Shipping

UK SHIPPING

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.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING

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.

I have built several vintage kits although still a beginner . The conquest kit was probably not one of the best I have built there were several discrepancies in size of balsa and plan discription and took a fair amount sanding and alterations . The kit could do with a description or plan of sequences or at least a photograph. The lazer cutouts took a lot of alterations to get anywhere like a good fit . Advice for any newbies you will need plenty of sandpaper and small files .

Having built a good number of these lovely little models from the original Keil Kraft kits, it was a great experience to have another one on the building board. The plan comes with a comment that the kit is based on the original hand drawn plan and the original sized parts (which were die-cut). This does result in a little trimming of some of the parts to get a perfect fit as you would expect, but generally the model went together very quickly & easily. The balsa selection is excellent, with nice straight hard wing spar, but slightly softer leading edge to assist the final sanding. Any one who has built a couple of models from the old style kits will find no problems building this. The quality of the laser cutting is superb. Many thanks for a great kit and a nice trip down memory lane!

Looks like this model missed quality control laser cuts were of wrong size matching up with wrong size balsa spars as described in the plan . Took a lot of alterations to complete the model with no diagram /basic instructions or photo of the Glider .
