Wow Tim,

Sorry I missed that too and a hearty congrats on your Ruhestand (retirement in German). Lots of time to Moggell now, so get cracking Bud!!!

Damn evilbay strikes again. this kit sat at €16,49 with 3 seconds to go and stupid me clicked on €17 and ended up winning it. I should be shot. I just wanted to raise the price for the seller a little,

353272

And this afternoon at my local Norma store, they had this for €9,99 so I just had to buy one,

353273

Now I have to figure out what I will do with it. Luckily it comes with a 3 year guarantee..……………………………..Use it for scratchy building I guess...……………..

Prost

Hi Allen
Thanks for that.....still getting used to it....and can’t model until I get the man cave back after we move. Now up to five days trying to complete the exchange so it’s beyond frustrating....
Nice haul by the way, the vernier is a really useful tool I found....not just for modelling.....

I bought myself one of those digital ones a few years ago. The battery runs out like crazy, though — it gives every impression the electronics are always powered up, only the display getting turned off after a while. Could be this is because I bought a cheap one, but I’ve fallen back on a trusty analog one that doesn’t need me to put in new batteries every time I need it.

With my luck Paul, I will probably use it once or twice a year, so pulling the battery is a great idea. Thanks!!!

I intended to do that too after the first one ran out, but because the lid is held on by two screws, I find it too much of a hassle :smiling3:

If mine did too, then I’d also still be using it just like you, by removing the battery when I don’t need it. Maybe I should just buy a new one like that and sell the old one :smiling3:

This book unexpectedly dropped onto the doormat today, a complimentary copy because one of my photos appears in it and I think I also helped one of the authors get some details right. Though of course I haven’t finished reading it yet, it certainly looks like a good book to get for anyone with an interest in the AMX-13.
