Munitions Train

Posted by Beano Boy on 20 Nov 2016, 23:15

You might recall that I made mention of e-mailing AIRFIX?

WEll I recieved an e-mail from AIRFIX ,
Which clearly stated because I`d sent to many e-mails in the course of 10 minutes,
that they had black listed my e-mail address ___making it not possible for me to send an e-mail.
This they informed me was taken to avoid abuse.
It was caused by their e-mailing system not through any fault of mine.
Yes I realize that it was a machine that sent that e-mail.
So the eccentric Cowboy, was correct it went into the SPAM FILTER BOX! :cowboy: " Yip! As sure as recalling how I shot off my right toe while reaching for my new gun, I said that would happen BB."

:coffee: " You sure did Pard!"

After 24 hours that ban was lifted and so I requested the three parts needed for me to finish my last Panzer VI Mk II.

This could be a cleaver ploy on their part.
Let a Machine handle it this way.
If people with complaints give up sending request e-mails to AIRFIX,
AIRFIX, would save time and more to the point money. BB

BITS & PIECES

It was just turning 10 PM,and another freezing night,had descended upon Fiddle Wood. I had cut the first parts that make up the hulls off earlier,so I had a nice head start as I began gluing up the first one.

Image

I had decided to work and complete all six at the same time.

Image

They were all completed a little before 2 AM.

Image

I have some track to make from Green Stuff to add frontal protection on all these later. BB

My parts needed from AIRFIX,arrived today in a blister pack. It is an automated computer system so no real customer service as such.After sending me three E-mails the machine then informs those at the end of the line,the parts that are needed.

The miss-run main part on the right.

Now I can glue up my last Panzer IV____________________ as well as the Trucks. BB

I think they are great. Unfortunately they has been sold out at the crisis. So I have to wait a little before I can add them to my Desert War Collection.

I saw Jans,`as in the Link above', painted up and decided to add two boxes
These are for the Allied Train.

I am so slow at learning PC skills, after all these years on the Forum
I have only just found out how to put a Link to another topic. ;-) BB

My package arrived with damage to the cardboard box both halftrack kits were packed up in. I always photograph damaged packages in order to supply proof by E Mail.
This is good advice to pass on.
As you can see one box got wacked good and proper,but all sprues were A OK inside. :-D
I bought these two on Model Hobbies, and saved £10.00,by not trading on E Bay!

Image

These six halftracks will suit my needs just right. BB
