ah! so it did finaly happen. from what you have said to me in the past Colin, it was a matter of when not if.

Good luck with taking Frieghtdog full time :)
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

Ah, sorry to hear that Colin.  It's happened to me before & that was positive in the long run, it got me out of a job I hated & stopped me from having a full on mental breakdown! :lol:

My wife had a similar experience.  She took a redundancy last year and started her own company (something I was trying to get her to do for ages).  She hasn't looked back since and is literally swamped with work.  She even has plans to hire me one day ;D.

Regards,

Colin, sorry to hear you have lost your job but glad you can spend more time on Freightdog products. Hopefully you make a decent living out of this.

Is this the product you mentioned in the EAP thread ?

Looking forward to see you at Hendon, I'm after a few bits.

Upppsss ... I'm sad to hear this !  :o

However You can take that as a chance to expand You line ... I would suggest a Fairey Delta III  :bow: and the P.1121  :wub:before Anigrand will do them !

Cheers and all the best,
Deino

I'd still like to see these two stage Merlins we were promised for the Mosquito!

Good to see you back Wooksta.

P.12 first (still on for end June), then EAP (slipped to August due summer hols), and probably two stage Merlin Mossie by September. The problem with the mossie is that Paul Lucas is a bit of a closet whiffer, and is easily strays into things that did not fly....

I'm hoping to have another whiff kit out for SMW but it has to pay the bills now, so not likely to be a Delta III or P.1121, although I would like one to!

What about a P.1214 ? That would be cool.

What about a DH.116 Super Venom ( ;D ), or a Hawk 200 conversion for the Italeri or Airfix kit? Other "sensible" suggestions would be Royal Navy rocket pods, Martel and Sea Eagle missiles, or even something like a Bristol Belvedere or other early British Helicopter.

P.S. A Delta III (or AW.169, P.1121 etc) would be brilliant, if you can make it work financially. :thumbsup:
