Norbert Bruggen VIIc Conversion

Postby rockhopper037 » Wed Apr 01, 2009 2:59 pm

Has anyone here used this conversion for the 1/72 Revell

VIIchttp://www.modelluboot.de/KITS/VII/VIIc.html

I have purchased one, but am having some issues with the assembly of the gear box, particually attaching the gear wheels to the prop shafts
Any help would be appreciated

Thanks

What is your experience with delivery times and availability in connection with Norbert Brüggen's products? What I hear makes me hesitate ordering from him, even though I am in Central Europe.

I have not heard negative stories about Norbert.
only one catch : he is a bit sloppy with e-mail. Do not expect prompt reply,
be prepared to not get a reply at all.

As far as I know Norbert is just a hobbyist, not a full fledged vendor.
he seems rather more interested in building than selling.

So, in case of questions and problems : call him at the times he indicates
(monday and tuesday, he lives in timezone GMT+1)
Phone nr and snail-mail address is on his website.

maybe a good idea to call and ask if he has whatever you want in stock.
if the item is out of stock, it might take a while.

Ordered from Norbert a couple of times. Only small parts, but had no problems with communication and I didn't have to wait long for my bits to arrive.

Norbert had my kit in stock
Delivery to UK took around 5 days, once payment had cleared
Its a nice kit of parts, but it isnt complete.
Personnally i'm having some problems sourcing spacers to fit the prop shafts to the gears
