-weekly. ALso are you sending a pledge manager or a questionnaire? Kind Regards
Christopher Milnes
Review from Kickstarter
Would have been nice to have had some updates, rather than backers having to ask questions to find out how things are going. Looking forward to city building with my daughter :)

Hi @KasonTan, Greetings from a positively hectic Arckit camp. We are getting ever closer. I'm delighted to report that we should have our first products ready to go out by end October/first week of November latest. Thanks for your continued patience. Kind regards. Damien

Hey Damien. Are we close to receiving the kit soon? Thanks, Kason.

Hey Donal, We're almost there. Around 3 weeks away. Tools are at the factory in Wicklow and tests have only just been successfully completed. We are finalising packaging design and intend to commence manufacture in the next 2 weeks. Instead of creating 1 Masterplan Pro box we have decided to offer 3 x Masterplan kits to all who have purchased a Pro kit. Each box will come with 8 x flat pack component trays so they should work out perfect for you class set up. Looking forward to your reaction when you finally receive them. Kind regards Damien

Hi Damien, what's your current expected shipping date? We can't wait to turn our kitchen into a sprawling city. Regards,

Review from Kickstarter
Hi @MichaelSantti, Thanks for keeping in touch. Yes we are still on track. Tools have been completed and are somewhere on the high seas as I write. We expect them to land in Ireland within the second week of September. From there will get them to our factory in Co. Wicklow so we can do some final tests before release anything. At the same time we are finalising our packaging designs etc. So with any luck we will start to get the very first kits out to you and all our Kickstarter backers towards the end of September or at worst by mid October. It'll be worth the wait : )
Kind regards
Damien

Greetings.
Is is still looking like late September for the release of the exciting new products?
Can’t wait! LOL
Best wishes.

Review from Kickstarter
Hi @MikeSantti, We're full steam ahead. Tools are in final stage of completion with an expected date for dispatch within 1st week of August. Shipping will take approx. 5/6 weeks to arrive in Ireland. Once they arrive at the factory, we will do further testing. So all in all we are still on track to get Masterplan in its box by end September. Hope you can wait. Kind regards Damien

@Philip Cartwright, thank you for following up. The process has just been completed in the background with Kickstarter, and so we will be contacting all of our fantastic backers within the next few days to advise on distribution of rewards.

Hi, just wondering when questionnaires will be sent out? (or what's the next stage)

Review from Kickstarter
@Anna, thank you for your message. We are currently waiting for Kickstarter to finalise the campaign and complete transfer of funds. This will take up to 14 days from the end of the campaign, and we will be contacting all backers in the meantime regarding rewards.

Great news! So happy. I wish I could have gotten a 2nd set but the wifey only approved one right now. I do have a 240 Arckit set though already.

Hi Phil, yes you're right, we were over 30k and just had one cancelation so we're almost there. Fingers crossed.

Review from Kickstarter
@Philip Cartwright, thanks for the message. Yes, please adjust your pledge amount by €75 to include the A90. We will be sending out surveys to backers when the campaign finishes to confirm rewards selected.
Philip Cartwright
Review from Kickstarter
Hi, I've gone for the €19 Arckit CityScape, but I'd also like the A90 kit too. Do I just need to add €75 to my current pledge (do I need to add more for shipping)? Many thanks! Can't wait to get my hands on these!

Thanks Damien. I'm in.

Review from Kickstarter
Hi @SteveLawrie. Absolutely all Arckit products, including Arckit Cityscape, can be dismantled and reassembled to continuously create something altogether different. Kind regards Damien
Steve Lawrie
Review from Kickstarter
Hi, is the Cityscape reusable? i.e. Can it be dismantled, stored and used again? Thanks.
Damien Murtagh
Review from Kickstarter
Hi @Bad_syntax and @Lee Sweeney.
The components and kits really can be envisaged at a variety of scales depending on their context and how they are being used, primarily 1:1000 & 1:500 and 1:250. Hope this helps. From a games point of view I really think that they could be adapted and envisaged at alternative scales.
Many thanks for your support.
Kind regards
Damien

Review from Kickstarter
What scale are the buildings in. Have a few folks looking at it who war game, at 1/285 to 1/330 and are wondering how well these would work, but saw no mention of the scale on the product info page. If it is close could bring in a few more folks.

Review from Kickstarter
What actual scale can these be suitable for? I
