    Postage rates

    A bit of a rant, but I have just packed and labeled a kit to go Royal Mail special delivery. I tend to go overboard on packing it well in a strong box with plenty of padding. Total weight 2.3kg. If it was under 2kg, cost is £11, if it is over 2kg cost is £26.60. Really gutted at such a jump, is crazy to have such a massive step up, so 300g has cost me an additonal £15.60.
  2. Bumping this old thread because I spotted it in radio times tv listings on sky documentaries channel at 9pm tonight with repeats on Sunday at 7pm and Monday at 9pm. Can't reccomend this movie enough, even if you are not particularly interested in space. https://www.radiotimes.com/film/gvmbwd/apollo-11/ (There seems to be some distinction between "NOW TV Sky Documentaries" and "Sky Documentaries", so unless you are watching on Now TV you may only be able to watch it on Saturday or Sunday)
  3. thats a really good score I think, karma is balancing that one out with me Today have had a whole string of bad luck Today
  4. I was in similar situation recently, and found it very difficult to buy an international courier label with destination being UK. It's probably easier and much cheaper to ask your buyer to buy the label and offer to send them money via paypal, just ask them to make sure it's tracked. In your case I would argue with eBay that no mention of the language for the instructions would assume that they are in the local language, and should be up to the buyer to check that.
  5. I don't know if there's any subliminal message in the movie/documentary, but since I viewed it in imax theatre, I have an additional 12 Saturn V kits added to the stash, 4 of which are the Dragon 1:72 monsters. I am planning on buying the 4k bluray to release to keep as a physical copy

    Steam Model Builder

    Hi I stumbled across this Yesterday, and thought it was quite funny. https://store.steampowered.com/app/1164250/Model_Builder/ Some interesting details if you click on the "Official Discord Server" article
  7. Thanks for the reply, the importer is "The Hobby Company" they don't have any spare parts. I've had to order a replacement from another retailer. Will have to send this one back for refund, it's good I discoverred the fault quickly after it arrived. Have got loads of kits I have not fully checked, some even un-wrapped
  8. Hi Does anyone know how to get replacement parts for a new Dragon kit, just received one of my top wish list kits, and has cracked clear sprue Thanks, Paul
  9. Hi Yes, a typo on my behalf, sorry; I have seen references to 65mm and 70mm.
  10. I can't find a topic for this release, apologies if I have double posted; I feel it's worth another mention. This is the film released back in July with all the other 50th Anniversary releases. This film was created by digitising a set of 64mm panavision reels of fillm which had never been seen before, it is going to be a future classic. It quietly appeared on Amazon Prime, is available on Bluray in 4k. It's not free, but worth watching. I saw it first in Imax cinema, and it was stunning; also watched it at home which was a different experience, but still very good to see. There are 64mm reels
  11. Thanks for your reply, I have reported it to eBay, but have got no assistance there. I don't really want to post item numbers here as it would identify the seller, which I feel is wrong on a public forum in this discussion. All you would see, is a listing for 3 kits which sold, and was re-listed for an identical listing for 3 kits a little later which sold
  12. Warning! sorry my post is going to be a bid gloomy, if you just want happy threads, please move to the next thread. Had a strange eBay experience. Found a couple of really good listings with a photo of 3 kits in each. I paid for one, and put in an offer for the other one. The one I put an offer in for sold at full price, so my offer was declined, no problem Got a message a bit later, saying there was an error in the listing and price was for one kit only, so he would have to cancel my order. Really gutted at that but understandable situation.
  13. I bought the most recent release of the AN 225 in the new decal scheme (wish I hadn't bought the old one now) Last month have bought a model kit I have been looking out for years for, the Revell Apollo Lunar Spacecraft, that's the kit in 1:48 with the LM CSM LM Adapter and Escape Tower. I think I have paid a bit over the odds for it, but happy to have one, at a price I would not be deterred from building. Need to tame my buying for 2020, last year has been a big year for additions to my stash, some have been great, but there are a fair chunk of purchases I am not so kee
  14. Not a fan of Dr Who in general, but was looking forward to start of this new season. I stopped about half way through first episode, the actor's just didn't seem to gel together, and didn't really feel the female Dr Who actor was any good, it is like she is trying to tell a joke way too fast with no emotion to get to the punchline as quickly as possible. Shame, I will probably catch up earlier series on iPlayer, have plenty I have not seen. I received the Airfix Dr Who in Manhatten kit Today, maybe best place to start. I didn't finish watching that episode either, but enjoyed what
  15. Looks like a scam, when I have had similar experiences (six), you need to wait until the end of the estimated delivery window before raising a claim. Really annoying, and I have a chaotic life, so I am sure I have missed some of mine. That's what they gamble on. I had an odd situation once, when the seller sent a very low value item as a "gift" along with a note that model kit is out of stock but soon on its way. Problem is eBay take it verbatim that gift which had full tracking is proof of delivery. Was a worrying time trying to get through to eBay that item tracked co
