I have ordered from this site. I am in Canada though, so I cannot speak for international shipping. Everything has always come packaged well and haven't had any issues. Items have always been sent out in a timely manner.

On that note, everything is in US pricing - including shipping. The ability to change the price to different countries (like CAD dollars), is like it says .... just an idea. It must be updated on the sites end, and not automatically so don't be surprised if there is a difference from what you pay to listed price (as your credit card company determines current exchange etc).

Canada post in general is fairly expensive for any type of shipping.

Any questions I'd contact the seller. He's always responded pretty quickly regarding any of my questions.

Airplane Replicas have a good reputation for reliability and Zareth takes great care with packaging. This is all fine if you live in Canada but international shipping by Canada Post kills any deals for me, plus we get customs charges slapped on packages arriving in UK from US and Canada, unless customs declaration says less than £15 GBP. Guess that might not be an issue in India?

Thanks a lot for the replies !.


Definitely Canada Post shipping is way expensive !.

I am looking at paying 45$ just for 2 models ...
What an amount to pay for getting a model which is unavailable everywhere else

Plus yes definitely Customs is a huge issue for us in India but thankfully
They are overburdened with so much work that we get our models marked as a gift and under declare them so that they pass without paying the customs ...

Otherwise they'll slap 40% tax on just seeing Made in China there ..
But they are really good with sitting on you packages ...
Thankfully haven't happened ever, I guess that's an upside of this hobby in India that they aren't aware of it and they think these are toys !

And I think I'll go ahead with that order ..

Thanks again Guys

regards
Karan

Canada Post's international shipping is ridiculous.

You can't blame a dealer, because Canada Post takes everyone to the cleaners!!
