    They're still nice models, but it's been so long, and I've had other things happening, that i can't remember what i was going to use them for!

    Well, i finally received the last items from my pledge on this project, not sure how others are tracking
  3. Fulfilling

    I think it depends a lot on the primer used I've had no problems using a rustoleum primer, but using other brands and the paint hasn't stuck, which appears as bubbling after the primer has set properly (2-3 days in my experience). I've seen exactly the same thing on car repairs when they haven't prepared the surface properly. I do tend to have a few days between priming and painting as well, so any primer issues do come up before I paint
  4. Fulfilling

    project is currently fulfilling. I received mine a few weeks ago, not sure if anyone else here is waiting.
  5. by the looks of it the metal pieces on sprue include the commanders hatch and cupola, as well as the drive cogs for the tracks - so the cogs on sprue will need to be added to the tracks. The schurzen (side skirts) obviously go on the sides of the tank, but I would recommend painting everything else before adding them, as they will make it difficult to paint anything behind them. If you do a google image search for Panzer IVH you will see lots of pictures that you could use for inspiration on colours and paint scheme - but as a general rule the colours will be Dunkelgelb ('dark yellow', but depending on who you read the colour ranges from yellow to a light greenish colour), Green and Brown, painted over a red primer, which the tracks were also painted in. If you have a look at West Wind's Website they have a photo of it assembled, so that should help you out a bit in working things out - but if you want more help on specific parts please take a close up of the sprues and I'll see what I can do...I normally work in 15mm for tanks, so they are a little different in some ways (in fact, I built 5 Panzer IVF1s this morning)
  6. Fulfilling

    Same for me - except that it is 3 rather than 2 metal minis.
  7. And an update to the post
  8. Chicken Little was right...

    I've just tested that on my account and it appears that shipping is only added if your total order will move you into another shipping tier. And that is only the difference between what you've already paid for shipping and what you now need to pay for shipping.

    AU postage changed something how the postage data had to be submitted, resulting in abnormal results to our queries, but we were able to get our query structure modified very quickly and now everything is reporting correctly again. I'd say I'm surprised, but really can't be as this sounds about par for the course :-( Thanks for getting it fixed.

    problem experienced yesterday has been fixed, and AU postage rates seem to be normal again...

    I'm currently having trouble with the pledge manager as well - the selection box isn't loading at all. It loads for Baseboss, which I have already checked out for, but for both Cav2 and Secret Weapon the login just gives me an empty page with only the header showing up. And yes, I've tried logging out and back in again, force refreshing and every other option that I personally tell people to do when they are having similar problems. The issue is occurring with all four browsers I have installed (IE, Chrome, Firefox and Edge). Some of these had never gone to the sites before.
  13. It is a diesel, but it has also been fixed. Probably still cleaner than other vehicle here without the fix...
  14. again, no miniatures stuff... This and this (representative photo)
  15. Delayed

    Finally the update that we should've seen in April - the stock has arrived at Battlefront UK and they are in the process of shipping them out. Now to see if everything that was ordered is actually shipped or if there continue to be problems (I won't be surprised if it is the latter!)
