Thank you for the link I will have a look at what they offer.

If that's true about the added shipping, get your Masterclub stuff from http://www.euromodelshop.ch -- if that's all you order, Daniel will send the stuff to you in an envelope first class.

For those that are getting their camels, please open the box and look how sprue D is placed in the box.  It seems that the entire contents are bagged in addition to the individual sprues being bagged.  In both of mine, sprue D was placed in the box to where it was smushed in.  This caused some flexing in the trees.  Luckily none of the parts are damaged, but if I had let it sit, it probably would have warped a few parts.  All it takes is to open the outer bag and rotate the sprue.  Everything fits perfectly then.

Same here, seems that the person/machine packing these kits decided to put that sprue length wise vs. sideways.  Opened mine and corrected, no parts damaged.  Awesome kits.   ;D ;D

Juan, nichenson: You might want to inform Wingnut Wings via e-mail. Maybe they have the chance to intervene and avoid that fault with the next production batch!

Sent Dave an email informing him of what was happening.  Hopefully they will correct in future runs although I am sure many kits have gone out this way.

My camels arrived today from Lots of Models. I agree with Bo and others, it doesn't look like it any warping/damage was caused by the odd packaging of sprue D.

Ahh...you beat me to it!  A local friend of mine and I went together on an order to get the free shipping .
Already shipped.  Got to love Sprue Brothers.

I envy you, lucky Americans  >:(
Just checked, shipping to Poland is a ridiculous 70 USD...

huh - i do have an order with Weta myself and still have not heard a thing - strange. Might have to cancel those credit card charges out - pretty frustrating when the official distributor still does not have product to ship while other shops are on their second delivery of stock....

This really has become rather unpleasant. If I recall correctly the Official date is Mid March for WETA and other distributers that chose to have the kits shipped by container. I am currently trying to cancel my WETA order since I got one from Sprue Brothers. In the end though time doesn't matter all that much. I have 4 other builds in progress  :-[

I just ordered my Ships Camel from Metro Hobbies in Victoria, Australia, they offered free shipping for orders over $100 and they have the Camels in stock.

Yeah - I was able to get a Camel through the alternative shops as well so its not so much that i have to have the Camel NOW that I ordered from Weta, but it just strikes me as not a particularly good recommendation to use Weta in the future? Its like "order from Weta if you are in no rush at all and dont mind getting your kits last" sorta thing?
