    Beat this for customer service

    Couple of weeks ago I sent Special Hobby a message on their facebook page regarding replacement parts for one of their kits. I was sorting some kits and boxes out when I came across the Tempest Mk.V kit which I had started some time ago but then got put to one side for some reason or other. Checking the contents out I found that the bottom half of the wing was broken. I asked Special Hobby if I could buy the wing and undercarriage bay parts. After 2 weeks of hearing nothing from them, I was about to give up. Today I received a package from them with the parts requested in it and no mention of cost. Can’t thank them enough.

    2018 World Cup

    Only 1 World Cup I’ll be watching and that’s next year in Japan. Can’t watch 22 multi millionaires chasing a bag of wind and acting like they’ve been shot with a 12 bore shotgun.

    You'll probably know the pub that I'm on about, Frampton Arms. Good pint and good food

    WWII German seat harness

    I'd seen those but for some strange reason I thought they were only for the pilot. Never mind some day I might grow a second brain cell.

    1/48 Revell / Hasse 92sqn Phantom

    That's is one nice looking F-4. Where's the runway base from? Just recieved the ZM 1/48 scale decals for the 74sq F-4J (UK) ready for when they re-release their 'J' version later this year.

    Oh dear, what have I done?

    May be looking for new living accomodation when the wife finds out what I've done today. Went to my LHS to collect the Airfix 1/72 H.P. Victor B.Mk.2 that I had on order and got talking to the owner about kits. He then dropped out that he had a 1/32 HK Lancaster on pre-order for a customer. Now I've gone and added my name to the pre-order list. I can see swmbo not being best pleased. What do you think, flowers and chocolates or should I start packing now?

    Oh dear, what have I done?

    No, will let me know as soon as they find out themselves.

    Oh dear, what have I done?

    Tried that and lost big style. Found out that it's hard to hide a finished Tamiya 1/32 F-15C.

    Err, no

    Do335. Which one?

    Appologies if this has been asked before so here goes. As ZM amd HKM both produce the Do335A, which is rated as the better kit?

    Do335. Which one?

    Should have said in my original posting that I mean fit and ease of build. I do like ZM kits, but for me I think they are over engineered as I'm not all that bothered about everything being on show. That of course is my view. Saying that, if the ZM kit was the better of the 2 then I would go with that one.

    Next Tamiya 1/32 is

    I’d possibly get 2 of these. Can’t beat getting your hands on a pair of big jugs

    Next Tamiya 1/32 is

    Hopefully a Mossie B.Mk.IV or XVI

    HK Lancaster.

    If I managed to get one of the kits it would probably be PA177 HW-J Jug and Bottle of 100q RAF Grimsby. While visiting relations in Grimsby, we went for a meal in a pub called Jug and Bottle. This had the walls covered in photos from most of the local bomber bases. Also Found out that the pub was called Jug and Bottle as it was built on the actual pan that PA177 used.

    A bit of an ask

    I've looked on the traders section for a couple of items that's been offered for sale and noticed that some replies have just pm sent. Can I ask that people state what item they are sending a pm about. I've found that I've wasted time asking about something, only to find out that somebody else has bought it. This obviously only applies when there are numerous items for sale in the original posting.

    My wife's a star

    As it's my birthday later this month, my wife bought me a set of limited edition of books. I'm forever reading about the exploits of the SAS, SBS, SOE and LRDG in the second world war. Earlier this year I was listening to the Chris Evans breakfast show on radio 2 when he did an item on an ex member of the SAS who had researched and written 3 volumes that lists every serving SAS and LRDG member that was killed in action up to 1947. The books give a brief history into their life, how they were killed and where, if known, they are buried. The complete set is only run to 800 prints. I told the wife about them and she went and ordered them. Volume 1 is about North Africa and the Middle East, volume 2 is about Central and Eastern Mediterranean and volume 3 is about North West Europe. They arrived this morning and now have pride of place on my book shelf.
