UPDATE 18 April 201
As virtualy no other company in the UK seems to be adhering to this and therefore sending paints etc through the post we are now going to do the same and start re-sending paints via Royal Mail. The option has now been added back to your shopping cart.
Paint and other dangerous goods
Due to new postage restrictions regarding so called "dangerous" goods we are now unable to ship any goods of this type outside the UK.
Any parcels containing even one of these items are being destroyed regardless of other contents by the UK Post Services as well as receiving post offices
This includes Tamiya acrylics and Humbrol / Revell / Model Master enamels and several other items all indicated by "UK only on our website.
For UK orders all these items can still be shipped by parcelforce only and this will be a option during checkout. Even if you only need one paint, sorry.
This is totally outside our control and a draconian measure for small pots of paint. There seems to be mis information regarding a limit of 150ml, but having checked this and having had parcels destroyed with only one tinlet in we know this to be incorrect.
We are looking at aleternatives for overseas customers but these will be a courier option and presumably very expensive especially outside europe.
We cannot comment on what other modelling sites are doing (please dont tell us xxx sends them ok) or why, all we can go by is clear indication from the post office and the experience of many "destroyed" parcels.
