absolutely buy from WhoNA, they are some great people, they do sponsor us,
they have great service, and they also have great pricing!
oh and did i mention they deliver so fast your mailbox will probably be
on fire when your package arrives!!
Well, its coming to Canada, so Customs might be the stopping point.

So far their service is impressive. About 3 hours to get the shipping costs north of the border.

But that doesnt help with my quandry...

Which one do I buy next?

Here's how I decided my purchase order. I always have had
a representation of the Eagle Transporter in either a model
or a Dinky version. The Dinky I gave to a friend recently. So
when the time came to pick my first PE, I chose the Lab Pod
since I never had a representation of that style.
The gift set was a bonus since it contained a Lab Pod version.
I then chose the Freighter Eagle and my third purchase will be
a Transporter bringing Me full circle.

Not sure that I will go for the Medical or VIP as I'm not a completest.
BUT, I will get additional Transporters.

I vote for the Freighter Eagle. But you buy what makes you happiest.

It's down to the freighter or the VIP. I'll flip a coin and order next week

For years, as far as I knew, nobody had ever made an accurate kit of the freighter, and I always wanted one. Jim Small used to make a kit of the freighter pod, but I'd discovered that too late to get one.
The VIP is neat (just got mine thanks to a recent trade), but it is essentially a regular pod painted orange.
I'd go for the freighter. (And then the VIP!)

PE needs to do a version of the Nuclear Canister freighter Eagle since the current Freighter they make is actually a winch Eagle. Wouldn't it be cool if they did do one with all those tiny nuclear containers perhaps magnetically bonded to the floor plate of the Eagle pod?

Yes, thank you, it helps

You know what's fun to do is to watch Breakaway with all your Product Enterprise Eagles, and each time you see one of the Eagles in the episode, you grab the closest Eagle to what is on screen and fly it at the same angle in the air...

Okay, it's a bit silly, but I've done it

I've also just laid down on the couch watching episodes of Space: 1999 with an eagle sitting on my chest....

Wife thinks I'm nuts.

last night I put Breakaway on after I showed my son my Eagle. He wasnt too excited... but half way through was totally into it. Indoctrination!


The question is: Has my Set shipped yet?

I'm not at the shop and cannot say...but I think it left. I had a bunch of internationals leave on Thursday...when did you reply to the shipping quote?

While domestic shipments and Air Letter Post packages ship out daily from our facility, larger international Parcel Packages have to be taken up to the post office and shipped over-counter. As such, they only leave about twice a week simply because we cannot wait in the Post Office line on a daily basis. Regardless, delivery time averages 10 days from when you approve shipping costs. Could be less, could be more, but should be close.

I replied about 10 minutes after you sent it.

And the delay makes sense. No worries. I am just glad to see that a retailer posts here. Makes me feel a lot more confident spending my money with someone who has the same perversi... er... passions that I have.

Sometime around the 1st, you'll likely see another order come your way from me.

This is exactly one of my current model projects. The pallette pod is finished including metal parts (I used some washers). Only the waste containers are not finished yet. I will post pics as soon as it is done.

Yup, something exactly like that. Maybe I have a longing for one since I never had a Dinky Freighter to play with when I was a kid.

*peers at his smoking credit card*

Just ordered a PE Freighter and VIP Eagle from WHONA.

Brings the total to 4. 3 en route. I'll take a photo when they all arrive!

All praise to Keith for having a shop on this side of the Atlantic that I can buy them from!

Anyone out there interested in about 3/4 of the the Advanced Squad Leader system, including the 1st and 2nd Edition of the rule book, and Beyond Valor with Red Barricades? Need to eBay it so I can fund the purchase of an RU 23" kit.
