Quick question why does it have a three spoke steering wheel? Most Ferrets have a four spoke steering wheel. Sorry if it sounds like I'm being pedantic but I know modellers like accuracy to point of counting rivets.

 

Cracking looking kit I might buy one

I had that nasty sinking feeling when I read that about the 4 spoke wheel....hurridly went away & check my pics again. And now all I can say is oh f**%^"$£ hell......how did I bloody well miss that ?:banghead:

 

Thanks for spotting that...(no really I mean it) I shall away this minute & get it sorted, new steering wheel before it gets released.

I just like Ferrets, but having had the fun of building one up and starting to build two others up you notice things. Probably not in a good way....

 

If you want a page on my site for you're Ferrets give me a shout I would be glad to have it.

Hi Matt,

Yep, know Nick well (king of Dudley) great bloke, helped me a stack with pictures of the Bedford & with doing kit reviews for MiS. Nick mentioned you & your Ferret to me already....how is the sciatica ? (Ooooh:cry:)

 

Nick should deffo join, very rarely do I ask a question on here & not get a proper informed & helpful answer. Friendly people with a wealth of info to draw on. Example, Clive Elliott help me out massively with the Pig project & loads of blokes offered internal Saladin pics.

 

Great bunch.

Ahhh, I thought so.

 

Yes, Nick is a sound chap, he sits a few desks away from me at Jag. Yes, the sciatica has been a nightmare. I had another epidural steriod injection yesterday so fingers crosseds this time. As I said to Nick, if you need any Ferret pics in detail, just let me know :-) I'll try again to convince him to register next week when I am back to work.

 

Cheers

 

Matt

Very true Chris....but then again, if I'd flogged all 50 kits I'd still be a happy man:banana:

Hello mate. Quite fancied a gander at the pics, but having found the Ferret blurb on the website and clicked on the camera icon, I get:

Sorry about the temporary cock up with the pictures. They were there for a few days & then I went a'fiddling with the site & accidentally renamed a file (the wrong file)....which in turn knocked out the links.:blush::blush:

 

That's what what happens when a Recy Mech is let loose on something he does not fully understand (applies to most things where hammers are not involved). Found the fault though today & they are back up. Please take a shuftie:D

The photos of military and civi vehicles in the GALLERY section are pretty mind blowing too - some very accomplished customers.

 

I do hope nobody will be offended if I say it would be great if you could put the Champ on hold and get the Matador out asap... :goodidea: :cool2:

FTM, N.O.S,

Thanks for looking in & having a browse through the Gallery too:)

 

Re holding the Champ back in favour of the Matador....I think the only people who might be offended are the ones who've alredy placed reservations for the Champ & are very keen to see it released. The masters for that were completed & despatched for casting a while back anyway, whereas the Mat is still being mastered up.

 

Odd story really, the Champ was slipped in inbetween the bigger vehicles & intended as a 'cheap & cheerful' kit....or so was originally thought. Small vehicle by comparison..."going to be easy & cheap to make, is'nt it" ?

 

By the time it was ready for casting that was far from the truth. It's turned into a right complex little bugger.

(Not unlike the real thing I would suggest :embarrassed:)

 

Cheers.......H
