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.

No. No it's not. I need one, too, if I'm to have a hope of finishing my one build.


Fred!?

Oh go on then. Two weeks extra?

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.

Probably been sunk by a Chinese submarine, considering both our countries are having lots of problems with China   ;D ;D ;D

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...

I could use an extension too. Way too much PSR and painting going on on my house!

  There could still be planes flying from UK.


There's still lots of cargo flights across the Atlantic. That radar plotting site that JayeBee linked shows them up a treat.

There's even some pax flights too, vis. a BA 777 inbound from Miami right now.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

OK, I haven't specifically heard from El Wombato on the subject but he does say back in the dim mists of antiquity (page 5 pf this thread) that he could do with an etension.

We'll therefore allow one.

Two weeks extra.  This GB will now finish local midnight Sunday 14th June 2020.  That's the midnight which falls between Sunday and Monday.

Neighbour of mine is a hostie with A Major British Airline, currently working Out of LHR on the temporary freight conversions of passenger aircraft.
To and from NY the other day; out with gold and diamonds, back with medical supplies and.......a cat!

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

Everyone else can get in touch with our feminine sides and multi-task.
