Welcome to Hypersonic Models, home of carefully researched and crafted aftermarket

sets for aircraft models.

Announcement

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

After placing an order or sending an email enquiry, please check your junk mail/Spam folders. Many email providers treat mail from "@hypersonicmodels.com" as junk mail (even though my domain has a totally clean bill). This is particularly important during the current Covid19 related situation where I may need to contact you regarding your order. Many thanks!

What's new

Update 01/05/2020:

There is now an English version of the latest Japan Post mail suspension list available: https://www.post.japanpost.jp/int/information/2020/0423_01_01_en.pdf

Update 23/04/2020:

Virus Update 4: Unfortunately it seems to get worse instead of better...Japan Post has now suspended delivery the US and a few other countries as well. Surfece (i.e. sea) mail would still work, but only as a parcel, not a "Small Parcel" or "ePacket" so the cost would be substantially higher (3x of a typical airmail small parcel) and with 2-3 months delivery times. Couriers like Yamato are also possible but also at very high cost. For the time being, deliveries to countries such as Canada, UK, Germany and France are still accepted but with long delays.

Update 09/04/2020:

Virus Update 3: Japan Post has informed me that deliveries to the US experience significant delays. It takes about two weeks before a parcel can leave Japan (due to restricted air capacity) and an unknown time for processing and delivery in the US. Mail is still accepted, but please calculate a minimum of 4-6 weeks before it *might* arrive.

Update 02/04/2020:

Virus Update 2: Japan Post has just issued a list of countries where international deliveries are currently suspended due to lack of air capacity or processing capacity in the receiving country. My web shop remains open, but I may have to cancel an order in case I'm unable to send it. I'm sorry for any inconvenience and of course I hope this whole situation will gradually begin to ease in a few weeks or months. The list can be found here: https://www.post.japanpost.jp/int/information/2020/0409_01_01_en.pdf?200415  .

Update 21/03/2020:

Virus Update: Hypersonic Models is operating as usual. The only thing to consider is that posting may take a bit longer with postal disruption and delays happening around the world. Thank you for stopping and shopping at Hypersonic Models in this testing time!

Update 26/02/2020:

Special notice to Canadian and Australian customers: the tracking service for my Recorded Delivery option does NOT work within these countries. The tracking number will show the dispatch and processing within Japan, but nothing beyond its border. Tracking also only works on the Japan Post website (link always included in my dispatch emails), but not on the Canadian or Australian post websites. I'm sorry about this, but there's not much I can do about it. The only alternative would be to send by EMS, but I don't think you'd be willing to pay the high price for it.
