The shipping charge was £25.00, which added to the £116.66 cost of the model brought it up to £141.66 all-up, or NZ$327.44 (that's the sum which showed on my bank statement).
Not exactly cheap, but reasonable for the size and quality of the model.
I was rather blown away by the size of the carton which was handed to me by the courier though. A 1:72 scale Sunderland is a rather large beast and the box it came in was also a big beast, but the outer carton they packed it in (surrounded by air-bag packaging to cushion it) was huge. However, it arrived in perfect condition.
Now if only they could bring out a same-scale diecast model of an Empire 'Boat. I'd be in like a shot, no matter which aircraft it was, although I'd prefer it to be either S.795 G-ADHL “Canopus” or S.886 ZK-AMA “Aotearoa”. Even better would be a set of both of those 'boats....the first Empire 'Boat to exist and the last to be cut-up.
