Interesting, did they have in stock or is your order on 'back-order' status?

I have used Hannants the past eight years, and my packages are always dispatched within 24-48 hours after the order has been placed.

As a matter of fact, placed a order last week Tue evening (after close of business), it was posted on Wed morning....arrived in Abu Dhabi today.

Other option have you considered masking it and spraying the markings?

I don't think the problem lies with Hannants. I think it's good old SA post office which at best is hit and miss. I'm still waiting for my B-58 decals from Caracal in the USA after 8 months. They're either lost or someone thought that there was cash in the envelope. Swines #-o

Just contact Hannants, via e-mail and ask on which date the package was dispatched, and the tracking number.

I have all that. It took two months to reach JIMC, been sitting there since. My previous order from Hannants also took 3 months.

Mavdecals can make some up for me. I just need the correct sizes for 1/32. Can someone please help out with that?

You can find the measurements of the different German insignia in this site:

http://www.luftarchiv.de/index.htm?/flu ... nungen.htm

You just have to accept the declaration on the first page. You might have to scroll down to see the tick box.

This has to do with German law and the sensitivity of the swastika in Germany, which by law is forbidden to display on other than historic photos.

The site is in German, abut the measurements are international fortunately.

Hey Drifter,

Have you tried The Aviation Shop?

Yes, none in 1/32 scale. I got some from Mavdecals, and ironically the ones I ordered from Hannants arrived the same day.
