I received an update from ABU on June 11 saying the Fabine's were delayed to mid/late July. We're not quite there yet but I was wondering if anyone else has seen an update since then? At this point I don't even remember how many I ordered. (bag of 8 I think?)
Hope they're worth the wait. Though they're probably not going to be any better than say doubling up a bambino.

The ETA on the Fabines has gotten a little more vague recently on ABU, so I went to the manufacturer's website (Buntewindel) and got an update. ABU is claiming mid to late July. Buntewindel is saying late August. (that's when ABU will get them, not when we will) So I'm betting on early to mid September for my delivery.
Last time I went looking for info I found that the ship carrying the product had engine trouble, was found to not be easily repaired, and was sent to another port for unloading, which accounted for the initial delay. They then decided to repair it instead of unloading it onto another ship, hence the additional delay. I've seen pictures of these engines, they're the size of three story houses and have catwalks around the outer perimeter, they remind me of those massive dump trucks that way.
