Freightdog at Coventry this weekend 22nd June 2014
« on: June 16, 2014, 01:09:04 pm »
Hi chaps,

I will be at Coventry at the weekend for one of my favourite shows! Resin stocks are a bit low, and I probably won't have everything with me, but if anyone has any specific needs drop me a pm and I will try and bring it along or have it cast up in time.

Nothing much new at the moment, except some Tornado bits in 1/48 (ex-MA Raptor and Litening III pods), and may have some new wheels for the Airfix Dakota (replacing flat ones in the kit). However, my colleague Dave of Combat Decals will be along side and he SHOULD have his W.2 Hercules conversion set for the Italeri C-130. It includes a superb decal sheet by Airdecal, only hold up is instructions as Dave is still writing them!

Look forward to seeing you there.

Colin

Well if Dave has the Herk W 2 set with him, It will be a safe bet that I will most definitely be opening my wallet ;D
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

I've been badgering him to finish the instructions for ages, the decals turned up last week and I think that has been given him a push to get them ready.

Considering the nature of most of my builds the instructions may not be so urgently required LOL.

If he has a gash weather radar pod for the W2 Im willing to re-home it for a negotiated price ;D
The AEW herk I did last year could use one to really complete the build properly.

How did I manage to miss the fact that it's the Coventry Show this weekend?  :banghead:

I see on the Museum web site that it's the Sunday, and I'm en route to Co Durham then to do some work on the APT, but may be able to drop in en route.

That Herk conversion sounds veeeeery interesting.  ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)
