No shipment from England but lots of trouble.

First I realized that the Plane is to large to get it out of the shop. There are two doors directly behind each other and the second door is slightly to the right. The ceiling there is very low.

I could however, get it upstairs, thru a narrow hallway and into the Hay-Room. The Double-Doors there are large enough to carry the Model thru them.

After a half hour Walk thru the Snow I then realized that the plane did not fit into the car. One hour and some detached non-detachable-parts later I could make it fit by bending the wings about 20cm upwards and putting the nose out of the codrivers window.

Was a rather cold drive home. Now I have to solder the antennawire back on and repair what has been damaged. Not much work thou.
