Oh my. Sounds like Aviation Retail Direct. If they have it in stock and ship it, no email, no tracking number, nothing.
I recently ordered a United 757-200 1:200 Battleship (Made in 2016, Long sold out) because they said they had "one in stock"
I ordered it only to be told I would have to wait a month because they "ordered" it knowing full well theres no inventory left. Thankfully my PP wasn't charged and I will be preventing further dealings with ARD...
