Good question. Still don't know the status of those L1011s from May.

Are you referring to the Las Vegas sands and tap Portugal? I believe NG have released them last month

A positive sign is the disappearance of the pervious months release from their website. The website is now only showing the June releases which usually means the "hints" follow on shortly after...

Not Las Vegas sands,

the ATA, TAP, and LTU.

They are all still on Waffle's website listed as pre-order

I believe all of them have had photos published but I'm not sure if they've been released as they're not in my collecting criteria.

The ATA I have ordered, and should be in stock by tomorrow or Monday. That from the retailer I mainly use.

I understand that the June 2020 models were shipped earlier this week to the retailers, hopeful that the July 2020 "hints" will be available over the weekend if not before, to quote NG Model, it will be a "colourful" release!

Getting stuff out of China and Hong Kong is still proving to be logistically difficult, I gather. Whether or not that's the problem here or partially, I've no idea.

I don't think there are any actual standards for when manufacturers post hints or releases, even though they always ostensibly label releases by the month.

same, but my retailer told me the box that had them went missing somewhere between China and the US. They ship with fedex and the last scan was in China I think

Think NG typically publish releases around the 10th of every month

Yeah I ordered stuff from fantasy wings and theyve not been able to post it as the Hong Kong post have apparently not been open. Thankfully with air routes resuming there is alot more cargo space.

Hong Kong post is operating, I had a package from Hong Kong arrive yesterday by EMS speedpost (tracked airmail). It was posted on the 30 June so a respectable 7 days or so of which most of that time was spent faffing around between post depots here in the UK(!) and as an added bonus no ransom (customs charges) to be paid...

My point being that anyone that relies on any sort of consistency with manufacturer announcements and releases is likely to be disappointed.

True point.

Everyone loves NG, but they are particularly unreliable when it comes to announcing releases, and then getting them to retailers in a predictable or punctual timeframe. About the only manufacturers they're more reliable than, are Panda and JC. Who both seem to make announcements with no light at the end of the tunnel.

GJ and AC have much more reliable schedules, and timeframes to expect having your order in hand, after their release announcements.
