When i order the Mig-15 last year it cost $700 bucks in shipping
Got lucky with the Panther sister in -law brought in back from Australia with her for only $200 bucks for a over size box
Still with both kits being sold here in the U.S. at $1300 bucks the customer is still eating some of the shipping cost (Plane plus gear) $900 bucks
