  1. I recently contacted Takom Models in an attempt to get a replacement part. I started by going to their Facebook page, and contacting them through Messenger. I made contact with someone at that location, and explained my need. The person on the other end replied with an e mail address similar to the main company e mail address. I then sent my request to that address. It's been about 5 days, and I've yet to get a reply. My question is; Has anyone tried to obtain a replacement part from Takom, and what kind of customer service can I expect? Thanks for providing whatever info you can!!! Doug
  2. Hi Butch, glad to see you here!! It was awesome to see you in Nooga and am looking forward to seeing at Jaxcon!! Doug
  3. I tell you, I had a blast at the Nats this year!! I don't want to turn this into how many superlatives I can pour into one post, but if I did, they'd all be an understatement!!! (Sorry, couldn't help myself!!) Mike Moor's idea of pushing display models was brilliant, and the model count was staggering as a result. It is a model show after all, and he high quality on display certainly put our reason for being there out for all to see. I loved the venue, and Chattanooga is a wonderful city!! I managed to get over to the Towing and Recovery Museum and wasn't disappointed. Mike, you and your team did a great job, and I'll add my thanks to those who have already done so!! Hope you guys do it again in the future!! I'll be back!! Doug
  4. The Nooga team did an amazing job in putting this years show on!! Mike Moore and crew went above and beyond to bring us one of the top Nationals I’ve attended!! Bravo Zulu!!
  5. Welcome back Pat!! Glad you decided to reenlist!!
  6. Hi Rick, I'll do automotive if no one has spoken for it yet. My contact info is Hamy3@aol.com for e mail, and 203 461 0534 for my cell. Give me a call in the next few days to work out the details of what's set up in terms of image transfer and such. Doug

    Color question

    I’ll post some pictures as I go. So far it’s been a really fun build, and am making steady progress!! As for the size, it’s huge!! I had some of the sub assemblies at our club meeting last week, and had it placed next to a completed Panther tank. It’s gonna be big!!

    Color question

    Thanks Brian!! I was able to figure out what I needed. I'll be using colors from the AK line of paints that match the color guide well. Not ready to apply any paint yet, but I have them!!!

    Color question

    I recently started building Takom’s Krupp 420mm Howitzer (Big Bertha) and one of the schemes is for a gray, green and brown version. Im hoping someone can steer me towards which gray the German military used during WW I. It looks a bit like the early WWII gray seen on German Armor, but I don’t know. Any help you all could offer would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you!!!
  12. Thanks Mike!! I’m sure a number of attendees will welcome such a list!! Doug
  13. With no banquet being planned, will there be a listing of restaurants close to the facility, or within short driving distance? Looking forward to coming up to see you folks!! Doug
  14. Another great event Gil!! Congrats to you and your team for putting together another fine show!! Doug
  15. I booked my room before the Marriott block opened, as I'm a Marriott Rewards member. As the block hadn't opened yet, I couldn't reserve as part of the block. The room cost was only $5.00 a night difference, so the extra squag for my stay will be about $25.00. I couldn't wait the few days extra, and book in as part of the block. I had no problem getting my room, and was able to pick the type of room I wanted (King/Double)based on my desire rather than block availability. See everyone in Nooga!!!
