    International tracking usps

    Some international shipments can also be tracked by customs declaration number which is very similar to standard one.

    Two 1/48 Su-34: And the winner is...

    Su-34 doesn't need metal gear, I think. It weighs 0.6 lb(272 gram) with resin KAB-1500, R-77 and wheels. AMK MiG-31 is just 0.05 lb(22 gram) heavier with resin wheels.

    Dspiae circle cutter

    Some rogue sellers provide fake tracking numbers. Might be your case.

    Flory models sponge sanding sticks

    They can be easily made right at home. I use old stick as a base, remove sandpaper and underlying mounting tape with few drops of Ronsonol, then stick new mounting tape from any hardware store and new sandpaper on top. New sticks probably don't look as beautiful but work exactly the same.

    How's this for a package arrival?

    My KH Su-35 came in a worse contition. However just one part was broken and it is easily fixable.

    Well, postal routing does not bother me (it is logistics after all, not logic) as well as delivery time. However shipping cost is often a deal breaker. Shipping of a large kit approaches $60 and there is no way I'm paying this.

    Static discharge wicks

    I don't have a Flanker either, what a pity. But I did work on Su-15 and studied Yak-28 in training unit some 30 years ago 🙂.

    Static discharge wicks

    Right, this could have happened, old Sukhois had longer dischargers, but still not 10".
