very expensive if your going to import just be very careful of the cost as you might be up for 5%import duty plus 10% gst if you go over the $1000 dont forget its the landed price so with the $ only on 70cent you cant go over $680.00 us including postage

Yes I thought postage wasn't part of the threshold. It may have changed since I got mine, but I got my Baja SSfrom tower it was $1100 all up but costume couldn't put duty tax on it cause the actual item was under $1000. It was back when tower had the $200 discount codes

Shipping is not included in the 1k AUD threshold, but if you go over the 1k threshold they tax you on the total including shipping. Had this happen a few weeks ago bang head

Thanks Guys for the responses and advise

I'm in the freight industry and aware about 1k thresholds etc. Customs are checking a lot of the under 1K shipments as too many have under declared the value and imported without paying duties & GST, anyhow I deal will all these queries every day lol

Also just to let you know that you shouldn't be paying any duties on reduced Sized (scale) model assembly Kits as they are Duty Free.

Anyhow if anyone does want some info on importing, Give me a shout

Thanks Andy

Ok decided against 5SC as too expensive to ship in.

Gonna go for Baja 5B SS Kit and get a 5T conversion Kit.

Anyone know where I can get the 5B SS for a good price?

Many Thanks
Andy
