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.

After placing an order or sending an email enquiry, please check your junk mail/Spam folders if you haven't received a reply within a few minutes. Many thanks!

A note to customers in the EU: New tax regulations are in place since July 1st 2021 which mean that there is no tax-free import for low-value items any more. There will be VAT levied on ALL purchases, regardless how small so upon receiving your parcel you will have to pay VAT plus a handling charge by your local postal service. This shop is not set up for charging EU-based VAT at purchse and unfortunately won't be able to do so. 

A note to customers in the UK: This shop is set up for charging UK VAT upon purchase. It will be automatically added to your checkout total and parcels will be marked accordingly with the invoice on the outside of the parcel. There will be no additional charges upon receiving your parcel.

What's new

Update 16/06/2021:

The web shop is now back open! Casting work is progressing and stock being built. Please take into account that initially orders may take a little longer than usual to be shipped as it may take a couple of weeks to get back into the full swing of things and iron out any potential issues with the work flow in my new shop and also sending orders with the local postal service here. Thank you for your patience during the closure, I'm looking forward to your business.

Update 12/06/2021:

The move is now complete and I'm nearly done furnishing and setting up the new work shop as well. I planned to re-open on the 15th, but I may wait a couple more days to start some resin casting to test if my setup and arrangement of the benches and appliances is actually working. Please stay tuned for a re-opening by the 18th at the latest (fingers crossed...).

Update 21/05/2021:

The web shop is now closed. In order to start packing, move and then set up again in the new location the shop will remain closed until about mid June. You will find announcements here and on Facebook on the progress and exact date.

Update 17/05/2021:

Important announcement! As we are about to relocate home and business, Hypersonic Models is going to close temporarily. I plan to close the web shop this Friday (May 21st) and will probably remain closed for 3-4 weeks, depending on how well things are going with setting up the new work shop and getting things up and running. I will keep you posted here on exact dates and you can probably follow developments over on HM's Facebook page as well.

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.
