Interesting the seller won't ship outside the US as noted on a few of them (I.E. Air Canada A340) Really what's the point if you have the boxes and won't ship?

Some very nice models there, especially the Tu154. Very rare in such clean condition. It is a shame that the guy won't ship to Europe, his decision I guess.

Roberj, dont you regret it not buying from the US, and since its a Atlantic Models look at how they ship their models??, poor, very poor shipping quality.
I know what Im saying, 8 years ago my Atlantic Models Swissair B747-300 arrived here with broken engines....
Not enough padding under the models, and since they're one solid piece( wings and stabs dont detach from fuselage)...nothing beats Space Models and Pacmin packaging!!!

Maybe your experience of one model, but I have had over 20 models shipped from Miami to London and never a problem. Atlantic Models have been great. Their boxes are very good. So, if case others are wondering i'd not agree with the poster that his comment is a general experience.

Well, good for you, there are the lucky buyers and the not so lucky.
A $400 model still would have deserved a better/stronger boxing, which was not the case.and one experience was all it took.

Some years ago, I also had an Atlantic model arrive here in the UK with damage. It was a 1/72 Curtis C46 in Lufthansa colours. It had a crack running the length of the tail fin to fuselage join. I have to say that I wasn't impressed with the type of packaging used. I returned the model, and got a refund, I can't fault them on customer service. I did later order a BOAC DC7C from them, and it arrived in fine shape, luck of the draw I guess.
