  1. Hi Crisp, I'm following this build as I have also built this kit, but as HMNZS Southland, ex HMS Dido after it was sold to the RNZN. It was pictured in a posting here on BM until Photobucket ransomed my pics. I too joined the Navy, in 1977 and I remember Norfolk visiting Auckland in '78. I did quite a few enjoyable years on Southland and was Ops Room Supervisor when we fired the very last Ikara in the world. We used third party targeting from HMNZS Canterbury against an Austarlian O Boat and the Aussies said according to their telemetry it was the most accurate firi
  2. Hi Oceandog, I was an RP as well, then I must know you! What's your real name?
  3. Thanks a lot for the info guys. I thought it must be different names for the same bit of kit.
  4. Could someone please explain to me the difference between winglets and sharklets? Thanks.
  5. On the plus side for me. The Ascencio decals have arrived nd I've started using them. They seem very good. I might stick with them from now on.
  6. I have still had no answer from them to my original email informing them that they sent me the wrong decals. In light of this changing ISP information do you think I should resend my email?
  7. Sorry, I actually did look at your Yak-42 RFI and was pretty impressed with it. It gave me confidence that rhe decals were giong to be okay, but I just asked Jeff to get his opinion also. A second opinion never hurts, right?
  8. Cheers Jeff, and how have you found using their decals? John
  9. Yes they are certainly ignoring me. I have sent them a second email informing them about the incorrect decals and still no word from them. I think they have just lost a customer!
  10. May I ask, did you buy the Ascencio decals from Russia? It seems they have been posted and are on their way. They even provided a tracking number but it will be interesting to see how long they take to New Zealand.
  11. Thanks to all of you who responded to my query. It's now been over a week and still no response from F-Decals, even after a second email to them.
  12. Wow Rod that is awesome....now I want one. Cheers.
  13. Hi Dave, thanks for the advice on the Ascensio decals......translucent huh? The Air New Zealand scheme I'm after is a white fern and koru on a black fuselage and tail. Could mean trouble? I've still had no response from F-Decals so I might have to go with Ascensio anyway. Cheers, John
  14. Thanks for the response Ian. I may just order the Ascensio decals anyway just to see what they're like and to test Russia to New Zealand shipping time.
