Having distant relatives overseas tends to bring you unexpected surprises. Like today when I went to get the mail and found a notice of parcel delivery. Having no clue what it was I went to the post office to get it. What I got was a 12 kg package the size of a PC.

First thing I did was read the stickers to see where it's from. Turned out to be one of my aunts.

After peeling off the trash bag wrapper I came upon a cardboard box with Cyrillic writing on it.

When I opened the box I discovered that it was full of what at first glance looked like flyers.

Closer inspection revealed they were actually model car parts with instructions.

I am guessing this is the main instruction sheet that also shows what this is suppose to be. A GAZ M20 Pobeda! This thing has got to be at least 1/12 scale.

After doing some research I think this is it. http://pobeda.deagostini.ru/index.html

1/8 scale Russian model. I guess the company sells parts biweekly along with a magazine. There are total 100 magazines. I think I only got half of them. Perhaps I should expect another package?

That was definitely a pleasant surprise.
