The Hood rides again!

Postby Ippy » Thu Jun 23, 2011 11:37 am

Today I've recieved a small parcel from Hachette saying 'Build the Hood' will resume in 24th Aug and the first dispatch will be free.

Also got a rather natty LCD desk clock.

Ian.

I also got my fantastic ( :lol: ) little portable clock, so it must be true, the HOOD will float again !! Having (almost) built Hachette's Bismark, I am much happier building their HOOD than D'Agostini's

Well, I havn't seen the Deag Hood, I can only comment on the quality of the Bissy componants, I dont think you will be too far of the mark with the quality on the Hood.

OK, so now I am confused, I have 6 issues of Deags Hood, do I wait for them to continue? Some of you say Hachette is a better company, is that reliability or models? Should I sign up with Hatchette and forget what I have spent with Deag. Your help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Terry :?:
