It's a very good online store even for me being "across the Pond". Have already ordered a kit the F-15 Hasegawa for damn near nothing, now I'm about to get the M1A1 That ScooterJR built. Hannants was the cheapest I could find even with the postage. Would have liked to find it at Boystown since they give a discount but they did not carry it. So a big  for Hannants from me

Hannants are a bit like Creative - much too expensive for me, and their website search facility is very clunky to use.

They carry one of the largest ranges of stuff for the modeler in the UK its just their prices which put me right off.

The beauty of on line shopping is the ease that we can find and compare costs. Hannant's tend to sell pretty much RRP but do have some good discounts now and again. Not the greatest fan but are tops for Eduard brass and masks in price (usually) and the fact that postage is free. However, they are first in range and choice.

Not for me I'm afraid....I prefer the personal service from the likes of Modelsrgo, Wonderland models or Modelsforsale..  another good one is UMM-USA.com all Contacts named John so I don't have to recall their names.. and great service from all four.

In all fairness, the UK buyer should know that Hannants deducts UK VAT on sales going outside the EU. They also p&p using Royal Mail's Small Packet Int.Air Mail. I'm not saying others don't, but...you often have to ask.

When I asked Hannants, Peter simply answered "Is's the law". That impressed me!

Btw, on other sites they have threads like : What did the postman deliver..." and often I read complaints about the buyer having to pay VAT + fee and other times thumbs up/ hand clapping when the delivery from outside the EU went through without a hitch. I have never heard the buyer site/mention the limit; I believe it is £150; but please check that out for yourself.

Hi Arn,

In the UK the limit has recently been dropped to just £15.00 !!!!! You are then charged the goods type tariff typically 4.9% plus VAT at 20 % then the Post Office charge a minimum of £8.00 to "collect" the VAT for HM Revenue and Customs. This can be challenged and asked to be invoiced seperatly as by law the Post Office cannot delay delivery of the mail for any reason so by holding goods until this fee is paid the are in fact breaking the law.VAT is charged on total paid INCLUDING what you paid a non EU supplier for delivery!!!! However the UK government look after their own and if you had a private aircraft and brought goods back from outside the EU you can in fact bring back £350 of goods without paying duty which is a bit unfair!!!!

That looks very precise and concise presented, jayjay1964! It should be entered as a separate thread/topic, so it is more readily available when the question comes up again.

The next tier/limit is for receiving 'gifts' from abroad in the UK 'tax-free'. I seem to recall £350?

I'm fortunate though to have friends in the UK and US, who receive and send goods on to me if they exceed the 'private' limit. If I travel abroad for more than 24 hours, I can bring back goods for a value of £1100 (NOK 10 000) of non alcohol, tobacco or cosmetic goods 'tax-free'.  

I realize I was in error mentioning £150 (stupid me, I was thinking Norwegian kroner). We used to have to include the postage in the calculation, but that has now been omitted; that would often entail us (non EU members to pay VAT (Norw, 25%) twice.

I think this has been a good exchange of information, jayjay1964, thank you!

I gave Hannants a 10 as I drive down to the the North London Store and buy my xracylics and Tamiya paints from them, they also sell micro set/sol/clear ect;ect and Tamiya extra thin over the counter
I get on great with the staff, mainly coz he's got an awsome BSA Motorbike from way back when, and he supports Chelsea like me.

and for the size of the shop they have a surprising amount of Decals and resin on sale in store, I can spend more time in the shop than in the RAF Musium next door.

Pricey but fair.
