    Hi Joe - searching on the web it seems like a lot of the model boat shops in the US have closed down - like the Dromedary which always had an interesting range of boat related things. Still get Model Expo emails since I used to buy from them long ago - but the range of goodies has been very much reduced.
    Graupner in Germany closing was a real blow to the hobby as they produced a wide range of very useful items - It seems when you see bits you want/need you had better buy it at the time - might not be available tomorrow..........
    Missed out on a couple of very nice kits from George Turner that way as he went back to making figures & Scalextric type car bodies.

    Cash,
    Being in the states I too like the Krick site, it seems the better boat suppliers are in the UK or Germany. Good luck!

    How about this. Leaflet through our door. Village street party to commemorate 75 years of VE Day to be held early May. Wishful thinking or plain ignorant?

    "Bedfordshire Clangers" ??
    Never 'eard of 'em!
    Sounds like some sort of rural cock up Nerys๐Ÿ˜
    What you describe reminds me of the Cornish Pasties Granny used to make.

    Hi Cash,
    "Man, Iโ€™d love to order from Krick direct, but I donโ€™t think they ship to the US, "
    If you don't ask you don't get!
    I've noticed several firms that only list EU rates, but they will generally quote rates to other countries for what you want.
    Depends on what you order (no paints etc presumably), total weight/dimensions and the carrier and tracking option you choose.
    Suck it and see! ๐Ÿคž They may at least refer you to a distributor in the US.
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Hi Doug, think you are talking about Bedfordshire Clangers. I've never made them but I was fed one once years ago. It is the traditional farm labourer's food of Bedfordshire and neighbouring counties. It's like a long pasty, two thirds of the filling is savoury, meat and potatoes and the other third is sweet, such as apples and cinnammon. Any variation of filling is quite acceptable. The idea is a whole meal in one item.

    Good for the waistline I believe! Nerys
