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%.
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.
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.
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.
