Thanks a lot Rui. After a long time away from the bench I have now a dedicated area for modelling and I am back in the bench. No pictures posted yet. Dioramas will be great, but nothing planned for now

That's great news. You need to Stay at the bench now, to compensate. 😄

Crystal clear canopy. The varying metallic hues around the engine exhausts are great to see.
Well done, it looks 32nd or larger.
29. September, 14:16
thanks a lot Major Flannel for your kind comment.
Probably I dipped the canopy in Future, but I do not see anything in my comments of that time.... and after 5 years, i honestly can not remember!

Very nice! Can I ask the fuel tank color manufacturer and code?
11. February 2020, 12:40
Hi Atesz. Sorry I did not see your comment before. I still have that can of paint (most likely dry) it is humbrol number 20. I believe that today's reference is the same 020 Crimson, Humbrol Gloss, Enamel, 14ml
2. September, 21:05

Beautiful work Spanjaard 👍
2. September, 21:32
thanks Rui. this one actually is in need of restoration... so I may change it a bit, one day.
2. September, 22:09
Rui S
Well, if it's for better, you can always Change 😉
3. September, 01:00

looking for the instructions of the B-24 little gramper from Hasegawa (and i need this specific one, not other Hasegawa B-24s). if you have them, please upload them to the product page, thanks!
27. July, 08:37
Hope that can help:
12. August, 11:18
it certainly does! thanks a lot!
12. August, 11:50
Mentioned in the watermark internet shop is my second place (after scalemates certainly) to search instructions and take a look on plastic. btw: I've newer used it as a shop.
12. August, 18:21
I have actually got some kits from then, and searched many times for instructions and pictures, but for some reason, I forgot this time! 😛
12. August, 20:31
Surprisingly I was not able to find these searching on shop site by kit# 00932, but can find by kit name "B-24D Liberator 'Formating Monitor'". Hell! I've started research it. It is able to find it on shop site if you add space after kit# like "00932 " 👀
13. August, 08:32
yes, i had the same issue, i could not find it with the number, but since thanks to you i knew it was there somewhere, i also found it with the full name. thanks for the tip about the space! that is a really good one

VAT for online purchase in the Netherlands.
VAT rules have changed for packages received from outside EU when you are living in the Netherlands. Now we have to pay VAT (BTW) regardless of the value. Up to June 30th, we had to pay only if the value was above 22EUR.

The one and only time I got a package from out of EU, it was an Me-163 just above 22EUR value, so the VAT was not much, but I had to pay 18EUR administratie kosten.... making it almost twice as expensive as I initially thought.... I am curious to know if now we also have to pay those administration costs, or if now they simply charge us the VAT without other charges. anybody has information or has received a package already?

If the package is more than 150EUR you have to pay import rights, can anybody tell me of those have any kind of "surprise" costs attached to them? Or do they simply charge the % mentioned in the website of the belastingdiesnt?

thanks in advance

Anybody has information about this?
12. July, 21:42
Martin Oostrom
In dutch: https://www.belastingdienst.nl/wps/wcm/connect/nl/internetaankopen/content/hoeveel-betaal-ik-de-douane-als-ik-iets-koop-bij-buitenlandse-webshop?utm_campaign=internetaankopen&utm_medium=cpc&utm_source=google&utm_content=dsa and https://www.postnl.nl/campagnes/aankopen-buitenland/

So a package delivered by PostNL always cost a minimum of €4 admin costs, or €10 if the value >€150. Import tariff on toys (we don't do toys, but customs might think otherwise) is max 4,7% of the value.
VAT (BTW) is 21% of (value + import tariff)

So a nice Tamiya kit of €89 + €20 shipping is €109 total.
Import tariff could be 4,7% of €109 = €5,12
value + import tariff = €109+€5.12 = €114,12
VAT = 21% of €114,12 = €23.96
Total cost + taxes is €114,12+€23,96 = €138,08
Handling cost by PostNL = €4

Total cost of a 'cheap' Tamiya kit from outside the EU is €142,08
19. July, 12:08
Martin Oostrom
Just read that import tariff is only on packages >€150, so that saves €5
19. July, 12:11
thanks a lot Martin. i am a bit confuse in one thing. is the import tarif applied to all purchases, or only those above 150EUR?
19. July, 12:11
Martin Oostrom
Only on those above €150. But we're facing a tariff of max 5%. The VAT is the killing factor as it is calculated over the Value + Shipping + Tariff
19. July, 12:23
so the 4 euros go to all purchases... great.....
19. July, 12:45
those cheap things from ebay basically double their price now.
19. July, 12:46
Patrick Hagelstein
Man, this sucks!!! Back in the days I would order through HLJ, because some kits were only available to the Japanese market. No way to apply Dutch VAT online, so PostNL provided that 'service' for you... I had to pay the kit price in administrative charges only to get my package from the post office. While living in the US I bought quite some stuff from HLJ with much lower shipping rates and without those f-ed up fees, tariffs and VAT. Boy oh boy, am I looking forward on going back... 🙁 Good thing is that my stash will not grow by any one kit anymore... Thanks Netherlands! 👍
19. July, 13:18
sucks indeed....

I'm afraid it is a EU wide rule. Brexit, anyone?

the truth is that most of the boxes in this project have two planes, so more twins coming 🙂

i discovered too late that Brengun has a PE set for this box... it could have made a nice interior. well, maybe i can use it with the 4 "spare" Komets i still have 😛
