  1. Ah excellent - thanks for the update Kursad 😃
  2. Hi Kursad, Have you shipped to Hannants recently? Your early Eagles sheet is still not in stock there - been waiting over a month now!? Chris
  3. I'm currently "building" four of their C-140s. I believe the most charitable word that springs to mine is "appalling". Building the Airmodel vacform would have been quicker and less painful!
  4. Plus if you want current AH-64 stuff, Floyd Werner (Werner's Wings - www.wernerswings.com) is the guy to go speak to 🙂
  5. Hi all, I'm trying to finish off a T-3A from a resin kit (can't remember the manufacturer unfortunately). I'm struggling to find an appropriate prop and spinner (3 blade) and undercarriage - the kit parts were unusable. Does anyone have any ideas where I could take something from - the only alternative is the Heritage (?) kit but they won't provide a set of white metal without buying a complete kit and I'm not going to spend another £30+! Thanks in advance! Chris
  6. There will be something ...appropriate... coming in 2019. More details to follow... Chris
  7. Hi Scooby, It just depends on how big the package is, what's written on it and what mood the inspector is in... It's really annoying - I don't think anyone minds paying the tax and duty if due - but being hit for a $10 "admin fee" on a $15 decal sheet is really annoying!! Such is life I guess... Chris
  8. Hi Kursad, I don't think it's just the USPS - we're (in the UK) increasingly getting caught by our Customs for decals. Unfortunately, they are classed as "decalomanias" rather than "printed papers", which means they attract VAT So now if we buy a single sheet for $14 and then pay $5.50 for shipping, we might be lucky as it's borderline, but if we buy TWO, the order definitely comes in over the threshhold for VAT - so we get charged $11 (handling fee!!) + 20% of the total (including shipping!). Must already cause you enough problems - I can see why some US sellers won't ship overseas! Madness.... Chris
  9. You might want to check Aircraft in MIniature (http://www.aim72.co.uk/) and VideoAviation (http://www.videoaviation.com/ground-support/). Chris
  10. The Canadian flags were on a separate tab I forgot to include :) I didn't draw the intake warning markings - can't remember where I got those from...
  11. Hi Laurent, What scale are you wanting them in? Chris
  12. Kursad - you HAVE to do these in 1/72!! Chris
  13. Very nice job! I've built a few of those and they're not the easiest or best detailed kits...
  14. This won't solve THAT problem unfortunately - it's more to simplify marking AGE and flight line vehicles... But ikar has raised the question about door markings... Chris USAFline
