Congrats on what looks to be a fine publication, Ran. Getting this one to the presses must've added a few miles on, eh? Well done.

Thanks guys,

Jess: Thanks, PayPal confirmed your order. The book will be on it's way to you next week.

Romeo: No problem with the anti-spam filter (unless you are a computer LOL), PayPal confirmed your order. The book will be on it's way to you next week too.

PD: LOL... a few miles indeed. It's a book for all of us. Now, when some relative or friend queries about our obsession with mandollies, we can wipe out the big red mandollies book and tell them it's an artform!

cheers

The book can only be ordered directly from Ran. See the first post in this thread for the link to his site which has more about the book and ordering details.

Well, I have just received enquiries today for a large order from an individual.

Bur whether it's a mass order for a group of collectors/club or whatever, there is no special price reduction to be enjoyed save for shipping.

One thing for sure, you definitely won't find it in the bookstores!

Dave: "herding cats?" How quaint... and visually lovely; but no, life is not perfect but everyone did their best for the book!

I am still alive Romedome, just dealing with health issues but it's working itself out. Been to chat a few times.
I was so honored to be asked to participate in my good friend Ran's book. Everyone involved did a spectacular job and Ran, I'm sure worked his ass off, to put it all together. It's a mandoll work of 1/6 Masterpiece Art and I am proud to have been a part of it.

Damn good to hear from you Ron, and that you've got the health issues handled. I need to get my six to chat and do some jawing with you and the others.

Good to hear from you too PD. Yeah I think it took about a week for the 1/6 book to get from Singapore here to Utah. But I got it just before Christmas and what a thrill that was. It arrived in perfect condition.
I worked my ass off on the three 1/6 subjects I sent to Ran.
One is the Polish Hussar I completed with horse and all the accrudiments. Another is an ancient abandoned Vietnam temple Diorama with 3 North Vietnamese looking to the sky waiting for that B52 (not shown) to pass by. The third is another Diorama of a Marine pointman encountering an Maylay gate booby trap.
I did them special, for Rans project, and we all vowed to keep them secret for the book.
In fear of dreadful reprisals from the far east, I could not reveal, nor disclose, nor make any comment in passing, about the said project, that may or may not have existed, until now: They don't call him Ransome for nothing. LOL
Maybe see you in fridays chat

Carry on
