    Maybe that will change now since a trade agreement has been signed.

    I don't think so, I've been buying things from US for years. It's a business decision mostly.

    Either they do not want to handle the fulfilling or they ha distribution contracts that block them (which is probably the case).

    It's sad as I had made a pretty substantial cart

    Gotta get another friendly TRF member to receive the package and re-ship for you... I'll bet someone would do it.

    I would love to but special considerations at home would prevent me. I'll bet if you put out a request on Yard Sale or Watering Hole someone would take you up. I mean, I don't know for sure but there's a good chance.

    I'd be happy to ship it to you. I have done it in the past for other hobby friends (slot cars and trains). Just PM me and we can work out the details.

    I tried this once for a car part it went terribly wrong.
    The company started by giving me a quote of 70$ shipping fee. Which was acceptable so I paid.


    Then the next day they told me they had to re-box it for proper shipping 6$

    Then cancelled the shipping and raised the fees to 300$ because of the new box size.

    Then after a week of trying to get my point, had to make them send back the part to the store.

    Wasted 2 weeks and 40$ and my mind

    Well I picked up my boxes today and also received a number of free rubber band gliders. My three little girls each got one and we had a blast in the backyard today flying planes...thanks Estes!

    I originally ordered on the Holiday Sale: Astron Explorer, Honest John, Odyssey, Red Flare. Instead of Honest John which got me interested in the sale, I received the Expedition! While a cool kit, I was disappointed in not getting the Honest John. I contacted Estes about the discrepancy and they sent me an Honest John and told me to keep the Expedition! Way cool!!! Estes is the best!!
