My wife bought me the t-shirt of that ^^^ for last birthday. She was puzzled at my very amused reaction as she had no idea about the 'pop group' connection.

I seemed to be the only model boater wearing that tee-shirt at Sumners Ponds Show yesterday!  :}

Don't ya just love these marketing people  :kiss: :kiss:

Model boat builders are charged 9.95 pounds for the T and 10.01 for P&P = 19.96 quid
Model tank builders are charged 11.69 pounds for the T & 4.10 for P&P = 15.79 quid

Why the 4.17 quid difference for the same article of clothing but just a few different words?  >>:-(

Only explanation is one is made in the UK and the other in the EU {-)....[or both in China O0]

There might be a different path between the PR sweatshop where they are made and the eventual seller, but it might also be that the marketing people know that model boat people are reluctant to part with money.

I would think those are different sellers, so different prices is expected.

Agreed, but I expect that the seller of the boat one knows his market demographic.
