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.

Reasonably easy to build but laser cutting was sketchy in places. I found the wing construction flimsy so reinforced with inter rib diagonal struts much improved the rigidity. I followed the dihedral instructions exactly but the finished model just looked wrong with TOO MUCH dihedral. So much so that I've ordered the smaller version to adjust the problem in my view. The Chipmunk does not measure up to other Vintage Model company warbirds I have completed.

Very nice kit that I’ve converted to RC 3 channel (AET). In this endeavour I’ve had to fully sheet the fuselage because it was just too weak to handle (kept putting a finger or thumb through a stringer) managed to finish it at 200g AUW running of a 12a ESC and 2s lipos.
