I still have many models by Halinski, Fly Model, Modelcard, LS, Wilhelmshaven, etc., but since they are printed about 12 x 17 inches or larger, I'm at a loss on how to economically ship them. I appreciate USPS Priority Mail for its quick delivery, tracking numbers and insurance, but it gets extremely expensive when you price by weight rather than using flat rate packaging. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Media Mail??.......not fast but can save money. Pack well and insure.

Thanks to everyone who offered suggestions -- will investigate media mail, especially for the large format models.

Sale of Combo E is now pending. Combos A and B are still available.

Unfortunately, the post office counter service would not accept my paper models as Media Mail -- perhaps they weren't "educational" enough? :-/

They suggest Parcel Post for the large format kits that won't fit the Priority Mail Flat Rate boxes. Delivery would take 5-10 business days instead of 3, and they price by weight, so the next offerings will be smaller and probably won't be later combined into Combos. (I'm also investigating their insurance rates in case a mail handler can't read "DO NOT BEND!") But I will begin posting these kits soon -- probably in another thread to prevent confusion.

Combos A and B will still be shipped Priority Mail, as they fit the medium flat rate boxes.

Thanks!

FINAL NOTICE: Combo B has been sold, and Combo A broken up. While the remaining kits of Combo A may be re-packaged and offered again in the future, all other lots listed in this thread are sold. So this thread should be considered closed.

Thank you very much!
