Thod;

Glad the goody-bird finally landed at your door; cool stuff, eh?
So, you're going to use the PC as an excuse, are you? Well, at least it's a valid one.
Hey, it's YOUR time; don't let ME tell you how to use it.

Lupus;

I can empathize with you about 'the buck' now; last night, I got elected (read 'drafted!') as chapter president for the IPMS chapter here in Baltimore.
WHEN will I learn to STEP BACK when they ask for volunteers, not forward? :lol:

See ya, guys!

Jim

PS: If you see stuff from yansolousa or yansolo on eBay, they are GREAT! He did a torch wall section, a floor section with a campfire, and a customized 6" wall section with a fireplace/chimney and a fire in the fireplace; all items have an LED fire that works, and they are excellent.
The bidding can get rather steep, but I think they're worth it. IF you decide to go for any of them, you'll have to decide where your threshold stands for price.

Jim,
It's not a matter of taking a step forwards, but perhaps a step back :) I had a pal who was asked to step up to the plate as treasurer for a local professional society. His answer, rather than being no, as "yes, but only if no one else volunteers."

After that, they never looked for any other volunteers. And as such, the day before the next comittee meeting, he got a phone call asking him to turn up as nominated date as he was it......... :) Got to learn to step back before the question comes flying at you :)

With regards to yansolo stuff, the bidding is getting very steep. Did manage to pick up the fireplace at a reasonable price :) Not sure I can afford the other stuff at the current prices though :) But got to raid that piggy bank to see the balance :)

The rules are simple. Up to 18 pounds (approx. 35 dollars at the moment) it is free. But if you are above 18 pounds you will pay for the whole lot. Otherwise you will have to pay 17.5% of VAT plus a handling charge. For items >500 pounds or express mail like DF stuff this is fixed at 13.50 pounds approx. 26 dollar. Otherwise the fixed handling charge is 8 pounds (15 dollars). The 17.5% will be charged on all your items AND !! on the postage.
For the Lake Set I even paid the VAT for the free Lake pieces. They where listed at 12 dollar value.
My big fear therefore with the DOE was that I would pay handsomely as well for the 'free' figures.

If your packet is a gift then the trashhold for the free amount is doubled. And you don't pay VAT on the postage.

So for 2 DOE WA sets you start at 2*89 plus approx. 100 dollar for shipping and another 100 dollar of 'free' items if you preordered. Add 17.5% on the whole sum of this plus 26 dollar handling charge and in the worst case it can cost you up to one free DOE WA in charges (and a second DOE WA you already payed for shipping costs).

Thod, gee your customs are even tougher than ours! Man that sucks. You are getting slaughtered twice, with the shipping and then the slice for the government on top.

However, on saying that, when we do get hit with customs, it's a double hit. First we have the customs duty. But on top of that, our customs charges us for the privelage of them 'opening/checking' the items on the list. So, when we get hit, its a very large hit. THe last time work ordered some supplies from overseas, they were hit with a customs duty of about $ 100 plus a $ 50 customs charge for checking the items. And that was for an order of about $ 1000. Kinda sucky really.
