There has been a problem with an internet scam
Someone, pretending to be me, has sent requests to send cash by Western Union
This is a SCAM. Do not reply. Delete the message. (Email address is slightly different from ours.)
We never ask for cash payments in this way.
We now ask you NOT to send cards details by Email
You can place your order with your address by Email.
You can telephone the card numbers to us, or we can send you a PAYPAL request
which you can pay securely with your card.
We can also accept bank transfers for larger payments, but this is clumsy and slow.
PAYPAL. This has higher charges, so we must add 5% to the bill. There is also the problem of quoting the price.
We have to pack the order first, then weigh and measure it, then check various carriers prices, Then send Paypal request.
Then we have to wait for a reply. This all takes time and we do not have space to have parcels hanging around for days or weeks.
Quite often the customer never replies, so our work is wasted.
With card we can pack the goods, then immediatly take the payment and dispatch the parcel.
We have never heard of email card details being 'intercepted'. We think this is just a myth.
Please dont ask for price quotes on goods where the prices are all given on our pages.
We are not a shop selling others products, We have to spend all our time MAKING our kits
and developing new ones.

I heared this comment. "Light models are no good in wind, they have no penitration."
By 'penitration', they mean 'airspeed'. So - light models have low airspeed?
Easy to solve - open the throttle and put in DOWNTRIM to hold it level!
High speeds are possible with light models.
My biplanes fly in all weathers, and even my Bleriot flew in 20 mph wind at the Nats.

We went to a model show in France.
Just like all shows, the models took-off in
swarms and flew round and round.
They all started doing low passes with the model in
semi knife-edge, with the top side showing.
They called this an 'English Pass'.
Well, I've never heard of it, but I guess that in a
French pass, they would show their bottoms!
The scale competition classes
F4C. The top class.
Stand off. For those are not good at building.
Flying only. For those who can't build.
F4C. the top class
F4G. for those who can't build light.
F4H. for those who can't build.
F4J. For those who can't build, with those who cant fly.
A Christmas poem.
Jack Frost roasting on an open fire.
Grandad picking at his nose
Auntie Carol getting drunk by the fire
and blokes dressed up in womens clothes.
some whiskey and some tins of beer
Will help to make the uncles fight
and great grandma and old auntie Flo
will both drop off to sleep alright
We know the sales are on the way
Mum loads the car with goodies,
then Dad has to pay
And every mothers child is going to cry
for the batteries we forgot to buy
And so Im wishing you this simple phrase
for kids from one to ninety three
Now I'm drunk, with my eyes all aglaze
So, Merry Christmas, to me!

Building an accurate scale model is not 'as THOSE
aircraft WERE', but 'as THAT aircraft
WASs', or better 'as THAT aircraft IS'.
