According to my wife's phone call just now, the UPS employee carefully left five boxes in my workshop. I am working at the company now and have a business meeting until this afternoon, so I will be able to meet Chieftain later in the afternoon.
My kit is No5. :D :D
"Hello 05, this is 04. Locstat noted. All other callsigns, report Locstat, over." :wink:

I have already informed Monique by email that I was chuffed as hell to be the first one reporting here that the kit had arrived, even though UPS did delay its delivery, so it was touch and go whether I would be the first or not.
She had said previously that I was always one of the quickest payers when the invoices were sent out, and also hassled her if the invoices had not been sent out, so she was going to do something special.
How she managed to delay my delivery at the UPS depots in Herne & Paderborn to wind me up, and then get the kit to me on the Monday morning although UPS were reporting sometime Tuesday and have it as the first kit being delivered, was definitely something special.

Hi John

I have test fitted the hull components including the front casting and it’s all been very good with only minimal cleaning up and filling required. 👍

Tracks are all clean - no rust but no doubt they will. 😐

Early days yet though.
