To buy a typical NG 757 from the USA to UK is, for example, Model cost $45 Shipping $24 UK Import Taxes $14 thats $83 (Note some shipping rates are high as $43)

Thats about 67 UKP (XE.com) Ebay conversion is typically higher. For a typical UK price to buy UK 39.95
But in the case of some Manufacturers particularly AC, the few limited UK issues disappear fast, leaving a quantity in the States at a disproportionate high cost

Example is A319 British Airways retro BEA. I'll be fine with the Gemini version thank you. Not all of us have a bottomless pit to buy models as soon as they are released.
