Freightdog Models new website, its alive!!!
« on: January 20, 2021, 01:48:28 am »
Good morning gents.

My new website is finally ready and up and running now. Please check out the news blog page that has details of 1st quarter releases in my Freightdog, Pegasus and Rotor-Craft ranges. I'm also hoping to restock quite a few resin sets hopefully next week, although my caster can't get resin, damn you Brexit!! :o

Thanks,

Colin

Looks nice.  :thumbsup:

Did you migrate all your customers details across as I just tried logging in and it didn't recognise my email address   :-\

Gondor

No sorry I didn't, very few customers opened an account on the old website (most used the PayPal shopping cart option). Hope you don't mind entering a new one.

If you want to place an order, I've created a coupon code TGRCT9UC giving 10% discount to What-If SIG members, valid till 31Jan. This excludes Combat Kits items.

The website is looking good.  :thumbsup:

I would have a chat with your website designer about the Cookie pop-up. It keeps appearing on every page I go to instead of treating the website as one cookie.

Looking forward to getting some decent tanks for the new tool Airfix Brick. My WE177 one stalled.

Looks good, except the main image is shifting over to the right on my smart phone.

You mention you've got a thing going with Grand Models, will you be sticking their TF-102 conversion?  I've a friend who's been after one.
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

One other thing, I can't find the search function.

Two sets will do nicely.

Thanks for the feedback Mossie, I've asked the web magicians to sort out the search function.

Your not missing much from the main image, its just a diecast Mustang model on a map, I'm changing it soon.

No plans to stock the Grand range, but Christos does a very good mail order service from Greece, shame about the hit & miss VAT lottery though.

Thanks, Colin

I have the Grand TF-102 set which is far superior to the Maintrack conversion set. Grand also do a complimentry decal set if your going real world . The set is only designed for the Meng kit, either Case X or Case XX, look at my blog for more info and pics of it.

But that doesn't mean it won't fit the Hasegawa kit.
