  1. No, not yet as I still assume it’s the post office’s fault. I just can’t believe that the magazine can get to another continent but can’t reach an address on the same continent. Guys were buying them in store about 2 to 3 weeks ago (here in Canada). But as a subscriber I’m at the mercy of the post office. And at this time magazines are extremely low priority for them. That’s why I’m grumbling that I won’t see this new issue until January as magazines will have even lower priority during holiday parcel rush time. I’m not blaming anyone associated with the magazine, I’m kvetching about the postal services in our respective countries that don’t give a hoot about getting an item that you’ve bought and paid for, even as insignificant as a magazine, delivered to you.
  2. Wow! That looks sharp! Now I have 2 magazines to look forward to getting. 209 and this one. At the rate 209 is taking, I guess I won't see this one until after January 1, 2022.
  3. O.K. Now I'm starting to worry. Three quarters of the way through October and issue 209 still hasn't shown up here. I blame the post office but 2 months is getting rather ridiculous. Hopefully it shows up soon.
  4. If the human race keeps expanding and more and more we use up earth’s resources, we’ll have to look to space for resources to keep this planet going. While all this looks like expensive fun, hopefully one day it will lead to an ability to keep this planet and her people going. As Captain Kirk used to say “Space, the final frontier”. Welcome back to Earth, Captain.
  5. Exactly what I’m hoping! But there are lot of questions that need to be answered before we know if we can go or not. Fingers crossed.
  6. So sorry to hear this news. Just know him from the board, (although we probably crossed paths at NNL East without knowing it), but always appreciated his contributions here. Condolences to his family and friends.
  7. Don’t worry not here in central Ontario either.
  8. Bill, I suspect you could get in the car. It’s the getting out that would be the challenge! 😆
  9. Yes, I've said the same thing many times. The one that stands out in my mind was about 10 years ago. We were having a lawn sale and the weatherman at the local t.v. station said absolutely no rain in the forecast for Saturday. Dry, dry, dry. The local radio station said the same thing. The weather network said the same thing. So, of course, I didn't bother digging any tarps out to cover stuff in case of rain. About an hour into to the sale, the skies got dark and it started to rain. I thought it must just be a quick cloud burst because there was no chance of rain. But it kept raining so there was a mad scramble to find tarps. It ended up raining for over 2+ hours! How can you get it that wrong?
  10. The op asked about hobbylinc which is an American company. If he meant hobby link japan, it is not clear as he’s used the spelling for the American shop.
  11. Great to hear! Hopefully the border is back open by then and those of us from the Great White North can attend.
  12. Received my copy today in central Ontario, Canada. Probably had arrived Thursday or Friday but haven’t checked the community mailbox in a couple of days due to inclement weather. Took a quick look through it. Seems like a real spiffy issue.
  13. Yes, I'm getting the same thing on my iPad. The board is fine on my MacBook but on the iPad It's pushed to the side. Of course I always hold the iPad horizontally, not vertically like a phone when the web. Don't know if that makes any difference.
  14. Well, he was driving a loaner from Hyundai. He was commentator at a golf tournament being presented by Genesis (high end Hyundai) and had use of the vehicle. I'm sure the company was willing to co-operate with investigators to find out why one of their brand new cars went flying off into the trees.
  15. Very sharp Camaro! Matches the advertisement quite well.
  16. In my area of Ontario, Canada they are just starting on the 80 - 84 year olds. At 60 - 64 age group I’m looking at another couple of months before I have any hope of seeing my first shot. And since none of the vaccines are made in Canada and now some countries insisting the manufacturers keep the vaccine in country and not honour contracts it could be well into summer before I can get even one shot. Oh well, it’ll come when it comes....
  17. So Danno, you have a thing about bar codes? 😂
  18. Unfortunately the illustration for the 57 Cadillac makes it look like someone stole the driver’s side wheels and tires.
  19. Hello from Ontario. Welcome to the forum.
  20. Revell did produce a Herbie kit way back in the day. Rare to find these days and I don't know how accurate it was.
  21. I guess one of the reasons I'm sceptical is that we just lost Squadron. The way I heard it explained is that they were bought out by an investment company who put their own manager in the place, who didn't know the model hobby industry, didn't really care about and slowly but surely managed to run it into the ground. As long as Tom Lowe is around I have hope but if we hear he has left, I'd be worried. I'm also a little concerned when there is mention in the statement about the collectibles industry. I know this is a large part of Round 2's business but as a model builder when hobby industry or model industry isn't mentioned, I kind of second the uh oh..... Are we going to favour collecting over building? Anyway we shall see. It's quite the big news for our hobby.
  22. Michaels here in Ontario, Canada used to have 40, 45, 50% off coupons on a regular basis. Since the pandemic hit they’ve been only 30% for months now.
  23. Do you mean Morgan Automotive Detail? If so check car aftermarket section. There is a thread there and Kris has responded recently to a question there.
  24. I would probably say yes to most of your list but a big definite YES on the Volvos. I have the BTCC wagon but I would love to get the sedan for a reasonable price and the Turbo Estate as well.
  25. Lots of Volkswageny goodness there. Eagerly anticipating the T2 and T2 Camper. And some cool reissues of other early VW Transporters. Cool!
