  1. Sure hope those who have been bitten by this bug recover fully and soon!!! Well Chris, by the way the EU is moving our border will probably stay closed for a while longer!!!! Got a haircut last week - woohoo - feel much lighter, and in the wallet as well as the hobby stores are open!!
  2. Right below the 'create new account' are the words 'not now' click these and you will get a few minutes of viewing. Of course now that this is out the skin flints will remove it!!??!!
  3. As stated if you use the evil bay you MUST pay close attention to what you click on!!!! The Post Office (PO) at least here in Canada, measures parcels and the size determines the cost! It could be full of well feathers, and the cost stays the same?? I got ripped off by an amazon seller on a DVD (wrong region) so tried to return it, and the cost to return a DVD to England was more then I paid for it!!!??? The seller had access to bulk shipping so lower cost, I don't!!! Global shipping as stated is a joke, to us. So packages get sent to the center(???) and a ? financial company (can't remember name) IMHO guesstimates your duty & taxes, and then off it goes. Well if they are wrong I notice there is no published way by the evil bay to challenge the amount, and do they send a notice of what they are taking from your paypal account and when = NOOOOOOOO. The money just disappears!!! This is some convoluted way that the evil bay thinks it is helping Govt's collect lost duty & taxes - I say let the experts, for me Canada Customs, figure it out, then it gets done right!!!! And the evil bays tracking is totally useless!!! I have one kit that I started to build and evil bay's tracking still had in the post!!! Their estimates are always on the long side, I think, to help the seller, so I started to walk away slowly from that evil bay, don't want to go cold turkey!! Again as mentioned RTFL, very carefully!!!
  4. 2 questions - You indicated the Apache Delta sheet would follow in 72nd?? Will one be able to build different Edwards F-4s? IOW will there be a series of numbers to enable the modeller to build a specific F-4? Thanks
  5. This is great news, well the 72nd part, will there separate numbers so different a/c can be made? I want to do NRF-4C 37744 as I have time in that bird!
  6. To err is human; to really screw up, you need a computer!!!!
  7. Not trying to push, but you brought up the production speed; so how quickly will the 72nd sheet follow this one? Probably going to have to buy some more of those great Academy kits!!! One for each scheme; oh do you have stock in Academy??? 😉 Thanks
  8. WRT the Royal Army version; Will the crest and word 'gunship' both fit on the rocket pod together? I have saved some pics of these Apaches done up that way. No number just the badge and word. Thanks
  9. There's Canuck; http://www.canuckmodels.com/ And Mr. Belcher http://www.belcherbits.com/ slim pickens really.
  10. I am trying to get the 72nd F-15 early years decal but on the site the numbering jumps from ####86 to ####88??
  11. Albion Alloys do a google search. I have .3mm tubes and up.
  12. Mark, some more great sheets, want items on both!!!! Will these be ready for Chattanooga and came we pick up the decals at the show? Thanks
  13. I would really luv to see the bird in the second link since I have 1.1 hrs in the back seat!!!! So if a 72nd Phantom sheet comes along please include it!!!!!!
  14. If you compare the two; at the gun end, there is a marked difference in width, with Monogram being correct. I base that on measurements and common sense, since a company doesn't change the build jigs just because no one is sitting back there!!?!
  15. OK, just for fun dry fit the fuses and compare the stern parts to each other!! You may change your mind about the non-Monogram kit!!?? If you scout around the vapour world you will find a better price for the MoC kit(s)......
