Sorry Jan, can't help you with this one I'm afraid but my motto now is "Caveat Emptor", or "Once bitten twice shy"!

Jan, just checked "Bestscale models . com", looks very similar to "bestship models.com". If  I were you I would avoid it like the plague!!

This has been moved here and locked.  If you find a site that is dealing in pirated plans or doesn't deliver, open a topic.  If warranted, it will be added to this.
