Michael Hickey Tail section glued together. One thing I have to fix with the wing is where I cut out the wing tip light according to the kit, it's actually wrong. The light on the tip of the wing is actually on the leading edge. :(

Michael Hickey You'll need to remove the Revell logo and other info on the underside of the fuselage near the last weapons bay. ;)

Jan Hazes Nice work so far!

Michael Hickey Thanks Jan, just scratchbuilding the weapons bay doors out of sheey Evergreen so I can have a better closed fit.
28. August at 08:01:56

Jan Hazes I'll be doing closed as well once I get started. Are the gaps that bad? Can't really remember much of the fitting issues apart from a few seams. Does your version still come with the rubber tires? In my kit they are replaced with black plastic halves.

Clifford Keesler Mine also has the black plastic halves. Does anyone know where I can find 1/48 JDAM's all I can find are Paveway LGB's.

Anybody wanting to order from Barracuda Studios don't bother there back logged with a heap of orders and won't be able to get to your order for weeks (like mine) but they won't tell you about that, they'll still take your money when you place your order. And apparently they don't send out confirmation emails saying they've taken your order, they just leave you hanging. Very unprofessional.

John Van Kooten Ouch, that's no good...

Even though I don't order there (and never will), thanks for the heads up! It's always great to see / read we have each other's back, especially in cases like these, where you are dealing with a known shop of which you think you can trust them without reservation.
24. August at 07:58:38
10538
Michael Hickey Yeah, I tried ordering here in Australia first but couldn't find what I wanted so went to the source.

Michael Hickey Hey Guys and Gals, GREAT NEWS. I JUST RECEIVED AN EMAIL FROM ROY SUTHERLAND OWNER & CEO OF BARRACUDA STUDIOS AND HE HAS EXPLAINED TO ME THE MISS COMMUNICATION WE HAD WITH EACH OTHER AND ALL IS WELL. HE JUST DIDN'T EXPECT TO HAVE THE NUMBER OF ORDERS FOR THE B-1B PRODUCT THAT HE RECEIVED, AND WILL BE GETTING MY ORDER OUT IN THE NEXT DAY OR SO. :D :D :D (y) (y) (y)
25. August at 01:34:46
15317
John Van Kooten That is great news indeed (y) :)

And of course it is good to hear (read) that the shop owner has admitted to the problem AND has solved it. So my hat off to a shop owner that obviously cares! (y)

Thanks for the update, Michael (y)

Steve Wilson ...
When one becomes unexpectedly suddenly inundated with a glut of orders like this, it can catch you unawares and... HICKEY UPS... (sorry Michael :D) like this can happen. It's how the seller deals with the problem that decides his fate.
And in this case John V.K. is absolutely right, this seller " obviously cares " !!!

Bart Goesaert good this worked out, there are other sellers...

don't bother trying to buy here... at least not without paypall: modelarstwoalexander.auctivacommerce.com/default.aspx

Communication is good till you have paid, then not one reply, nothing, seems vanished from the world...

Is there a way to give a rating to modelsites and vendors to flag them as troublesome or as good?
25. August at 10:11:59

Michael Hickey I don't think there is Bart, but that sounds like a good idea.

Hanno Kleinecke The same warning should be announced for Coastal Kits coastalkits.co.uk/newstore/ .
Ordered and paid - luckily by Paypal - no reaction whatsoever, not even on repeated demand.
