  1. I waited three months for his B-52 engines. After a couple months I emailed him about the status of my order and the next day he emailed back saying the casts had worn out and had to make new ones. A month later they arrived.
  2. I almost entirely use Model Master enamels and was looking at going to use True North paints. Unfortunately I live in Canada and no one up here seems to carry them. Also after sending two emails to True North about if it’s even possible to order directly from them and get them shipped to Canada I’ve have never gotten a response back. I also don’t think it’s even possible to get them shipped to Canada because Sprue Brothers can’t shipped Model Master enamels up here so I can’t see True North paints being allowed either.
  3. I’m not sure if it’s possible to ship from the US to Canada. I do know that Sprue Brothers can’t ship MM enamels to Canada so I assume shipping True North paints to Canada would be under the same conditions.My main concern is the total cost buying from the US. After paying our horrendous exchange rate, high postage rate and the possibility of paying import duties and/or taxes it would make these paints ridiculously expensive.
  4. I have used MM pretty much since they first came on the market because I really like the way they hand brushed. I have been researching the True North paints brand availability but searches of several Canadian hobby stores have come up empty. Does anyone here know where I can buy True North paints online from a Canadian hobby store? Thanks in advance, Mark
  5. While I'm keeping up hope that some of the later airshows will go on once there is a handle on this virus thing going on (my local Abbotsford Airshow is the second weekend of August) I've already accepted that there probably won't be any airshows this year. I have a feeling that even if the curve is flattened and some of the social distancing restrictions are relaxed will very large gatherings such as airshows, concerts and sporting events really going to be a part of these changes? With how much this has gotten out of control so fast worldwide would it be a wise decision to allow these large gatherings so soon, possibly allowing a second wave of this virus? I also wonder how airshows would do financially because I'm guessing a lot of sponsors may not be able to pony up the money this year, especially for the small town airshows that heavily rely on local businesses rather than large corporations. I hope you all stay safe and healthy during these difficult times. All the best to you all Mark
  6. I’ve tried finding that as well. Nothing on eBay except for one that wants $215 for and Hannants once had them but Are sold out.
  7. Hello everyone I’ve been what seems forever looking for the standard camo decal markings (bottom profile in picture attached) for the Argentine IA-58 Pucara in 1/72 from the Airfix or Special Hobby kits. I emailed Airfix to see if they had any sheets from their kits #’d A73003, A03068 or A77661 but unfortunately they never had any in stock. I also tried to find any aftermarket on EBay or Hannants but no luck either. I will gladly pay for any costs if any of you happen to have these decals and are willing to part with them. Thanks in advance Mark
  8. Hey everyone, I’ve had lots of interest in many Mach2 models and I know they are quite crude when it comes to quality. I also know they take lots of extra work to build. I’ve read many reviews in forums but they were all from many years ago. I was wondering if any of you know if their newer subjects are better quality than their older kits or are they still the same as their older offerings. I have no problem putting in extra work to make reasonable looking model but just want to know that the end result accuracies of the model will be worth spending the money on. Thanks in advance, Mark
  9. Are you sure about this? I get updates from them and I've never received one about the B-1. I also can't seem to find anything about it on their Facebook page.
  10. When I bought a new bottle I wasn’t sure if it was the same as the original Future until I checked the UPC code on the bottle and they were both the same. I then knew it was the same formula.
  11. Jan_CZ, Thank you very much. That’s exactly what I was looking for. Mark
