This is an experiment to promote airliner modelling in New Zealand and will feature only kits that
a. are not available in NZ; and
b. I can source at a reasonable price from the manufacturer, OR
I have distribution rights to.
This website is set up for sale of decals. The postage system is based on the value of sales (see Postage and Packaging) and works well for decals. Kits are heavier and bulkier so this does not work well.
My clunky solution is to list the kit three times - for NZ customers, for Australian and South Pacific customers (as defined by NZ Post - www.nzpost.co.nz if you wish to check) and rest of the world. The kit price has been artificially raised for the second and third groups to cover the additional postage required.
Some small items have the Australian and South Pacific customers (as defined by NZ Post - www.nzpost.co.nz if you wish to check) and rest of the world combined and show as Overseas.
NOTE:In some cases Overseas is not offered - these are combos where the primary cost item is overseas sourced so it is cheaper for you to go to the manufacturer, local hobby shop or closer internet based shop.
I would be happy to field suggestions for other kit - decal combinations that meet the criteria above. If I get enough consistent requests I will try and source them.
Larger pictures of the decals can found on the appropriate web page.
I am NOT interested in sourcing single kits for customers - amongst other things this usually works out expensive as discounts usually only apply to bulk orders.
The Kiwi Resins CT4 and B170 Mk31 conversion kit options are back in stock - see below.
