    Bob MDC reacted to Artful69 in Martin Pegg's "Henschel Hs 129 Panzerjäger"   
    I bought one ...
     
    Hard to find any decently sized hard cover textbook for less that $100 AUD these days.
    Most of my hard cover Panzer stuff from Osprey was $75+
    ... Some of which (authored by Robert Forczyk - another one of those "reinvent history" twits), I regret taking the punt on!
     
    The Classics release by Martin Pegg is considered by most out there to be the best Hs.129 reference going around.
    ... And since I like the Ju.87, 88 and Fw.190 books in the same series - I would have loved to improve my collection.
     
    It arrived yesterday ... safe and sound ... 
    This is basically a revised work, by the same author, including new material.
    ... And ... at 60 GBP, it's available for a LOT less than the original release is online ... if you can find one for sale.
    The last one I saw on eBay went for triple that value.
     
    As a bonus ... even without the dust jacket (which I was initially disappointed about - but built a bridge as you do) ... it sits just only about 10mm shorter than the original Classics books do.
    I had somehow thought that, with Richards description, it would be much smaller.
     
    I feel, since its designed as a reference work - not JUST for modelers ... it has something for everyone.
    I like it  ... and it's well worth the cash I shelled out for it ...
    I'm looking forward to the Ar.234 and He.219 books to be released ...

    Pickled herring is delicious if you drink half a bottle of Linie Aquavit before and
    the other half bottle after you had it.

    Hi Guys,
    We have had a few mails about MDC are no longer trading.
    I can assure you this is far from the truth we are alive and well at Theddlethorpe !!
    I admit we had some site and mail problems during an enforced upgrade by our store provider but all is now well and looking to the future.
     
    Hope to have some new items shortley as always no information until we have stock ready ( I could have a rant about lists that are published with no hope in hells chance of attaining ) but that could be for a later post, how about "grumpy old buggers rant" (hope I can say that).

    I second Mr Tool Cleaner "it does what it says on the tin" 
    I had a dried up jar of Mr Surfacer a few drops a couple of hours and usable again, I even use it to clean my tools if I have been using epoxy pastes.
    It does smell and not to kind to styrene

    I think the Special Hobby are based on the Tempest  the rails are ok but the mountings are wrong for the Typhoon and Mosquito 
    Our rockets are for the Typhoon but we also have the correct mounting stubs for the Mosquito.
    The best reference for rocket placement is Mosquito FB VI   by Dave Brown airframe systems and wartime usage.
    and for Banff Wing is Banff Strike Wing at War by Les Taylor you can still get this at reasonable price if you trawl a bit but some sites are silly money..
    If you need anything drop me a PM
