LOL! Don't tell my wife I didn't just order one set but ordered three sets... Dogs sets and farm animal sets for future builds. LOL I saw that dead animals I thought it was nice but little creepy. My wife will not approve it!

Do you think my Lady would love that set? Hell, there is a dead cat and that would be my doom showing it to her, rofl! But I love the sets from mantis in general and can imagine so much more animals they could do!
You should have the bird actually making a shxxxxxx deposit on the piling. Also, didn't noticed until the bird shot made it more prominent. Rope looks a little clean. What do you think? Good luck at the (in my best Ed Sullivan voice) "Big Shoe"
They finally arrived! Posting stuff from NZ or Australia to the States or Europe can take a while, I generally have a four week waiting time if my folks send stuff to my kids here in Belgium. I won't even get started on the tax customs puts on the stuff!! Glad you were able to get it all done before the show, good luck with everything this weekend mate and once again this is a really fantastic diorama! I feel gold coming along your way...if not in prizes a beer or two!!

Wow, Deaf, the birdy is in, looks way cool (first, after seeing the unpainted pinned figure I thought, hey, he sculpted the bird) and fits perfect in the scene. Those small add ons make it really and all luck on the show, have a beer or two and enjoy. And write down an article about it, with tons of pics. Harhar!
Nice to see the gull take its perch just in time Andy! Shipping stuff across the Pacific all comes down to basically 3 factors: 1) mode of shipping (surface vs. air) 2) size (weight/dimension restrictions affect #1) and 3) cost. Part of #3 is customs clearance and whethr or not you've pre-registered with US Customs for international shipments. If you haven't, then stuff can take longer to clear as a result and then make its way to you via the USPS.
For example, I got a package sent from Japan via Japan's post service and delivered by USPS to my door in less than a week...but the box was relatively small and I paid a couple of extra dollars for the faster service vs. slower service.
You can get anything sent anywhere overnight around the globe just about...but only if you're willing to pay for it.

Frank- LOL! There may be an article coming up... will share details when it is official. The show was great!!! Will post pictures... I am still crawling from the show and my youngest son is sick with fever at temp of 102 right now.
Bill- I am with you. The package is pretty small and almost flat. The seller was clever to fold the boxes flat and wrap the resin parts in bubbles wrap. I guess our government likes China better than most countries... LOL
Bob- Maybe I should enter it into MoM again just for fun? LOL
