Shipping methods, times and costs
We know that we are selling high quality scale models, so we use a high quality (and fast) courier service.
The fast and accurate service provided ensures that the package takes a minimum number of transfers during the transportation process. That means the best treatment for the goods, combined with our careful packaging.
After shipment, you will receive an email with the tracking information, so you can know where is your package at any time.
All shipments by courier are insured.
Another great advantage of shipping by courier is that in case of problems, the courier response is very fast.

For some areas of the world where a courier shipment may be too expensive, we offer also a certified airmail shipment, which is relatively slow but cheaper.

Shipping costs are determined by a package's weight, volume and the ship-to zone. They are optimized and automatically discounted depending by the amount of the order, so you always get a better service at a convenient cost.

Feel free to use our shopping cart, adding and removing items, and immediately see the shipping costs automatically calculated. Obviously the order will be processed only after you have specified your address and payment information,
and pressed the final "Submit Secure Order" button.

The arrival of your shipment is affected by some factors: product availability, payment method, shipping method.
If all items are in stock, packages are usually shipped out from our warehouse as soon as possible (normallly within 2-3 business days).
This would be delayed if an item was on back order, or if the order was placed over the weekend or on a holiday.

We are closed for holidays from 10 to 20 August 2016.   No shipments will be made in those days; however your order will be accepted and the items automatically reserved for you; the website is always automatically updated with the real stock availability.
As almost all items are produced in limuited series, we suggest to place the order as soon as possible to automatically reserve the models.

Typical courier delivery times:

Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland: 2 - 5 days

USA & Canada:  3 -4 days

Japan, Australia, Taiwan, Korea, Hong Kong: 3 to 8 days.


Items availability policy

The availability of any item is clearly indicated by one of the following annotations:

In stock!: the item is immediately available

Available very soon: it is a new item which will be in stock in about 7 days or less

Not in stock, but can be ordered: if you place an order for this item, we will get it in about 4-10 days

In any case, we will ship the order when complete (we don't ship the items of an order separately).


Our stock status is frequently updated every day, but the "in stock" annotation may not be true if the model was suddenly sold out between two updates of the website (it rarely occurs, however).

Also, if you order more pieces of the same item, the ordered quantity may not be totally available.

If one or more of the ordered models are not in stock, the models will be back ordered. If the expected delivery time is more then one week, you will be noticed by email so you may reply choosing between the following options:

  • wait until all ordered items are in stock and ready to ship
  • ship immediately all available items, and cancel the others (shipping costs will be recalculated)
  • modify the order (remove or add items to the order, shipping costs will be recalculated)
  • cancel the entire order.


  • Security and privacy policies

    This information can not be read as it travels over the internet.
    Our experience say, after many tens of thousands of SSL Secure Server orders processed with no one security issue, that your order at Alpimodel website will be much secure than using your credit card in the real world.
