Hi, its me again lol I know so many issues...
So I ordered a model from Italy and was notified it was shipped on 1/29/2015. However, the status I see online is still "Processed through sort facility in Italy" after a week later. I contacted the seller and they said they would contact the post office and get back to me. Shortly later they said my package is still sitting and waiting to be loaded onto the flight to be transported to the US. Then last Thursday they said it had finally departed and was on its way to me. But I havenot seen any new updates as of today. It still says "process through sort facility in Italy"... Am I being panic too soon? Anyone been through this before and what was the outcome?

Your model is in USA's customs.... The tracking won't update until it clears customs. I've got 3 models inbound with the same issue. 3 different sellers, all shipped through DHL. I had one from Japan that took 3 weeks to update. It just said processed through the airport.... then once it cleared customs, I had it in two days.

Yep. Customs is in NYC and right now is snowing like hell in NY so that's the likely reason you haven't got an update

HA! Lucky you don't live in Belgium...3 separate packages of mine from China and the US sat for over a Month and a half and didn't move until I made an official complaint! Then one of my models was opened, un-screwed and left off of it's display base where the sunroof was broken out..literally done in Belgium  by CUSTOMS(their tape was even wrapped around my model). So, their solution, sue the sender..I am soooo Friggin' pissed..and they charged me taxes!!! :mad2:  In Texas, I would've had my models in under 7 days from China! :bawling:

Well exactly 30 days and it finally showed some movement this morning... 10 minutes after I gave up and bought another one :gaah: ...My other one processed through customs on 2/4/15 and nothing since? I have 5 other models in transit from Germany... I wonder if they'll be held up like this as well?

My second model came today. It cleared customs on 2/4 and wasn't updated until yesterday, when it got to my local post office on 2/19. It's been opened and badly re-taped, but no damage. I guess customs hand checked it, and then displayed it for a week or two? :gaah:  I've still got four in transit... hopefully they will all turn up safely eventually.

I still want to order one more custom model from Germany, plus I've got two being made... after that, I hope not to order very much internationally.

One thing horrible w usps is their tracking system..most of the time are slow and not up to date...only the price are cheaper compare to other shipping companies...

anyways I am glad yours is moving along...
