    Default Wings of War - Contact to a french seller

    Hi together,

    I have recently get in contact to person in france, who has some wings of war stuff with good prices in my opinion.

    Got a schaefer for 45,00 Euro and a brumowski for 35,00 Euro (also a yellow balloon).

    As I know he has some more planes (e.g. another brumowski, a goering and a udet - the red/white in my signature, rahn, voss and a brown balloon)....I already have those ones but was thinking of buy them and resell them for lot more....but resistet - I want that others get the chance to get those at a good price..

    ....perhaps someone would help my too with my missing planes (see other threat).

    He said that I could give his e-mail adress to other people.

    My planes got on there way on Tuesday, so doesnt have arrived.

    So if someone is interested in some wow planes can contact me and I will send him the mail-adress.

    Will you please let us know when your planes arrive Andreas and in what condition.
    Meantime my advice to you chaps is Mea Culpa.

    Sure I will report....I know what the latin means...but what does "chaps" means.

    As the is a ebay-seller with nearly 1000 positiv reviews I am in good hope.

    He is one of those I cant find via ebay germany and even via ebay.fr I can find him only with specific search definition.

    I found him again and here he is:
    https://www.ebay.fr/sch/predacobra65...?_trksid=p3692

    He has some of this WoW-Planes on auction but has more (as said Udet and Goering).

    Hi Andreas,
    Chaps means fellow pilots in this instance. It can be any set of friends, say a Rugby team or a Set of drinking companions with whom you are on particular good terms. A very popular mode of address in the RAF during the two World Wars. The nearest to the American Buddies, I guess.

    Just a thought! In the early part of the century the term would have been exclusively masculine only I believe, but in these modern times it has become female also.

    At my time of life Rob I'm no longer sure of anything!
    They could also be cold sores on your fingers I think I remember. Now that could further confuse our German friend.

    I wanted to share that I bought that second Balloon that this guy still had available. The expansion arrived well-packed in just a few days from France to Belgium. Recommended seller.

    It were French editions, although I understand French, I prefer an English rulebook which can still be downloaded from the FFG site.
