Yep, I knew that.
Its OK isn't it Chris?
You look after the 1WGB and Womby and I will sort the Navy Poll.


Yup, absolutely no problem at all. I knew it would conflict when I set the date. It's just if I push it back I start a domino effect and we end up with the year's GB season taking 13 months and that then escalates. It took a little effort to get the Years GB season to fit into 12 months comfortably, or relatively so anyway, and I'd like to leave it that way  ;)

I'm waiting for a decal sheet to arrive from the UK, tracking number says it left the UK on the 5th (and no further tracking info since), still don't have it yet so an extension for my build would be nice just to be on the safe side.

Have you enquired of the Canadian Post Office if letters are still coming from the UK, and how?
I don't want to worry you but anything going from Aus to Canada is going by sea and taking up to 60 days.  Could be similar from the UK.

Hope i'm wrong though.

Well the tracking notice said it was process though Langford and left by international carrier. The invoice from Hannants says Airmail. There's a Langford close to Hannants, and Langford is right near Luton Airport.

Sounds promising then.  I only know about stuff from Aus to Canadia which is why I suggested asking in the PO (if you are allowed to go there).  There could still be planes flying from UK.
They'll hate me for saying this but the Post Office staff should have access to more and better tracking information than you can access...

Well, I had a chat with the people at the post office today, envelopes are still going air mail but not parcels. I gave them the tracking number Hannants gave me and they got the same result as what I've been getting by doing it on line  ---- a blank.  But they told me if it landed in Quebec, I'm not likely to get it anytime soon, it's all closed down over there until the crisis is over (Quebec has the majority of cases and deaths of all Canada). With that bit of news, it doesn't look like I'll get my project finished even with an extension ----  :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

What I'll do is get it up to the stage where it looks finished and leave it at that. The other decals can go on later once I get the sheet. All that's left for decals is the large underwing serial numbers and the squadron codes of about the same size for the sides.
