Read the details first before buying.
« on: February 28, 2024, 03:10:09 pm »

 Going through the Ebay sight came across an advert for as new sealed boxs of Revell  made Snowberry kits for 42.50 , thinking it was the revamped model originally made by Frog I bought one as my old Frog model is getting old and fragile. Imagine my surprise, when it arrived i found a kit half the size of mine, as i never knew Revell made it in two sizes. So I cannot complain i did not read the details closely so its my fault and it sets me a challenge to make it into a R/C boat!

Don't worry, it can be done without too much hassle. If you contact Klunk, he's got mine so he might be able to help with pics of the innards!

How about putting the kit back to sell on E-bay again later like half a year at a bit higher price ...?? {-) %%
If I were you , I would possibly prefer to do in such a way. %)

The lovely German LIfe boat Herman Marwede is like that as it comes in 2 scales.  I could kick myself as when they came out I could have had the big one for 12, but I complained about the postage!!!  Stupid or stupid?
