I've just checked and even a 600g parcel is going to cost 17+ to get to the States ($22+). I just don't think that's going to be economical.
Yeah, shipping costs have gotten outrageous, on both sides of the pond.

Matt, you're killing me man! :banghead:
Thats if my 'dearly beloved' doesn't kill me beforehand!  :wacko: 

Quite taken by the ungainly straight wing beer keg, and is that a Banshee?  :rolleyes:

I'm literally broke till the end of the month, but i'll PM you later!  :wacko:

It is a Banshee, I found another one (sorry to mess you about with that). By the end of the month I should have everything I have "found" in the garage listed up. Most of it has been in storage for 3 years and moved about 300+ miles in the last decade! I could have some 200 models to go (that's an estimate at this stage).

As major found out I vacillate on whether I want some things to go or not! For example, when I unearthed my Pe-8 yesterday, my first thought was: Hell no! That's staying! The 787 was on ebay in 5 minutes.

I think what I'll do in the week is make a master list of what's going and put it on page one, then do piccies on demand or Flickr may start throwing utensils at me. Several things are on ebay but the pace of departures is a little insipid for my tastes.

Major, I'll do you a special promotion at the end of the month since you are a repeat customer!  :wacko:


ETA: Just had a quick look at my list of models. 187 to go!

I'd be interested in the big list, meanwhile could you send a link to the ebay listings?

Ooooo! Matt, so good of you!  :angel: ;D

Pencil me in for the Banshee, and the FJ-1 Fury.  :wacko:
No doubt i'll be inspired, and end up adding to them!  :banghead:

Cheers... Ray  :thumbsup:

I'm interest in the Hawker Siddeley Dominie leftovers and 1/72 Laird Solution. And considering the fiat Br20 . Do you have pictures of the contents of these?

Cheers

2 of those I know the location of but I haven't seen the Laird Solution in years so I would have to have a look.

Ray, the Banshee and the Fury are both currently listed over on ebay but neither currently have watchers and I will not relist them should they not sell this time around.

I could be very tempted if an Airfix Vulcan pops out of any of those boxes.

"An inaccurate parcel of dog turds!"

I do have (the old) one but it is a bit of a wreck as I built it when I was young, dumb and didn't know what PSR was. The landing gear is probably one wheel in the grave too. I did it as a 16Sqn Saints display bird in all-over black. I don't know if I want to part with it yet but if I do, you have 1st dibs if that means anything?

Academy 1/144. If you were to need spares I have several lobotomised fuselages and spare wings etc. from cancelled projects.

Cheers Matt, I  would have been interested in it if it was 1/72nd scale, as it  could have been  mixed with some Shackleton  bits.
