Michael Hickey Not sure, I'll have a look, thanks Glen. Where do you buy that brand from?

Glenn _ I brought a couple from Luckymodel in Hong Kong but i'm sure you could find them elsewhere! :) They do a few ADF sheets eg, LAV-25 and Abrams.
05. October at 23:59:52
10538
Michael Hickey @Glenn, I've got a sheet for my Abram and I looked at Lucky Models but their out of stock, and when I went to the Echelon site to see if they had it, it showed they were out of print so I don't think Lucky Models will be getting any in the future.
06. October at 01:52:21
10538
Michael Hickey There's a website based in Canada that sells hard to find decals but I can't remember what it is called, if somebody could refresh my memory that would be great.

Don't you hate it when aresholes buy your model on eBay and then won't have any contact with, airtractor25todd is this person. Even though I checked his feedback before accepting his offer which is 100% this moron hasn't contacted me or paid. He's completely stuffed me around, so if you have contact with this phuckwit be aware. (n) (n) (n)

Choppa Nutta Cheers for the link Mike and I of course wish you luck but I can imagine someone will want it :)
Considering the effort you have put in plus the cost of kit and upgrades etc. that is good value for money !
I have put it on my watch list just to see how it goes for you :)

Much to consider here, I think I need to think about it some more :)

Christian Ristits Thank you guys, appreciate your feedback very much! Also your Plane is worth every cent, Michael!
I know that the prices are not comparable with the value of the working hours, but I have less space, and for me the building is the fun. Other people have fun with collecting them, and I am able to finance my hobby with itself (no discussion with my wife when buying new kits). And I really have nice contact with the buyers, they are all model airplane enthusiasts, one also placed an order for a special project ;)
