Operation Ball Lightning One

   Earlier today, a huge operation which we decided to call Ball Lightning took place at Special Hobby premises in Prague, Horni Pocernice. Or to be more precise, in our courtyard as you can see in the photos taken during the op. And why such an odd name? Well, because the course of action of the whole operation bears striking resemblance to a 1979 huge multi-flat exchgange comedy film of the same name. For the production of the model kits we make for you, our company has been using three a bit oldish injection presses which we have decided to get rid of and replace them with some more modern units. The three presses, weighing several tons each, were pulled out of the shop floor and gave way to two (just two, for the time being, more to come as you will see) nice and new machines. And as the entrance to the courtyard was not wide enough to allow an easy access to the trailer with the new presses, the machines needed to be moved two times each. And you know what, there is Ball Lightning Two to come sometimes next week which is going to bring us the third, state-of-the-art injection moulding machine.
