Must have forgot here too. Mine wasn't much more than that either. Of course, looking at the tracking info, it only shows that it was turned in at the post office....nothing since

I've shipped quite a few packages via the post office in the past few years (but not as many as Carl ) , and I've noticed they don't update the tracking info very frequently. Don't panic - it'll get here.

The shipping provider is suppose to update the tracking every evening. But, you're right, sometimes they don't do that (the updates).....

Guess I'm just used to seeing the UPS updates. Of course, I did see a package was still sitting in a warehouse in California once when the package was on my front stoop.

Just a quick sidenote here: Now that my model is headed to Dallas, I've decided this evening
to get started on my SEMROC Apollo Little Joe - II kit. Will give me the practice on building the Apollo capsule with escape tower . Maybe if I do well with the capsule/tower build, I'll
get started on my Estes 1/70 Saturn 1-B I still have in the box.

I'm very disappointed with the final product but I've stuck a fork in it and called it done. It will wing it's way to Dallas tonight.

I'm off to other things now.

Looks better than mine Mario. Here's a few photos of mine before it went in the box.

Mario and Eagle3... I don't know what you guys are disapointed about - I think they look fabulous!

Nice work!

You haven't seen it up close...

I'd be happy if it were a flying model but not as a display model.
