Yay! My Comms robots for my Tunnel Fighter Clanker units had arrived from Canada (I have opened the middle one):

Now, I knew I was going to have to pay VAT (£5-19) on the parcel but what surprised me was the £8-00 'handling charge' that the Royal Mail charged... making my order cost stack up to WAY more than the miniatures are worth.
This is a real shame because the miniatures are very nice.
I noticed another thing when I picked the parcel up... it rattled a lot. When I opened it, there was a nice lot of polystyrene in the box but there was no foam in the blisters so all the bits and bobs were rattling together like runes in a bag. I must admit to feeling a little bit disappointed about it but I guess that is the way some companies play it.
In other news... I have bent the next armature into shape. It is a coat hanger so it was tough going but I have to get my other commission out of the way so starting it is a good thing to do. It will be a very skinny cyclist, wearing Lycra and a cycle helmet. I expect to put the first blobs of putty on the frame tonight but I am too tired to do much more. Still... I have the house to myself at the moment so I can enjoy the peace before the noise arrives.
See you from the devil's shadow!
