Many thanks to you guys. Shipped my stuff quickly and I love the little treats inside (helps me bribe my other half to let me buy tanks stuff)

For us guys in the states postage can be a killer getting stuff from Dave, but if you're ordering something light and flat, like decals or maybe photo-etched screens, Dave really isn't any more than ordering from a U.S. vendor. I ordered some decals from him and they got here surprisingly quickly (like about 6 days) and Dave was very creative about keeping the shipping cost down. Whenever I need specific sets (kind of rare but once in a while I need something) I check out forgebear first, and a lot of other cool small items can be had there as well, without me having to rant and rave about how the postal people are poundin' me again. 8) 8)

The question is, if we get the £500 Boris bonus, can we spend it at Forgebear tanks??

Is that like a "Stimulus Check"? They gave everybody one of those over here, for $1,200.00, and I hear they're gonna do another one, maybe for $1,500.00 but I won't get it, and I didn't get the first one, either. That's what happens when the feds say you're a career criminal!! @) @) @)

Sadly, I fear not.

All adults could be given a £500 vouchers by the Government – and children £250 – in a bid to kickstart the economy’s recovery from the coronavirus pandemic.

The vouchers would only be valid to spend in certain sectors of the economy, such as on the high street and in the hospitality industry, rather than online, as Chancellor Rishi Sunak looks to help the hardest hit businesses bounce back from lockdown.

Hmmm, so you can only spend it at charity shops & coffee shops, there’s bugger all else on the high street anymore.

But Dave is hospitality, think of the sweeties

Sounds like they put too many restrictions on the stimulus money over there. Over here, those that were eligible and had their tax refund direct deposited last year didn't even have to ask for it, the government just dumped the money in their bank account to do with as they please. No restriction whatsoever. Spend it on beer if ya want. And the stimulus money, as well as the extra $600 a week the feds kicked in for unemployment, are totally tax free. Don't ya just love those two little words? Definitely two of my favorite words, "Tax Free". 8) :haha:

Dave and Julie. What can I say that hasn’t already been said. I just received my metal turret ring and motor set from them today. Only 14 days shipping time. I have things coming from China that shipped on May 8th! Anyhoos, thanks for being there for us and thanks for the Gummy Bears.
Now I’ve gotta go install these awesome parts.

I've just received the same order as Mr Jimster with a few extra bits, in good time too.

It would appear that the royal mail has almost got back to normal service, I paid second class to make sure I received the order after the weekend, was posted Friday, received it this morning :thumbup:

Thanks Dave and Julie for another great transaction and perfect service :thumbup: :clap:

That metal turret rotation motor and ring really improved how smooth and steady my turret rotates! No more jerky movements or floppy turret syndrome.

Also from Dave I bought an alternative way to a smooth turning Turret,
I have already tried Metal Turret rings with bearings but Taigen make ABS Turret BASES with built in rollers in the base that run easily over the the Tank body with the Turret ring just controlling its direction.
Simply unscrew the original base plate and replace it with the modded version,
By using the Turret Base instead of the Metal Turret ring you can use a 360 degree Turret ring instead of being limited to 320 degrees because there is not a location for a slip ring on the Metal Turret Ring.
I have tried them in Tiger 1s and Panzer 4s both very good. :thumbup:
