Hi BA :)
Did they mention anything about the "send with next parcel" button

no but it works as it seems - because I haven't received a tracking for a parcel within 24 hours of payment -
which would imply for me the part hasn't been sent out - next test on tuesday when #14 is out which will be paid for along with a few 2cv parts -
if it works well, I should have a parcel tracking by thursday next week...

not yet andrew, apparently they received only a very small number of those - not sure when they'll top up,
as they pproved to be so helpful I wrote to the lady and asked about #10 again...

#13+#14 ordered today as well, 14 is the instrument panel,
let's see what is next as that one has nothing to do with the build so far (everything engine apart from the bonnet),
I would have thought we'll get the chassis soon to be able to connect everything else to that -
of course they could also keep us entertained with various suspension components or wheels etc...

so far the "surprise effect" is the only downside compared to EM or hachette where with every new issue you get a preview of what will come next...

#15 includes the instrument inserts and the rest of the missing bits and the lower carpeting of the dashboard...
at least we haven't been supplied something that won't be finished for a while - the teasing about the rest has been postponed to the next issue...

#15 (bought last week) and #16 from today are on the way,
it'll be somewhat over 2 weeks from now that I'll be able to look at the parts :oops: - #16 is the left front seat btw...

what I found out is the surface has apparently a very leather-like touch and look, I'd be very much surprised if #17 wouldn't be the other front seat...
I had hoped for something more spectacular but hey, in the end we need these parts as well, sooner or later they'll need to deliver the chassis Image

On the hachette Abarth the chassis was about part 20 from memory, so the individual sections were all put in 1 place, so to speak. Still no parts 4 or 5 (or 3)

I am up to date, I think casp may be missing one or two...
see, I told you andrew, sooner or later (but surely before we hit #110) you'll have all the missing pieces...

#4 is the bumper etc and #16 the seat, maybe it's not weight but size this time -
the federal post authorities all over europe have been quite inventive in generating more money -
if someting is flat (I mean REALLY flat) it'll go as a letter at a moderate price even if heavy -
if the same weight is higher than let's say 4-5cm it's exponentially more expensive :x

I am getting 4 issues now, #15+#16 ds and #66+#67 2cv and had something around 8,60 -
it's probably also depending on what the destination country authorities will allow - parcel or letter etc...

all this shipment price stuff makes :twisted: bay sales almost impossible -
with around 16€ for a 1:43 scale car no one will buy if you don't give away the stuff...
I've bought mclaren parts in the UK and paid 3GBP for the part and 8GBP for shipment...
anything goes..........................................

Had a delivery this morning of eight issues and they came in a smaller box than the previous four issues and the parcel wasn't that heavy.
Nice looking parts and very well packaged :D
in issue 15 you get the inside door panel in brown with a rough textured feel to it like the seat. I like the dash and clocks and now have the other main part for the engine.
I will add some part pics to my thread later.
