Thread: BoB bomber release update

  1. #1

    Default BoB bomber release update

    I just got word from Ares that the BoB bombers and bomber pegs are due to ship from China this week. This puts them in the US about the first week or so of March.

    Sadly I got an Email from Evan letting me know he sent a dispatched message instead of a Pre-Order message.
    Like all of you nothing before March it seems.

    I was thinking the same thing.

    I was thinking the Corona virus should not be transmitted through models surely.

    It might be carried on the surface of the models or the packaging. It depends upon how long it can survive outside a body.

    I received word yesterday that the BoB bombers have landed in the US. I've sent in my pre-order list to Ares. Hopefully they arrive in time for me to get them shipped out before I go on vacation on the 20th of this month.

    Not at all. The bombers will carry the load of viruses with them.

    So now I understand why you do not like nigh camos - you are decreasing a chance of getting virus by 50% in case of this release!

    The good news is that the virus dies much quicker on hard surfaces than on soft materials. Aircraft will be fine. Crews Flying Jackets will have to go. My bonus cards are that they don't like alcohol or fire Andy.

    Looking at them now, Happy they are out. More then a little upset the tail crosses have been altered to make them politicaly correct. The Romans used that symbol and the Germans stole it when they were copying the Roman look in the late 30's. So now the world must pretend it does not exist because of a bad 15 years in history. But then they are starting to do the same thing with the Confederate battle flag here in the US. I figure 10 years down the line cons will be telling us we can not have that flag on our minis because it offends someone 3 states away.

    Sigh...getting old and crankey I guess.

    Ares Games will not risk anything on the EU market.

    I understand you.

    Good thing: In this scale you would not recognize it much on the table.

    ...and you can fix it with decals. (so I did for the repaints not all my German planes)

    In fact you don‘t risk an infection with miniatures and the package.

    They have to comply with the laws regarding display of the symbol that exist in a number of countries so have little choice in the matter.

    As for the EU market, I fully understand, just getting a little crankey because I have not been off my property in over a week. Put a real dent in my commission work.

    My Bombers arrived today. A quick inspection confirms all are complete and the only problem is that on at least two of the bases there are marks that will not polish off. It is similar to marks I have made by touching perspex with superglue fingers while still wet. Has anybody else had this?

    Nope, they're being held at my request. Only having one big Lootcrate every 4-6 months helps keep the front-desk crew happier...

    I am thinking of grabbing another daytime Dornier too DB. That would give me the option of a total of 7 German day bombers over Britain at any one time which is all my table can really handle. All my other German and Italian bombers are painted up for Malta and the Western Desert.

    yes, to my chagrin I noticed that Keith apparently has sold off all he had re Ju88's and Do17Z-2's
    I really "need" 2 Do17 Z-2's (WGS 205A).
    Anybody knows when they will be restocked ? If at all that is ...

    Guus, the warehouse is closed so until Indiana goes back to work the retailers' existing stock is all there's gonna be on the market.

    MAYBE in a month or two, depending ho fast Indiana progresses through phases...

    Yes, I figured that so many held off too late. One is best served by having a mminis savings account ready at first release, pre-orders will get them, wait a week and they are gone! That's how it goes now . . . remember the Dh-2's were so unwanted we had a painting contest? They were every where, those were the days you could walk into a game store and walk out with an armload of planes . . . Ah well, get them while you can, even the ones you don't want. All my sources are out of the new bombers a week after they arrived. One hopes there is a crate of them in transit somewhere.

    I'm buying the new BoB bombers from Evan in Australia!

    First ones were from Keith, but no one in the UK has them yet
