Please note: I will not ship built models, they will not last the trip without being broken, no matter how well you pack them. I would prefer you look at the built model before you purchase. 

Points to note:
Shipping Charges are based on - Weight, Size, Location and Value.
All orders over $50.00 will require a SIGNATURE on arrival (See below)
Insurance will also be required with orders over $50.00 - We recommend insurance with any orders you make.

Due to the high price of postage, it has now forced VPMT to push this "insurance" due to the number of items that have been lost 
due to Australia posts and other international postal services being unable to deliver the mail correctly.
Please don't complain about shipping costs, complain to your postal Service. 

Many international customers complain about Shipping cost from Australia. Before you complain about shipping costs trying ordering stuff from Europe and the US it, costs us a small fortune to get items delivered to Australia, so don't complain until you look in your own backyard.  

If you don't want it sent via registered post "Signature" please contact me to discuss.
If you don't want registered post and the item doesn't arrive due to the postal service losing it, VPMT will not be held accountable nor refund the price of the item.

All items posted within Australia will have a tracking number, this doesn't mean they won't lose the item, again VPMT will not be accountable for the loss nor refund the price of the item. 

** Minimum shipping charge is $12.00 within Australia.

Australian Orders: If you require the item in a rush, please be advised that the best method of postage is Express post,

usually, overnight. This method is expensive, you can ask for a quote.

Delivery times vary for State to State (Australia), generally about a week in a majority of cases.

All orders are shipped via Australia Post, orders will be processed and shipped only after the payment is completed.  VPMT dispatches parcels twice a week.  

Without exception all orders need to be signed for and cannot be left unattended. If no one is present at the delivery address the order will

be transferred to your local Post Office for your collection.

  *** If you live in the Sydney area, I can arrange to meet you at a central point or arranged location. 

For international, depending on shipping method could be anything up to three (3) months.  Please note: VPMT is not responsible for any additional chargers your country imposes on your order, such as Import taxes, customs duties and all other charges your order may incur entering your country.      

 Boxes to send to VPMT

There are many sources for free boxes in Australia and I guess in many countries around the world, can be obtained mainly from retail outlets such as Bunnings etc, which are perfect for shipping.  Remember to larger the box, the higher the cost of shipping.

For many of the larger and odd shape kits, there are no boxes that would fit them.  Want you need to do is wrap them in bubble plastic wrap then cut up a box and make tailor make your box to fit.


To minimise box / kit damage and loss of parts, my recommendations are as follows: 

1. Always use a thin rubber band around each kit "not too tight as it would damage the box " This will always stop loose parts from falling out into the packing box. For high valued kits place the contents of kit into a self-sealing bag. This is done to most of kits purchased from VPMT. 

2. Work out how many kits you are sending and pack them neatly into the packing box to minimise space, fill empty spaces with newspaper, and foam balls, be sure you use non-staining, as the colour from the packing material will transfer on the kits box and devolve the kit. 

3. When you finally get to taping the box for shipping, ensure you tape up all of the seams and corners, this will ensure any loose bits will remain inside the shipping box.
