  1. Hi Wab ! Nice to hear news from Overseas ! 1st sentence : as me in France 2nd Sentence I hope so but I am not "over-optimistic"....just because the usual monthly issue are out ! so we wait and see Christian
  2. 1) First sentence : I got August - september issue (with the usual wonderful nice ice blanket ) and sept-october with the other one descripted upside in these exchanges... 2) Second sentence : Yes , I thin,k it's the 1st option because , for me, it's far to be complete because I didn't get April, June and July ..... But, but , I stopped getting angry .... just sad ; it was (sorry : IS) a great magazine And anxious that these issues are in the international orbital capsule in danger of being pulverized by a russian missile
  3. hello Saxonrock ! hello Germany ! So I feel less alone as non british ! (just a joke folks !) The quoted words depaint exactly my own experience in France christian
  4. sorry for double text ... have a nice sunday
  5. The representativeness of such comments is always difficult to assess. But the number of modelers subscribers to SAMI in the world is enormous, even if they express themselves less than here, on Britmodeller, which seems quite logical to me. As one of the rare non-British subscribers on this exchange and registered on other forums, either very well-known and international (like hyperscale), or more specifically French, I can tell you that the problem is known and is spreading strongly. A proof is that it was Hyperscale which advised me to watch this chat. That our remarks will remain without significant effect surprises few (like many here, including me ...), but that anyway the company’s attitude is contemptuous is very regrettable because a forum like this one is not a social network (Facebook or other type) where everything goes all over the place. christian The representativeness of comments is always difficult to assess.

  6. OK that position is understandable and clear Nevertheless I am satisfied to see that you are aware of what is going on
  7. I have understood Bedford's usual usual day's meteo and I apologize In eastern France it's almost the same , modeller friend ! let's go to our work bench ! for : trecker_ed: About IPMS-UK ( and Scale model World) : although I think it's an institution in charge of good value repute of our common hobby , whatever their relays, I said: "I thread...." I didn't say : "I will do ....." To be honest , I am resign to loose money... But that final report is bad for everyone in this case
  8. I sent a mail one week ago with threat of a registered letter requesting refund (with a copy to the President of UPMS - UK) if I do not receive my missing magazines before November 1st No response except an acknowledgment of receipt.... Just received this morning August - September .... !! It looks like a game of cat and mouse... If I read what KLN writes , not much hope to get June & July ... Otherwise I read A. Evans's editorial : not a slightest trace about any difficulties or explanation about the switch to a bimonthly edition regrouping Christian
  9. Tony watched Telford"s meeting : "MA seem to be conspicuous by their absence!"...... So yes Martin, definitely it smells a lot about liquidation ....
  10. OK lasermonkey I can understand.... but reading along these 7 full forum pages I recently discovered, I feel trust and patience keep falling down fast .... I just watched the internet site and I am amazed to see the "chronic" ( now old) message : https://www.modelaircraftmag.com/latest-news/ very easy to put everything on the coronavirus .... Why not the bad summer we had ? Christian
  11. I receive the same type of answers from "Sophie", without ever anything concrete It's almost "copied - pasted" for all of us ... Confidence is severely impaired .... I wonder if they watch all our exchanges... Britmodeller is known all over UK as a first class exchange forum and I guess they read our anger (and sadness) .... Everybody can mind THIS is the place to chat about an english magazine.... christian
  12. Hi Paul Yes you're right It's SAMI Scale Aircraft Modeller International From MA Publications I am astonished by all these close problems related. What can we do....?? Christian Ps : imagine I wrote my problem on a french 1/72 forum (where I exist as well) I just guessed if Uk or France customs are the origine....no agressivity And I got a chocked response of a modeller who works as a customs employee !! He told everything works all right ....
  13. Hi all I hesitated to bring on forums my own problem but, reading these exchanges I see I am far to be alone I have SAM Mag subscription for many years and find it great. But nowadays there’s a problem that has lasted for almost a year begins to seriously "swell" me! Indeed since September 2020, I never receive regularly the magazine (except oddly that of May 2021). However it is edited (sometimes with delay OK) regularly, you’ll see it on the site. At the beginning of the year, I could contact the editorial staff and the chief editor (responsible for participating in the management due to a temporary suspension of his main activity due to the covid) was my contact with efficacy. He told me that magazines are leaving but…. are not arriving; when he sent me 1 or 2 with a customs declaration, it generally went through and without taxation .... (often in my life I have had other subscriptions outside of Europe and I have never paid customs) By now didn't get neither April (and sold out!) nor June to October issues, so 6 magazines failing ! I am , not complaining about any supplier ( I know it’s not the object of forums) ; I just want to understand and get answers to my questions about pre paid and not honored stuffs Good modelling…. anyway Christian
  14. gone too fast.... hello Giampiero I am going on with my Bu-131 now on the delicate spaying stage of white winter overhall ... 2 things: 1) question : your (very nice) Bücker is which scale , 72 or 48 ? 2) remark : you're right in 'Luftwaffe im Focus 2006-N°10. you can find 3 interesting Photos of that plane and this is from afar the best doc on that subject The 3 different photos are > 1st :North Russia - April 1942 ( and NOT , mistake of the author, 1941 because that date is before Russia's invasion) with both 2/ JG-54 and JG-54 Ist Gruppe emblems on the plane > 2nd: in repainting aspect in a closed hangar , WITHOUT (and before re-application see 3rd) JG-54 Ist Gruppe emblem > 3rd: in winter 42-43 , with skis , close to a FW-190 ( so clearly later ) WITH (again) 2/ JG-54 and JG-54 Ist Gruppe emblems As reading Axel Urbanke's very intersting text , you can understand that : NO ! on the rudder , the victories signs have nothing to do with the as Hans Philipp but are only an indication of JG-54's cumulative victories from Russia's invasion till April (if correct) 1942 ! Good modelling christian
  15. hello Giampiero I am going on with my Bu-131 2 thiongs :1) question your (very nice) is which sc
  16. Buongiorno Giampiero I am so stupid ! I own all LIF (and even worked with Axel Uhrbanke on "Schlangen - Stukas" - see N° 7 you'll find my name , Christian Boehm as contributor) Actually I was troubled about it because I found pictures without the JG 54 Nürnburger Stadtwappen as well I just didn't look my LIF back issues ; I did and everything is clear and explained On Hyperscale , a helping colleague sent me these ones again, see: https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/hyperscale/viewtopic.php?p=2808286#p2808286 Congratulations for your Bü ; very nice ! If my one is half so nice I would be happy As you are from Italy , see my CR-42 ( Rhodos) It is the Italaerei on but with Pavala wings (I found the structures too marked on the Italaerei) Have a nice sunday thanks christian
  17. Hello folks Does somebody own this book ? In this one there must be a picture of the BÜ 131 flown by Hans Philipp (KG-54 in Russia 1942) There are different interpretations of the painting Thanks a lot ?! christian
  18. Thanks Graham fort these precisions That brings me back at last spring as I built my second 1/72 Airfix Blenheim (Mk IV) I sent on August 25th 2020 a picture with 14th squadron markings but since that time I put it on a diorama with the name "Breakfast in the desert" It shows a meeting beetween a raid-returning LRDG team with desert Air Force crews Ok, ok, I know... This is quite a not very credible scene because LRDG 's missions were secret but I could not resist as, although I am specially an airplane builder, I waited a long time to find an occasion to built the Matchbox set and this rare resin mobile canteen on a dio. Specially note the shadowish extended dining room, "eggs & bacon" plates and the desert toilets behind the canteen ; I had pleasure to place many other funny details but I don't want to bore christian
  19. I agree Black Knight and, again, a case were there are 99 % chances that nobody would ever tell you your model is wrong !!
  20. oups ... ......the restaurers painted the nose art on both sides. .....
  21. Thanks Houston I know the restaured Fokker D.XXI at Sösterberg and yes , the restaurers p You can even have a walk around at : http://aircraftwalkaround.hobbyvista.com/fokkerxxi/fokkerxxi.htm It bears the "221" and 221 "is known" has having the nose art , but I'd like to find a picture of 1940 as a proof For the "214" the photo upside is a proof.... As well, as I know, no any right fuselage side war picture exists , as a proof Otherwise , and although I have much respect and even admiration for the museum managers and workers, the beige yellowish color of both Sösterberg's D.XXI and G.1 planes is a big subject of discussion Christian
  22. Hello alt 92 Thanks But I have proofs about both signs were applied (at least on some aircrafts , including the "214") ; many reports and modelling articles show the "221" bearing the same , but I found no proof ; see: 1) 2 painting scenes which are, as well , on your 1st link discussion but not together: this page (112) is issued from the excellent french book Fokker D21 Ed Lela Press by Peter de Jong ( I am sure you have it). It's in french but all picture comments are in english as well 2 ) the second one is not common (I found it nowhere else ) see : the plane 214 WITH both signs: That is obvious , not ? about the second link and the "yellowish" tone of the light cam color , much ink poured ; and the Sösterberg restaured planes carry this type of color but I based myself on many analyses of dutch files and IPMS Sweden color studies and samples (with FS or close FS codes) and I painted it with Hataka colors ( theses ones are often considered as believable) As some modellers say, it looks like a very light RLM02 What is certain is that on BW photos , it looks very, very pale , almost white have a good WE christian
  23. Hello Disappointed by the news about the Fokker G1 ( see : I stopped it; as I was on painting stage I started to paint the previous kit built, a MPM 72 Fokker D.XXI from 1st java in 1940 Can somebody tell me if the “three mices & pointed clog” nose art (which was painted on some planes) was applied on both fuselage sides? Thanks Christian
  24. OK good Nice done kit but I didn't dare to tell you the light color is false ( not ochre but a creamish grey green...) Sösterberg Museum's Fokker G1A and Fokker D21 are false as well on this point I learn it from several dutch written files Hataka did it well
  25. is the finished very nice model on the pictures upside yours ?
