thanks for the kind comments...and now for the green and I have three shades in my modelling arsenal that I might be able to use instead of cracking open the wallet to spring from some authentic dark green...which one do you think might be the go? I'll try to spray  some of each onto a piece of scrap plastic to give you some idea of their respective shades

More to the point, I think anyone under 30 would be amazed at the idea that petrol ever came with free gifts...

It strikes me that although we are all in the same situation Evil-Bay has responded to us in a variety of different ways.  This does not give me confidence in the robustness of their processes.

Perhaps that may have to do with which eBay company each of us is dealing with. I buy through where I suspect you buy through eBay.Au each a different company even though they are to most intents and purposes the same. It could also be due to laws within each country being different and eave version of eBay having to deal accordingly, but that part is just a pure guess.


It is a very good guess.  AIUI Australian consumer law is more robust than UK consumer law providing more protection to the consumer.   EvilBay is required to act according to the laws in which country the sale is made.  Downunder, we are treated very differently to the UK/US/Europeans.
One for Kit, methinks...

New in at the Big H. Not sure if these are new or just re-stocks - interesting though.

Nice job there.  :thumbsup:

Different looking beastie, isn't it?
Well it looks like I don't have to move out for a couple of years. The decorators are in and refurbishing the kitchen. The hall has been painted and they will be working on the bedrooms soon.
Everything is boxed up, I've got enough spares to finish off the current builds although you might find the odd one recycled or removed from my current list. Well that's what happened to the Neptune flying boom tanker, damaged beyond repair.
I can't seem to find the Anigrand Martin SeaMaster either.
I'm going to start on my 1/24 (1/25) car builds before anything else gets broken or nicked. I came across the 1/24 or 1/25 resin Batmobile. It looks a bit crude in the moulding, with some puty/filler it could be transformed into a convertible. There are parts missing.

Hi Captain,
I sent you a few pictures on your facebook page for your pleasure. I hope that you had a great time.
I sometimes cheat when it comes to tail-sitters. I use a clear tube of plastic hidden by the main landing gear. Either glued to the lower fuselage or drilled so the tube can be removed during transit.
I usually avoid building straight from the box and rearrange the landing gear, so there's a tail wheel instead of a nose wheel.
