      Hi Kurt!
      I'm looking anxiously every day in my snail-mailbox for my CV-440s to arrive :-)
      It looks really good-at last an excellent replica of this hobby-wise highly neglected but important aircraft!
      It will look relly smart in Ruben's forthcoming three SAS liveries :-)
      Well done, Kurt!

      Hi Kusti,

      I'm sure that after Mika has done my SAS decals, at least he
      will start thinking about the Finnair and Kar-Air ones for his
      own range of decasl, Arctic Decals.

      Happy modelling,
      Ruben

      Hi Ruben,

      Mika promised that he wonīt only think but also act;)and as you know Finnish men "keep their word".

      Frank: if I calculated right (55,- + 15,90= 70,90€) itīs about 93 dollars but of course depends on exchange rate.
      But I can swear itīs worth for that.

      Hi Brad,

      Yes, you have to drill the nose cone hollow to insert about 20gr of metal.
      Anyway, you have to remove the sprue from the nose cone. Drilling it hollow will take about 10 more minutes.
