Shipping & Handling
Shipping & Delivery
Shipping is determined by weight and destination. The US Postal Service is our preferred vendor for domestic orders. Shipping and handling charges are applied to the cost. See more under "Ordering" for handling time.
UPS Ground is only available for hazmat (hazardous materials as determined by shipping vendors-in our case usually paints/thinners/washes/etc.) items or orders including these items. For larger quantities, we choose the most economic shipping method and for smaller packages that include hazmat items Parcel Post (USPS ground) is used.
For book orders only you may select Media Mail. If you encounter difficulty selecting Media Mail, you may contact us to verify the charges (1 heavy book is approximately $5.00 Media Mail). You can send us a note if you have any concerns.
International Shipping: Due to the constant fluctuation of international shipping rates Victory Models has eliminated the flat service fee option and our items are now shipped using calculated rate pricing (weight vs destination). We will verify the weight of the package and refund as necessary (most likely for books or very heavy items that tend to require extra packaging material to prevent damage). We'll gladly send the shipping cost estimate before you make the purchase, just send us a message at VictoryModelsLLC@Gmail.com with the item(s) you are interested in and country. Restricted countries will be shipped via a trackable option only.
First Class International Airmail tracking is offered for limited countries and delivery can take 4 weeks or longer in some cases. If you wish to track your item, Priority mail is your best option. We reserve the right to apply Priority Mail with tracking to countries with challenging postal services. (You will be notified prior to this and your approval will be necessary or the order will be cancelled and your money refunded.)
Buyers are responsible for import duties, taxes, and additional fees that may be applied to the order by your import offices. Please consult with your country's Customs department for details on these fees prior to buying. We are prohibited from marking merchandise below value or marking items as "gifts."
For our customers overseas we will use First Class International Package Service or Priority International Services. An online purchase is consider a dutiable item and First Class International Flat Envelope for decals is not acceptable. Please note, on some international orders we may have to adjust your shipping cost. This usually happens when a few books (weight) are ordered and we will notify you first and await your approval for the adjustment before processing your order.
Finally, as most of you are now aware, all international orders must go air mail and any over 4 pounds in weight must go Priority Mail. Again, we will contact you beforehand to "ok" the order
