  1. Hi, Mike!!! Same wishes for you and your wife from the cold island !!!! Unfortunately, Teide Hobby closed it's Doors and is no longer in the business...Juan is dar away, deployed at Lebanon, and due to the lockdown , the gang doesn't meet as frequently as we'd like to do... Anyway, some new members hace joined our club, such as our German friend Andy Klein, the Guy behind Airdoc Publications, Wingman Models and Double Ugly. On the other Hand, another hobby shop is working hard here in La Laguna, keeping us amused with plenty of Models and supplies. Regarding the Welsh Mo
  2. Dear Sir. My apologies for such an upsetting situation. I've been trying to Contact my friend Juan, but he's deployed at Lebanon right now, and comunication is somehow difficult. Nevertheless, I've ordered a PayPal refund. Last time I talked with him, he assured all those shipments were already sent back then. Maybe the canadian postal services strikes those days had some responsability. According to his shipments records, 12 packets were sent to Canadá in early 2019. We cannot Accept any responsability for a damaged or Lost packet once shipped. Anyway, I prefer to loose some money than
  3. The main "problem" with this kit (originally Hobbycraft), much older then the Academy boxing, is the fact that it represents a canadian CT33 Silver Star, with the proper nose for a canadian built T33.
  4. Hi all......to my surprise, the postman brought a wrong model. I think someone out there missed the addressee, and sent me a model I've never ordered or traded. It's a Welsh Models vacuformed Boeing 747. Please, get back in touch with me if you think you mismatched the shipping data. There must be someone out there waiting for a kit that will never arrive...!!!! Best regards.
  5. Excellent info....thank you very much. I'll use British colours then. BEST regards
  6. Thanks a lot. Will check It carefully...!!
  7. Morning all...!!! Been given an ICM Spitfire Mk.IXc with soviet markings, but came without the colour guide. We're them repainted with russian colours, ir left in the original British ones? TIA and greetings from sunny Tenerife...

    The Lysander?? I'm afraid you're talking about my brother Rodrigo's mad project......Well, I still wonder how in hell he decided to go that far superdetailing the "last taxi"...

    Hi all.........!!!!

    Fortunately, the Covid restrictions are not so hard here in the Canaries, we've got a very low contagion ratio and very few deaths directly rlated with the "bug", as we call it here. We're receiving the first tourists from the UK and Germany since last march, when everything collapsed. We meet every weekend at our club workshop, and still enjoy single malt tastings on saturday evening.....of course we keep the adviced health precautions, wearing face masks and using sanitary gel. On the other hand, a local hobby shop (actually a fine arts supplier) decided to offer a large rang

    Hi all.........!!!!

    greetings from Tenerife.........It's been a long time away from the boards, and this special and terrible situation we suffer world wide is making things even more difficult for all of us. Just wanted to say hallo and to all of you. I wish everything's allright there, and all of you and your relatives are fine. You can bet I miss a lot the nice people I've met here...... I'm still modelling, but at a very slow pace, due to job commintments. The economical situation made me loose my job at the car dealer, and had to rearrange my professional life. Please, stay safe and take care
  12. Thanks for your kind words, Friends..... The Alclad was sprayed at a very low psi, over a glossy black enamel base. On the other hand, the Humbrol Trainer Yellow was sprayed in three thin coats over a light grey enamel primer. According to the instructions sheet, those markings are for an 11th RFS, RAF, during late 38. It's noteworthy the use of the short tail, wich comes as a resin optional part. Stever: thanks to our "early" lockdown and self isolation, we can be happy for the low contagion ratio here in the isles, as well as the fatalities. The three firts infected on
