You may notice a large variance in the cost of shipping some of our products. Sometimes a ship model that may be
a few extra inches larger may cost significantly more to ship because of the shipping container size
classifications. Recent increases in shipping rates have affected our shipping prices.
We ship every day and try to use the safest and most reliable carriers. Most orders are sent signature required
for your protection. If you have a problem with your order, please follow our return policy below to expedite the
handling of your claim.
Shipping, packaging and crating affects the shipping price greatly. Many of our tall ships are so complicated to
rig that they are shipped fully assembled with the masts standing and are crated in large wooden crates to protect
your investment. Most sailboats, Yachts and Speed Boat models are over packed in foam with foam pellets or double
boxed. If you have a question about a particular model please e-mail us and we will answer promptly
It is very labor intensive to inspect and package each military model. We take every precaution to ensure your
model arrives on time and in excellent condition.
We are proud to say we have a very low percentage of models are returned from damage claims - a testament to our
quality packaging and crating.
Your satisfaction is our number one goal!
