Unlike other shops we transport this model from the factory in China to our warehouse without using air freight. We love airplanes as much as you do, but air freight does have a huge negative environmental impact. In addition to this, air freight from China to Europe through Russian airspace generates revenue for the Russian regime. For obvious reasons we want to prevent this. Lastly, air freight is expensive so by using other means of transport we can offer models for a lower price.
The only advantage of air freight is that it's very fast. But we don't think this is more important than all disadvantages. If you reserve a model in advance you will be sure you can buy it from us. At a lower price, with less environmental impact and without indirectly supporting the Russian regime.
