Is Colin in hiding??

Sent two messages to Colin regarding some items I would like to purchase if he had them, nothing back from him and the first one was over a week ago.

I know he's been sorting his website out. Don't know if that impacts on his email though

I have looked at his profile page on here and it says he has been on line, after I had sent the P.M's, so not sure what is going on there.

Hi Chris,

Not hiding! Apologies, I normally get an email to say I have a private message but didn't this time. I think I have a few of these in stock, I'll double check and let you know how much (not as much as HPM charge, they are not exactly top sellers!;

Thanks,

Colin

I have also noticed the lack of an e-mail telling you that you have a PM.

Cheers Colin,
I thought perhaps you were busy making the conversion set for the 1/72nd scale F-16 XL hint hint  ;)
No probs, I will have a few of these, and also some buccaneer IFR probes if possible please.
Cheers

No sorry Chris but I am back in the land of whiffs with some nice stuff for Telford or soon after, but not an F-16XL!

I was only joking Colin, the bits I need for my mirages are what I want, but looking forward to seeing what you bring out for Telford.

No problem Chris. I have six of the Mirage probes in stock,  1 each and add 1.50 postage if that is OK? I can get Buccaneer ones cast up but I'm not sure how soon that would be (probably for Telford).  Its actually not the image I linked, that includes a new nose, these are just the probes (same type as fitted to a Mirage F.1).

I will have the lot please Colin, I don't mind waiting for the Buccaneer ones,or if you have any others that would suit mirage III/50's Kfirs and Mirage 2000's.Not sure whether I will make Telford to be honest, as I am waiting to go in to hospital If you can give me a paypal address, I will send you the cash for the probes ok.
Cheers
Chris.

Yup, I haven't had a informative e-mail for ages so just check the "header" when I log on.

but looking forward to seeing what you bring out for Telford.

 

Me as well  :thumbsup:

Bare in mind that colin has had to go back to the day job..
He is also on quite a brutal shift pattern to boot. Freight dog has had to a back seat for a bit.
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.
