Overseas Postage Rates

Flying Tigers post models to all destinations worldwide and we have collectors in every corner of the globe.  Our website should give a reasonably accurate illustration of postage costs during the ordering process, once you have included your destination address.  If you are unsure at any stage, or should you require further details, please contact us at sales@flying-tigers.co.uk

Airmail parcels are now charged volumetrically, which has obviously had an impact on prices.  Thankfully, our business volumes dictates that we can offer some attractive discounts on the standard rates to most destinations.

The catalogue software we use assumes that all models are in stock at the time of ordering and a cumulative shipping weight is applied for postage purposes. With regard to pre-ordered items, this will obviously be incorrect and we will simply charge the required level of postage for each parcel sent, unless a prior arrangement has been made. Please contact us on 01604 499034, or e-mail sales@flying-tigers.co.uk for further details.

Important Pre-ordering Notes

Flying Tigers will not take payment, or ask for a deposit when you place an order for a future model release (unless you pay using Paypal, which we have no control over).  Please Note that our shopping software cannot differentiate between stock and future items, which may lead to inaccurate postage quotes and additional postage charges, should separate parcels be required.
