Most orders are shipped via Royal Mail’s Tracked 48 service.

For larger or heavier orders, we use UKMail/DHL to deliver your package on a Next Working Day service.

Shipping is free to UK Mainland addresses for orders over £30.00, otherwise we charge £6.00 for Royal Mail Tracked 48 parcels and £12.00 for UKMail/DHL Nest Working Day.


Smaller items

Items that fit within Royal Mail International Tracked Medium Parcel parameters (59cm x 17cm x 15cm weighing less than 2kg) can be sent to most countries outside the UK.

For example up to 3 of our smaller 18” wingspan kits can fit into one of these parcels.

A parcel like this currently costs around £14 to Europe and around £18 to send to the USA and will take up to 3 weeks to arrive. This is because Royal Mail hands over the parcel to the local Post Office service for your country who have to clear it through customs and then deliver it to you.

The Royal Mail tracking code also transfers over to the tracking for your country’s postal service.

Larger items

For items that do not fit within Royal Mail International Tracked Medium Parcel parameters, we use standard international couriers such as DHL, FedEx and UPS.

These companies use something called volumetric weights to calculate the cost of shipping.

For example, a Balsa Basics RC bundle kit that measures 102cm x 34cm x 16cm and weighs 2.5 kg is actually calculated at 14kg!

This makes these very expensive to send outside the UK - a large kit can cost nearly £40 to send to France.



great kit loved building this plane took me back to when my dad was showing me how to build balsa kits will be buying more kits

Building up the Eaglet was rather fiddly for arthritic hands,but well worth the effort,and I didn't look at the instructions . Vintage Model Co. is very customer comes first. I will be back for more. Thank you. Les Howard.

a super kit and extremely fast service im planning for rc for this one should be challenging but great fun

Paul Lovejoy

My first model for over 30 years and every bit as much fun as I remember it. The laser-cut parts are a huge advance on the old printed wood. The plan is high quality and very clear, although it helped to download building instructions from another website. Final weight prior to trimming is just over 60g, which seems pretty good and is a tribute to the wood selected by VMC. I am now hooked again, and will be back for more!
