JMHO
NP does no extra boxing or extra padding. They ship their planes in the same box they come in from China. All they do is collect the extra profit from their inflated shipping charge, pay the cut rate shipping charge they get from the shipper, stick a label on it and kick it out the door. That's how my Dynam T28 came to me and with a big dent on the side of the box. Never again with NitroPlanes.

Should have read this forum first

I placed an order for a F6F yesterday. I nearly had the big one when I was quoted $40 shipping to South Carolina. That order was promptly cancelled. I should have read this forum first. What a rip off

Several of us around here have been buying their Tech One foamies this year. We normally buy in quantities of two or three which really helps out on the freight. But one thing I have noticed is they will run a "sale" on just about every kind of holiday. Normally 10 to 15 percent off. The trick is to wait until about one hour before the sale goes off and then they throw free shipping in on top of that. That's when you want to buy them.
