How mail is sorted and why NOT to put models in envelopes.

Here's a link that shows SOME of the letter sorting machines. You can see some of the points that the minis will get crushed or lost in the machines.

Hope the link works for everyone.

That's just the BEGINNING of it, too, people.
The machines that your packages are sorted on? Fuggedabowdit!
If you're sending fragile things in the mail, you'd better package them accordingly. Your flimsy little box with carefully assembled models is not going to fare well when it's smashed between two 30 lb boxes at (what, kt?) about 35 mph!?

Lower rating? You ship first.

Give me a sense of humor Lord. Give me the grace to see a joke.

I think what this situation needs is some imagination.

Want my help with a BTR or backout? All messages sent/posted should be in CHRONOLOGICAL order. Otherwise, I just won't read it.

170 inches per second for letters.
Packages is faster than quick walking. 10-15 mph maybe.
