I would have bought from the site normally, but he had a number of items listed for auctions prices well below retail, and didn't have those prices on his site, so I took a punt. Got the MU limited edition Dapol valenced A4 Quicksilver for less than 90 Euro including post. Almost 50 Euro off the website price, so hard to resist.

I doubt which site I used would have made a difference for the postage delays though, as they all seemed to be at the Canada Post end. Unless it was shipped by sea, of course, though the cost of shipping was more than what Hatton's charge, and orders from them have never taken more than two weeks.

Good news -- my parcel arrived today!  The Terrier looks great and runs well.

I guess I was spoiled with the ultra-fast service of the past. Usually these small parcels take only 4-5 business days but, in this case, it took just over 3 weeks.  I'm not complaining, just happy it's now here.

Thanks again for your feedback above.

Cheers, Rob
