Just seen on 4h model that a new stern part model from the Druid will be released by Chinese manufactorer Unicorn.
Model is 71 x 54 x 76 mm. A beauty. See plenty of pictures on the 4hmodel.com home page.
56_2000_550.jpg 55_2000_2000.jpg 60_2000_2000.jpg 58_2000_2000.jpg looks like a "great" model to me, and they state a price of of 187 yuan which is +/- € 24,- or usd 30,-.

hello Maarten ,Uwe and others, a question if you buy these models in China or Taiwan do not run the risk that when it arrives the customs will not pass because there is no VAT and you then have to pay a fine that is so high that it does not bother to buy them there, because I know from experience that in Belgium customs are very strict on things that come from these countries? Have you already experienced that when buying in these countries?

Yes off course you Have to pay the customs and the VAT in your home country, if th custom office is checking your parcel. For my Salamandre I had o pay the VAT of 20% (in Austria) on th e amount of the custom declaration which is filled out by the seller. No custom duties and fees by itself for toys and kits. You are importing something from China......these are the regulations in EU.....

But what I forgot.......the same is for kits I would buy from US or other countries outside of the EU !
So it is not Only China.....

Hi Uwe,

Fully correct. I had to pay vat for my rc from China.
Positive thing is that in most cases they put a lower amount on the proforma invoice which saves you a lot of tax.
