In spite of UPS's effort to destroy it, my Meng Dr.1 arrived intact!   Even with the beating it took, the kit is in perfect condition including the delicate center wing.

Mine was shipped UPS SurePost and after examining the label(s) determined the damage was most likely done by UPS before handing it off to the USPS.
I give kudos to my local USPS as they made sure it got to me even though much of the tracking label was destroyed.   :)







Got to say it's a great little kit!  And as far as I'm concerned, the instruction booklet is just fine.  Every bit as good as most other non-WNW kits.  It will serve its purpose which is to get the kit built.

Cheers,
Eric

Mine was shipped UPS SurePost ... .

Looks like the USPS Trained Elephant missed his mark somewhat, so glad your kit was intact!!

"SurePost" in my experience is "SureIsSlowPost", with USPS adding three to five days after the handoff from UPS.

My package from Sprue Brothers was timely and perfect, thanks goodness.

Ooooh!

The Dreidekker survived the 'flight'..





As far as I can see this is a very nice kit. It feels very WNW's except for the Boxart  :(

After nearly a year I took a 30 mile (!) trip to my LHS to just check it out and buy some paint... I saw this on the shelf at a really reasonable (for South Africa) price so I nailed it.. But couldn't help myself from starting to chop, trim and glue today! A-model Nieuport 16 .. looks like a really nice kit!



Aah! Us modellers! No cure!
