    Nice.  I think the style C is the nicest of the paper.  Most is too busy.  I have the R62 half sheet and about half of the lobbies.


    I like the Hirschfield art on the RR HS

    Maybe not an AF joke! The Elliott 405 was the real deal. 55.5K likes on Reddit in 4 hours.

    Not sure what the joke is, or what is special here.  We use COTS processor modules about that size in many of our aircraft certified instrument designs.  Not this one, but similar units which are MIL and FAA certified.

    WOO HOO!  I found it!  As the cobwebs cleared from my swiss cheese brain, I managed to wrangle it from it's sleep, buried under a crapload of other posters!


  • HONDOHONDO Member, Wizard of Aus Posters Posts: 7,462 ✭✭✭✭✭ Elite Collector
     Nice poster and a great film. After all the hassle you went through you not only found the poster you were looking for, but you located '' a whole bunch of stuff" you had thought you didn't have anymore. I'd say you ended up a winner.

    You know what you shouldn't do on a Sunday morning?
    Plug in "Australian" to Heritage's past sales and realise how many friggen great posters you missed out on while you were busy with babies!

    Signs your collection is reaching the depressing saturation stage:

    1) Anticipating eMovie's latest foreign paper auction for days - "come on calendar get to Thursday..."

    2) Clicking on the auction link - "Woooooo here we go!"

    3) Noticing 554 (!) Australian posters - "YES! YES! YES!" (while greedily rubbing hands together and laughing diabolically)

    4) Start to scroll through the listings and audibly thinking "come on, come on where are the beauties I need - WTF is going on here?!"

    5) Getting to page 8 and trying to push aside the utter despair that begins to creep into your thoughts as the realization slowly begins to sink in that there may be NOTHING here for you...

    6) Maintaining some semblance of hope and perseverance to reach the last page 14 of listings only to, with increasing ferocity, begin slamming your fist on the desk in confusion.  Then, in a frenzy, going to back to the beginning to click wildly through each page (that your eyes clearly must have deceived you on previously!) --- before completing the cycle once again and finally accepting your futile fate that you are reaching Daybill Armageddon  :s

    @CSM_2_Point_0 .       

    Deja Vu! I am such an early daybill collector and i only noticed about ten that i would like to add to my collection.

    There were several Richardson's that i'll watch. But yes, i imagine an experience DB collector would have experienced similar frustrations....

    You daybill junky! You could sort by title / Australian, then limit yourself to 2 pages per day :)

    Or you could do what I did to get a fix and buy a Day the Earth Stood Still French Grande! Need to sell it so I can put that towards a daybill that might not come up for sale.

    Is alright.  I know how to solve your problem.
    I'll send you through a list shortly of posters I would like to acquire from your collection.
    Once you send em on, you can start re-acquiring...
    You're welcome  =)

    Get it together Ves!
