    Postage rates

    Thanks Mick, just ordered from ' Air-Craft.net ' identical order which would've cost £9.50 P+P from my original online order which inspired this post, A similar order from Hannants was £6.00 but these guys, £3.49!! Royal Mail 48hr dunno about all the stuff mentioned above, but good postal rates are available with good advice from helpful forum members again, Thanks Mick4350 Note, Jeff Bezos was unharmed in the duration of this post! Ha!

    Thank you, eModels was the place I found with the high postal rates, but they do stock what I need, so instead of going through the checkout process of all the other stores I thought I'd ask here, it's what forums are about right? and here we are! Ha!

    Yeah, but, I got my postage reduced from nearly a tenner to six quid, which was the point of my original question. So I'm happy!! Yaayy!! The whole acrylic thing in the post wasn't part of my original question, 'interesting' though it is, it's not something that concerns me but seems to be the focus of this thread However, a list of suggestions for online suppliers who 'aren't' Amazon who can supply tricky to source paint (notwithstanding the laws regarding it's delivery!) might be a good idea for those who disapprove of Amazons retail practices

    Not sure acrylics are flammable but I take your point Just ordered two Tamiya acrylic paint aerosols, P+P was £6 Thanks for everyones help?!?!
  7. Hey guys, I posted a message earlier complaining about postage rates, it seems to have been hijacked by those who harshly criticise Amazon (although I bet they all use it!) and regulations regarding mailing paint through the postal system??? Can anyone recommend a retailer in the UK that carries 'Mr Color' and doesn't charge a tenner for sending a few tiny pots of paint through the mail??

    I was kinda hoping suggestions for online model stores but seem to got into Amazon bashing and the laws regarding sending paint through the post? Maybe I shouldn't have titled it 'Postage rates'!!

    So, I'm undergoing a bit of a modelling renaissance recently. I have been out of the game for a few years with my output being maybe one kit a year? But I've had my interest reawakened after seeing some stuff on YouTube about JASDF, this led to a further investigation and in my usual flurry of impulse kit purchases! (impulse? there's a pun in there somewhere?) Half of the fun for me is the research and gathering of information and supplies to build the kit I'm currently obsessing over! Japanese subjects Japanese kits so in a departure from my mostly 'nostalgic' use of Humbrol enamels I consid
  10. What are those buildings and vehicles marked up in red and white checkerboard markings? I've seen aircraft with them too, AW Argosy calibration aircraft for example and recently JASDF 'check' aircraft such as the U-125 Is there some international convention on these markings? (not including RAF 56sqn who wear these markings as part of their sqn colours)
  11. Typical BBC fake news, turn a little issue into a crisis with epic proportions, and bash the govt while they are at it! They go on about Challenger II not being upgraded since 1998, claiming everyone else has re equipped with more modern hardware, so Joe Public has the immediate reaction of 'oh my, how terrible' (muted for forum use), Thing is, Challenger 2 doesn't need updating, it's brilliant as it is! It performs it's task well even now, how many have been lost in combat compared to other MBT's? British tank philosophy stands up well in theatre (literally!) 'Do

    Hasegawa pricing

    And now it makes more sense! Thanks!
  13. As a confirmed weeaboo otaku I embrace Japanese culture in all its forms, low crime rates respectfull population with an intuitive sense of civic pride. . . . and some of the best modelling kits and equipment manufacturers on earth, who else would cute anime girls on their box artwork? (apart from Airfix Stratos4 TSR2 MS!!) good luck to them I say

    Hasegawa pricing

    Okay, Gotcha, but Hasegawa reboxed kits from other kit makers? No?

    Hasegawa pricing

    Didn't Hasegawa rebox kits from other manufacturers, the F6 Lightning was a Frog mold, so I'm told? You can't really blame Hasegawa for making basic kits that are now fifty years old! Maybe the new UK/Japan Brexit deal will make a concession on extreme pricing?? well, maybe not, but wouldn't that be cooool!
