Re: Herpas Dash-7 ...my wishlist

Re: What 1:200 model is impossible for you to find

Mainly those which had a silver-painted belly, though. Those are now re-released in polished finish. The prototype TriStar did not have any silver/metal parts, so I would not count on a re-release...

Re: JC February and Future Announcement

Actually and honestly, any other policy should make you refrain from pre-ordering with a retailer. Charging your credit card before the contract can be fulfilled is inadequate.

Re: ORBITAL ATK with Pegasus rocket

When they don’t like what they buy (or have delivered), they are probably not happy. I can completely understand that someone does not accept a model which doesn’t make him/her happy.
