Shipping & Handling

All orders are sent by United States Postal Service to anyplace on earth.  Non-Priority orders are usually sent out within 48 hours unless we are away at a show or on vacation.  

Most plans sets are mailed in a manila catalog envelope so they don't have to be rolled or folded.  Material items will be mailed in a carton.  Orders for both plans and material items will probably get separated in the mail and could arrive a few days apart.

Delivery Overseas:  

We send all orders outside the USA by air mail. We are required to attach a completed customs form to all parts or kit order cartons for delivery outside the USA. Sometimes these orders can be delayed several weeks or more in clearing the destination Customs.  This usually does not apply to plans sets as they do not need customs forms.  Hardware orders from outside the U.S. exceeding $100 may be rejected unless insurance is purchased.  Contact us for an insurance quote.
