Hobby - The Vagaries of International Post

 "I've seen things you people wouldn't believe"

Everyone will know the difficulties currently being experienced with global logistics. Here in New Zealand we are now living with a "no-delivery" directive of US Postal Service, meaning that the only shipping options involve the use of couriers.

Against that backdrop, I got a surprise yesterday. A parcel turned up from Elrick's Hobbies in the US Midwest, which contained some of their resin bases. I placed the order for these in May and they were dispatched (with tracking) on May 28th.

Prior to yesterday's arrival, the last information around this parcel was that they had arrived in Ho Chi Minh City on the 4th June. Since then, nada, 

So whether they have been sitting in a postal facility in Vietnam for the last 5-6 months or more likely sitting at a NZ Post facility in Auckland, there is no doubt that they have seen some shit.

As always, the product from Elrick's Hobbies is first class and I now have the bases for 30 Death Guard where are those models 😁
