Greymatter 1/32nd scale FW-190D-13 Conversion - Caveat Emptor

Recommended Posts

Hope this is the right forum - I purchased a Greymatter 1/32nd scale FW-190D-13 through Ebay ($35 plus $7 shipping from UK) a couple weeks ago - although some of the parts were useable, the fuselage parts were not, as they were warped and too flimsy for use.  Sought replacements - or partial refund. Seller refused, after many excuses (and negative feedback on ebay).
Caveat emptor.
Best regards,
Paul in SF

Paul: I can see where you'd be frustrated since you're stuck with some very lousy looking parts. Have you actually tried to take the warpage out, and do you know how? If not, and you'd like to try, email me at: slowhandshodges@bellsouth.net and I'll try to help you get them where you might be able to salvage them and at least build the kit.

Hey GIl -

Thanks very much for your support - yeah - I think if I heat them a bit  they might return to shape.  But the halves will still be ratty looking....a lot of filler and supporting tabs under the joins will be needed.

Frankly, I am so discouraged I probably will just build the stock kit.

Couldn't believe the owner of Greymatter, what a pill. He actually emailed me repeatedly bragging that he was continuing to sell the parts, despite the negative ebay feedback.
