BTR: Ricobella

Post by scorchedearth » Tue Sep 17, 2019 4:25 pm

I really don't like having to post this. My first deal with Rico was when I GAVE him 3 28mm tanks. I offered the vehicles as a donation to anyone who replied first to my post.

After receiving his FREE items he asked for more stuff. A deal was struck. I sent him miniatures to paint and half of my payment. It has been 5 months. I waited patiently and now have asked for my stuff back. Rico is avoiding me now. I just want my miniatures back. He can keep the 1/2 initial payment.

This is just sad. No good deed goes unpunished I guess.

I will forward emails and other correspondence to anyone that asks.

Hey Rico

My email is c.sebour@gmail.com

The Polski 621's are much bigger than 1/56th. I had mentioned that in the post on bartertown. I do not mind making a few more for you at 1/56. I'll get right on that.

The sd kfz 10 ausf b's were very small. I'll atach a picture for reference. Could you double check them? Then send me a few pics of them next to some bolt action figs?

They are much much bigger than the 1/100th FOW vehicles, I assure you.

Hello Chad. I just got home and open the box. Wow. That is a lot of figures to paint more than I imagined. Let me know if you want me to Base them or you will do them. I started to prep them per packs.
As for the traded stuff I have several questions. The Polski trucks are huge. They are 1/35th scale which are bigger than the Bolt Action 1/56 mm or 48 mm. One of them has a broken wheel as well.
As for the Sdkfz 10 Aufs b trucks these are in reverse, they are tiny in comparison to the 1/56 scale of Warlord . They are more appropiate for 15/20 mm Flames of War games.

The Japanese Ha Go is all so tiny it is made for Flames of War. As you know I play Bolt Action 28 mm. I sent pictures to compare them to the Ha Ro that you printed before for me.
As for the barrels and crates, one of the sets is off right in the middle and look like was glued. Misprint? Ok. LMK bud.
Please send me your to swnd you the pictures. I'm at:
rcorrea1567@live.com

Thanks
Rico

That's everything in the picture. And I will throw in some waddle fences also.

Not sure where Randy has been. I think he is currently on a family vacation.

I'll send out everything tomorrow. Thanks Rico

Sounds great Sir. Considering you gave me 3 free tanks. Thank you again for that Sir. Ok its a done deal Chad.
What I was saying is that I prefer the figures not based as I paint them first at that scale individually after the base colors that are airbrushed and then seal later after brushing them with details and wash, etc.. I can paint them and seal them. Then I'd send them back to you to base at your leisure and liking. Just remember to seal again due to the basing for more durability.

PS- I never heard back from Randy. What happened?

The minis I need painted are all 15mm Flames of war stuff. You do not have to base them. I will do that myself.


Here is what I will provide in the trade:
x5 8.8cm Flak guns
x3 Polski 621 trucks
x4 Sdkfz 10 ausf b
x2 Sets of Barrels/ropes/crates
x1 Ha-Go ( I will print this out for you tonight )

That's a $160 value.

If this seems fair to you, I will send you everything tomorrow.

Look great! So the other stuff and the Ha Go? Also its easier to paint non based. I would base them after painting them. They are 1/72 scale is nicer when painted first then based.

I can base them myself. Just need the miniatures painted.


We're you not interested in the x5 8.8cm Flak guns, x3 Polski 621 trucks, x4 Sdkfz 10 ausf b ?


I don't have any B&P stuff at the moment.


Each box of stuff has a desription on it. German WW1 figures mostly. There is one box of US WW2 infantry.


I'm guessing that there are 100 figures or more.

Hello Chad. Wow! That is a huge amount of figs to paint and base. I'm very interested in a lot of terrain for Blood and Plunder. Looking for gun entrenchments, houses, huts, wicker fencing, gabion, sacs, barrels, market stalls, Piers, docks, ropes, stone walls, etc. I'm also interested in a Japanese Ha Go. Can you send the pics of tbe B and P stuff.
How would you like me to base them for you Chad? I'll work on them STAT as soon as I received them. What nationality are they so that I can do the research on the uniforms, weapons, etcs to work on them.
My email is :
rcorrea1567@live.com
Let me know Sir. Thank you and God bless.
Kind regards,
Rico

Hey Rico

I have some WWI Germans that need painting and one US WWII infantry command.

I'd be willing to part with the x5 8.8cm Flak guns, x3 Polski 621 trucks, x4 Sdkfz 10 ausf b

I will also throw in the crates, barrels and rope terrain that you like.

These are well worth over a hundred dollars.

Let me know if the trade is acceptable and I will send them out ASAP.

Hi Rico

Yes they are still available. They have been painted somewhat. What's your email? I will send you pictures. Were you interested in a trade or commission work? I have a bunch on WWI troops 15mm that need painting.
