I'm very pleased with both sets although the cost made me think twice when I was informed of the shipping charge and then I thought of HMRC duties and taxes (which were a little less than I was expecting). But I don't smoke or drink so might as well spend my money on my hobby!

Yes I do have a few photos. I took some pictures of both framed sets for another collectSPACE member who asked me what they looked like while he was waiting for his order to be delivered.

I'll e-mail them to you. I'll try and send full size files but BT limit me to 25MB, however I have a set of reduced size files if I need to use some of these instead.

Let me know if you have any trouble opening or viewing them.

Regarding my previous post regarding cost, I paid the special discounted price for matched limited edition numbered sets offered to collectSPACE members when they were first announced and if I recall correctly made a useful saving on the retail price.

It's the shipping cost via FedEx that's a bit of a blow unless like Rick you are lucky enough to have family or friends in the US who can take initial delivery and then ship onto the UK.

Placed my order last night, confirmation email said about 30 days ship time. My thanks also to Peter for sending the photos that pushed me off the fence

Does anyone know if there is a delay in sending these out, i.e. a backlog, as I ordered mine on the 24/07/12 with confirmation email but not received it yet. Anyone else still waiting?

Thanks guys. I will just sit tight and wait for that big parcel to arrive, not that I am in a hurry as this has been bought for me as a Xmas gift so I can't have until then anyway.

Well, Christmas came a little early today, mine arrived this afternoon

Shipping carton is 36" x 31" and it barely--I mean barely--fit into the trunk of my little Honda...at first glance, I thought I might have to enlist a co-worker's SUV to get the thing home!

But they arrived unscathed, and they're terrific. The complete Shuttle set is just spectacular...kudos to artist Blake Dumesnil and everyone at Winco who put these together. If you're still waiting for yours, be patient. I very much doubt that you'll be disappointed.

Edit: As a point of reference for others awaiting their frame sets, mine is #701.

I absolutely love the complete mission pin set. I did find one thing wrong with it. At least on mine anyway. Under the mission 61C pin, Columbia is spelled wrong.

Absolutely correct! Same spelling mistake on mine which I think was shipped with the first batch of orders. Mine was No. 91 of the 3500 that were going to be offered for sale.

I would be interested to learn if this error was picked up during the production run and corrected.

Received mine about two weeks ago but not looked at it and not allowed to have it till Christmas as it is a present.

No idea about the spelling mistake but I don't think I will be to bothered if it is there on mine as I just can't wait to display it on the living room wall.

As I mentioned above, mine is set #701 and under the 61-C pin Columbia is spelled "Colombia," like the country. So if any correction was made, it was well into the production run.

Missus checked for me and mine is also spelt incorrectly, not sure what number it is but it is in the 700s. If this mistake is corrected in later productions do you think that will make ours more rare.

Mine has it too (094). Did anyone bother to tell them of the misspelling?
