Lucky me, Tony Francis emails me back on the 14th, no problem, nothing shipped yet, he just got back from holiday, and he wasn't feeling to well so things were a bit backlogged. No problem, no rush. Tony reported on the net that he really wasn't well so things could be delayed, a few days later.
With only a couple of days delay, Paypal sent me a message that my order had shipped on the 23rd and today, the 28th, my order arrived. Well packed, the whole lot nicely in the box, wrapped in bubblewrap, hoverjeeps nicely in ziplockbags and everything copiously covered in foam filler chips...we call them wokkels :)
In no particular order....
SFS-5013 The Astral Pioneer cargo spaceship at 3.50 Pounds
SF15-915 Small Cargo Container at 1.75 Pounds each
SF15-1507 Wizard Hover Jeep at 3.00 Pounds each
But for some stupid reason my head didn't get the message and I had assumed they would be bigger. Only after reading the page again, but now with a clear head, I grasped the scale difference and canelled everything except one tester. Anyhow....
SSS-8067 Appartment Blocks (pack of 5) at 2.50 Pounds each
|Well cast, well made, look at those details! And yet bloody tiny.
There you have it, the usual small order from me. Tony is a gent to communicate with, quick replies, even for a man just back from his holiday and sick at the same time. Well packed, well made, what is not to like.
And in case you are wondering, no freebies in this one, the entire order was paid in full by me :)
Edit: I made a promise to myself not to order or trade anything new till these are finished (except the appartment buildings) so I spent this evening priming and basecoating everything with the airbrush, and gave everything a nice gloss varnishcoat as I noticed the containers have a bit of a rough texture as I assume they are cast off 3D prints? The space ship too btw, there are fine lines to be seen. When the coat has hardend it is time to add in other colours and decals, varnish them again and then weather and wash and rust them.
The 2 Wizard Hoverjeeps before being primered, holes filled in and one now has some sidewalls for his truck bed.
