Sorry for the delayed response.... Seems I misplaced this post
Thanks for the link I'll try them out.
I'm intrigued as to why an order for UK outline equipment went through Australian customs to get to Fredericksburg unless you ordered it from Down Under. Not the best idea, in my experience, if (reasonably) fast delivery is desired. I've ordered from a number of UK stockists and eBay providers over the past several months. No one order has taken anywhere near 3 weeks (the last came in 4 business days) and no package has been opened (a properly executed customs declaration helps).
No idea Carl, but it was ordered from UK and not Australia. I order from a couple of different suppliers, Hatton's seems to have the quickest turn around for me but they still take almost two weeks. One of the slowest to arrive after they ship is Book Law Publications. My first order from them took five weeks to get to my door, I never thought I'd get that one. The last one I ordered made it in three weeks so the transit time is getting better.
Who I really feel bad for is my Dad's cousin, every year without fail she sends me a new calendar, the woman is in her 80's. About half of the time they are opened and mauled. This past March my Mom & Dad were down from Ohio when it arrived. I kid you not the post mark on the envelope was from the end of November and it was ripped open and placed in a poly bag inside a USPS envelope with a letter stating they had inspected it. I thought my Dad was going to die laughing, it was mangled so bad. If I didn't think I would hurt her feelings I'd ask her not to bother.
Yes i recomend Brittania Models (604 -538-2698 ) , They carry Airfix, Hornby, Dapol , etc . Stuff comes in weekly and they shipp out to the usa and across canada . John and vivian pilliering are nice folks to deal with and im not saying that cus its my local hobby shop.
The British Connection in London, Ont also have stocks of Dapol kits.
