    Well, sheeeeeeeiiiiiiit....

    Latest is that when I entered my address into their thingo, it condensed it for some reason, cutting out the suburb. Now my address is a P.O box, and the post code narrows it down to only two post offices in the same suburb. So technically not a complete address. But there's absolutely no reason Aust Post couldn't email both post offices to see which one it goes to, especially since if it was given to the right person at the delivery centre that I work at, they would recognise the P.O box series as being one or the other without even having to contact them. And of course if it was given to someone at my delivery centre, where I work, it's almost certain they would say "Hey, that's for Danny!". So now it's MY time to bitch about Aust Post! I'm going to get the manager to check it out tomorrow, see if he can't give someone a reaming. It won't help me though, since it was technically an incorrect address, and therefore I will still have to wear the cost of postage.

    I retract all the bad vibes towards Tamiya Shop (although it would be nice if they fix up that address thingo). I emailed them to say as much too. I am at least calm about having to pay now. Shitty that I do though because as a postie, I am constantly given smaller parcels with incomplete addresses to see if I can match up a name, sometimes holding them for a week, looking through for instance a hundred or so names in a set of units each day because someone forgot to put the unit number on, yet some dopey contractor didn't even give it one seconds thought, for a choice of just two destinations and immediately transferred to a branch that doesn't even have anything to do with anything! And then the dopes at that branch didn't put two and two together and say "Hey, this is the post code for Stones Corner/Greenslopes, not East Brisbane."

    But waddaya do?

    Oh, love the collection, Savage! Beside the Scorcher, I also coveted Vanessas Lunchbox back in the day. And I think it was called Fast Attack Vehicle?

      Wow Danny, what a PITA saga you have had to endure It'll all be forgotten one day though mate.

      Savage, awesome collection mate, bloody awesome. Many of the vehicles in you cabinet I had at some stage BITD. Shame they all got busted up and tossed at some stage. The Subaru brat was my fav, then the wild one.

      I just bought my 3 boys 2wd buggies for Christmas and they have been having a blast. New era cars, not Tamiya. ESX Boost buggies. They are very cool. Fast, agile and strong. They have taken a beating and keep on coming. I just picked up today (posted t me from Tamiya) A Sand Rover for my Daughter who has been upset that the boys got a car and she didn't. Even though she "hates"boys toys, a RC car would be OK

      Don't suppose anyone with some airbrush skills would like to girly this white plastic shell up for her?

        Yeah, slowly starting to get the vibe back to buy one. Will get it off ebay this time though. At least I know the address will be correct! Just waiting on Auspost to get back to me about compensation. That could be a while

          Just got a letter from the ombudsman. They are not going to pursue it. You may recall how I always used to defend Aust Post when people complain about them. Well, **** them! I'll look after them as much as they looked after me...

              Well, I've got my eye on a new toy (full size) so I think I'll sell all the spares I bought including the body. I'll put something up in the for sale section, if anyone here is interested.

              Here:
