Or as you have more than one board for your project, build one and look at the other as a reference ;)

So there's a slight problem with posting this stuff with cases as royalmail don't seem to do the package size overseas (I checked on this before and sure they did!) But this means that all orders will have to go parcelforce which is knocking £40 basically :( . This is cheapest post without tracking. With tracking it has to go UPS and about £5 more. I looked on parcel2go, but there really isn't anything much cheaper anyway.

EDIT:
This is also a problem to ship boards, as the boxes I am using (even after cutting them down all feking day) still are to big for small parcel. But the board itself is small parcel, so I am going to have to re-think all this as otherwise everyone overseas will be knocking £40 postage :roll:

I have managed to re-pack the boards up. Basically it ended up the boards sandwiched between 2 card sheets (with bubble wrap). I had to get the length down to 48cm as the post limit is 50cm... (the boxes I had made ended up at 51cm somehow :( ), so its taken 2 days to chop stuff up and package some orders that way.. as the boards are 45cm wide this isn't easy to pad out much.. It was either that or postage prices started to jump from like £25 to £60!

Anyway, those who had payment emails over the past 2 days (And paid) your order will (hopefully, if I can get to the post office before 10am!) be posted out in the morning.

All remaining orders I will start packing up early next week. Postage emails will be going out all day monday as I pack and weigh items. Paid ones will hopefully get shipped Tuesday.

A lot of boards got shipped out this morning. Its possible some UK people may even get them early next week. Tracking has been sent out for all posted packages. I am going to try and get the remaining orders packed and shipped early next week.

All remaining orders have been packed today. All payment emails have been sent out. I am still waiting on a few people... There are some people who did double or triple orders where I have not sent payment emails because of postage paid in my store items covers the cost anyway.

Packages will be sent out tomorrow :)
