Hi All, BigGrin

Covid 19 is not only affecting deliveries on a localised basis, but at both ends
of the delivery and every stage in between.

Let me give you an example:

A bit less than two years ago I ordered two items on ebay.

One within my own country (UK) and the other from the Far East The one from the Far East arrived two days before the local one.Blink Blink

Now as recently as today I have been looking for some items for my Dragster Build. Nothing huge, just a pack of small plastic pinion gears.

If ordered in this country, should arrive by Friday/Saturday. If ordered from the Far East anywhere from one to three months. (See pic below)

If the people sending stuff around the world don`t have a clue when something will arrive in a specific country, we have to accept that a Customer Services Department in "any" company on the receiving end (World Wide) can`t tell us when items will be available for despatch.


That`s the way of the world at this uncertain time.Crying Crying

Yup. I sent a package to France 1 month ago.I recently checked and it is currently in Tokyo?

I also ordered the AL Me109 kit from Spain and it arrived in 5 days.
