Micron R/C will be closed for the Christmas/New Year break from Tuesday 18th December through Tuesday 1st January. The last day for posting before Christmas will be Monday 17th December. Orders may be processed sporadically during the close but we cannot guarantee that any order placed after 3pm on Monday 16th December will be dispatched before Wednesday 2nd January.

We use the Paypal shopping cart to handle all online orders. Prices in the shopping cart are displayed without VAT and this is added, if required, at checkout when the delivery address is known. The current VAT rate is 20%.

UK Orders

Our standard postage method for small packets sent to UK destinations is 1st class 'signed-for' (previously known as 'recorded') which currently costs £5.76 (£4.80 + VAT). Orders with a value over £75.00 will be sent using 'Special Delivery' and the post/packing charge is £9.60 (£8.00 + VAT). Orders with a value under £30.00 will be sent using standard 1st class and the post/packing charge is £4.44 (£3.70 + VAT). Orders containing only a few small items that can be sent via the 'Large Letter' service and we will refund the excess postage cost via PayPal. Alternatively, you can send us an email with a list of the parts you wish to order and we will create an invoice with the exact postage cost.

International Orders

As we use currently use the basic Paypal shopping cart and their method of calculating post/packing charges, the UK rates are also applied to international orders. This mostly works OK but orders containing large and/or heavy items will almost always cost more to send, please see Shipping outside the U.K. for details.

International shipping of model kits can be very expensive when the size of the box exceeds the maximum for airmail (60cm length). In this case we will contact you to discuss shipping arrangements - the postage charge can often be minimised by repacking the kit to fit within the 60cm length restriction.
