Welcome to Hypersonic Models, home of carefully researched and crafted aftermarket sets for aircraft models.


Due to the extraordinary global situation related to Covid19, mail disruption, delay and total suspensions exist between Japan and many countries. The web shop remains open, but please be aware that delivery may not happen in the same timely manner as usual. Please check the latest information in the "What's New" section below.

What's new

Update 25/04/2021:

Problem alert! I have made a mistake and undersized the ARN-101 antenna pod contained in the F-4E Slat Conversion Set (HMR 48039). A new part has already been designed and is being cast. Please see this pic for comparison:

All new HMR 48039 sets will have the new part from now on. But I also have a solution for those who already bought a set. If you place a new order, you will get a new ARN-101 part for every slat yet you ordered previously. Please notify me though, by email, PM, Facebook etc. Those who bought the slat set but won't make a new purchase can get the new part too. However, I'm very sorry but I can't send it totally for free. I can probably get away with sending it in a nornal letter so I'd like to ask you for a p&p constribution of ¥200 for every shipment. I think I can send up to 4 parts in a letter, after that I may charge more because I'd have to send it as a small parcel. My retail partners have been informed too and will have batches of replacement parts. My apologies once again, thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Update 05/04/2021:

I have re-done the whole postage section. New area zones as well as price tiers have been created to better reflect the recent (dramatic) changes at Japan Post. Japan Post has put the USA into a delivery and price zone of its own (possibly owing to the steep price increases at the US Postal Service) and I replicated this here as well.

Update 25/03/2021:

A VAT threshold to the near equivalent of £135 has now been set up for UK customers. Hoping that it will work as designed, orders with a value blow will be charged VAT through my shop while orders above will not (instead you will be charged VAT plus a handling charge by Royal Mail or Parcel Force when the parcel arrives).

Update 20/02/2021:

Air mail has become available again to range of countries. The latest update from Japan Post can be found here. I have updated the delivery/destination list in the web shop accordingly. Many thanks!

Update 09/02/2021:

I have now enabled ordering from the UK again. Upon ordering, you should see 20% VAT added to the total and listed on the invoice. There is also a ¥19,000 (close to £135 after conversion loss etc.) VAT threshold build in which will hopefully work in the way that order above that value will have no VAT added as this will then be charged at the UK border, as before. These changes are all provisional in the hope that things will work smoothly. If not, I have to take the UK off the list again and re-think…
