In our webshop we sell collectable diecast and plastic aviation miniatures, mainly in the scales 1:500, 1:400 and 1:200. We only sell to private collectors and not to companies. Prices always include VAT for customers inside the European Union.
Latest coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) update
It will probably take a long time before all COVID-19 problems are over. Our thoughts are with the people needing extensive medical care.
We are up and running. Receiving parcels from us is not a risk, we are healthy and the virus can survive only a short time outside the human body.
Due to a lack of commercial flights we currently can't send parcels to most non-European countries. But we CAN ship to Australia, Canada, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, UAE, and the USA. Customers in other non-European countries can extend their reservations 5 extra times (16 weeks).
Almost every day we get the question when we can ship to their country again. Please understand that we don't know, as soon as we know it will be announced here.
Please note that delays are to be expected for all shipping methods. Especially to the USA and Canada shipping takes very long, currently 4 to 6 weeks. As we have only a few mail parcels to send, we will send mail parcels only twice a week. DPD and UPS parcels are sent three times a week, as usual.
Update 19 June: We can now ship again to Australia, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, New Zealand, Thailand, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates! Due to the shortage on cargo space we had to increase the shipping rates for these countries. Also shipping may take longer than usual.
