Encore Albatros D.II 'Boelcke' on sale at Squadron.com
« on: January 21, 2017, 04:56:08 AM »
Greetings all;

Squadron.com is having another of their big sales. I just found the 1/32 Encore Albatros D.II 'Boelcke' on sale for $16.99 US. At that price I just bought another 2 for the stash. Just a heads up, I have no relation whatsoever. Wanted to pass along a good bargain. My apologies if this isn't the correct sub-forum.

Wow, their postage charges are HUGE!

Yeah $53 for postage to Austria. I'll give that one a miss.

Cheers

Yes for some reason Squadron postage rates outside the US are famously ridiculously high. (My hunch is that they simply don't want to bother with the hassle of international orders -- seems stupid, maybe -- but I know of other retailers in other market segments that do exactly the same thing.)

So this is a win for us here in the USA, not so much for everyone else...

Not even listed any more...  :o  Usually they post "In stock soon" when sold out.

    At that price it's little wonder they went so quickly, heck of a good deal! I don't use Squadron anymore as their shipping is far too "rich' for my wallet and the order normally gets snagged by Canadian Border Services resulting in Duty and Brokers fees, same as the present Wingnut Wings system out of Wa.
Cheers,
