Libertee's Miscellaneous Musings II / Re: things that really p** you off

Wow lol, I really missed the boat on answering your question.  Sorry about that.

I was talking about services inbound to Canada.  Leaving Canada is a horrifying story all its own.  One time when I ordered a package from Japan, I paid for express tracked shipping, estimated at 5 to 7 business days costing around $23 CAD.  When I picked it up from the postal office, the lady who I knew, proposed an experiment.  She asked me what shipping cost and services were on the package to see what it would cost going to Japan.  Once entered in and tallied up it would have cost about $97 CAD going out.  That is my favorite Canada Post poppycock story.  That was also about 4 years ago maybe less and it has only gotten worse.

" ...these sort of things are your area of expertise" - don't know about that but I'll be happy if mine looks anywhere near as good as your two. Interesting when you say "...they go together quite well" my one is a pig of a kit with poor fit between the major hull parts, lots of resin flow marks (some quite thick in parts) and a quite badly warped missile swing arm (looks okay when open but fits poorly when closed even after several attempts to reshape in hot water). About what I've come to expect from Forgeworld or Puppets War (PW such good value I'm willing to overlook the extra work needed to correct) but had higher hopes for Prodos.
Still I've persevered and now it's starting to look okay - lots of sanding still to do. Cockpit is excellent, yes and about the best of the castings.

Aye, beasts aint they!

TBH they are simple so it didn't take much work, 2 - 3 afternoons tops for each one as they go together quite well and are pretty much boring flatness when you look at them, hence the reason I added the few extra interesting bits.

I actually purchased a third and would have been happy to paint it up which is quite strange for me as I absolutely hate painting the same thing more than once, alas I sold it on eBay as I simply don't have the room!

The cockpits are nice aren't they, even have a smaller pilot to represent Corporal Ferro, nice touch

Anyhow, looking forward to seeing what you do with it mate, these sort of things are your area of expertise, I'm still winging it ;)

OH MY GOD!!! ...these are HUGE!! I've always admired your work but having received my Cheyenne today and now having an understanding of the amount of work you've had to put in to make these look as good as they do...astonishing!!

I really like this one... Reminds me of the classic Airfix Forward Command Post that I always wanted as a kid; 

I have that Airfix kit I really must get around to finishing it.
Really impressive stuff as well BulldogUK

Painted up a little more scenery and couldn't resist this after watching one of my favourite war films over the Xmas :)

Not hung over, but very tired.

I hope 2017 is a good year for everyone on the FoD?
