Up for grabs is a fairly new Testors air compressor, guaranteed to have less than 3 hours of run time. Iíd like to give to our young modelers of Armorama, (age limit up to 25) that do not own a air compressor. Postage will be paid by me, so thereís nothing left for you to do but to post your name here, and on January 31st the names will be tossed into a hat in which the winner will be drawn from. Please, only enter your name if you do not have an air compressor and that your part of the younger group of members.

Edit: It doesn't matter where you live, all Countries welcome.

Good Luck,
Joe


Part Number: TES50204
Product Name: Mini Compressor Blue Ice
Price: $85.00

Thank you Joe, It's guys like you that make this forum great!

I think you are not just giving the compressor away, you just put a smile on everyone's face on this fourm.

Fabulous offer and a real boon for a younger modeller.
How about bunging the name of the 9 year old whose dad showed such pride in showing his Diorama in a previous thread. That lad shows real promise for the future.

Hey Joe, what a great gesture. Cheers to you!

But there's one thing I don't quite get...

Are testors air compressors really that bad? You only get a guarantee of less than 3 hours?

BTW, I have a compressor... so, yup.. I don't qualify...

Mother, do you think I'll paint the MiG?

Ahhh, Pink Floyd rules!
And now, with this, you do too.

My name is in the hat.

JM, what Mother meant was he only used this compressor for less than 3 hours. This compressor is virtually brand new.

LOL. Either JM was making a joke, or that was a hilarious misunderstanding. Either way, I was entertained. (Which is what matters, of course.)

New Posting from above, age limit is 25

Good Luck
