Great stuff-i'll be asking at the counter for special stamps-see what they can produce

I can see where you are coming from, but i think the more miles this one model does the better and provided you guys don't mind, the further it's sent the more stamps needed

Can you post the link for the mileage calculator-looks good!

Re: Model around the world

I'm hoping to source a Delta 752 Breast Cancer Awareness 1/500 for the trip. I liked the idea of promoting a good cause. All being well the bird will be making her first flight to Sweden by the end of this week

EDIT: The map is class!!

Re: WINGS900 Community Members Unite For Charity: Model Around The World

I've had a few PM's about this, i think i have been a bit vague. The numbered list is the order. When you receive the model you PM the next person for their details. For example. I PM'd flight fan for his postage details. When he gets the model he will PM Alexakos. Willie you will PM Matt109 when you get the model and post it to him. So 1 sends it to 2 who sends it to 3 and so on...

Hope that is a bit clearer guys
