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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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 email@example.com for further details.
