I have two orders on 'that' auction site which i am told will be here by the end of the week, but after that, i wont be ordering online unless the delivery is guaranteed; if all fails (until after the virus has passed) at least i have a few kits to get on with in the meantime. Please everyone, stay safe; stay IN!😷

Im not planning on any trades yet Mike. However may we update current threads in the wanted section, if we want to add or remove items that were looking for or have found ?

Well done Mike - excellent lead. As you say, time for a lot of building and that rare thing called ‘stash reduction by construction’ !! I look forward to see everyone when we come out of the other side of this!

Stay well - everyone

He would be good at that as he does not do any real work but takes the glory

A sensible and responsible move, Mike.

 

Between January and March for the last couple of years I've been selling some of the stash on a certain site, to supplement the reduction in business income over the winter months. Despite still having stuff to list, I stopped selling a few weeks ago - prompted in no small part by our postman handing over a couple of registered parcels (business purchases), and telling me I wasn't allowed to sign for them on his PDA...

 

At the end of the day, this is a hobby, not life-and-death - but venturing out to either send someone something, or expecting somebody to do so to send something to you could be. If not for you, then possibly somebody else. There's nothing hobby-related out there - kit, accessory, tin of paint, tool or reference book - that's worth risking anyone's life over, so my view is that for the time being, none of us needs to be buying or selling anything from anywhere...

Well done chaps, wise decision 😉

I can still sell personal stuff as I just post it through the business and our post is collected.  At the moment Royal Mail are operating as normal (apart from not collecting signatures) but local delivery offices may have the odd staff shortage, so expect things to take a day or two longer in the post.

 

thanks

Mike

Well done Mike ..Good decision . I told a seller on ebay before the lock down started no rush ,stay home I can wait .

 

Everyone take care ,keep safe ,use safety precautions . Gloves , mask ,carry and use correct strength hand sanitiser . Keep the 6 foot (2M) distancing from others . Do not let shop staff touch your Credit/Debit card , don't use cash … coins are the devil !

Alcohol based , 700ml per Ltr . Kills 99.9% of germs . One brand is Purell , doctors and hospitals use it . If you can get it . We bought all this kind of stuff in January , knew what was coming . there are plenty of other sanitsers about containing the same alcohol content and kills 99.9% etc.

Perhaps the strapline at the top of the page needs to be changed to:

 

"Keeping modellers apart since 2020"
