VAT pay you at your Country, dklmrc is not responsible for this.

I was just wondering how much the VAT would be,
I did not expect DKLMRC to include it in the bill.

I think the follow Link will explain how much VAT:
https://www.gov.uk/goods-sent-from-abroad/tax-and-duty

The Postage to Germany for this tracks is rated 42,-€ (i think to GB it will be the same amount) = £36.20
£128.35 + £36.20 = £164.55
The standard VAR-Rate is 20%
You have to pay a VAT of £32.91

Complete is £197.46....

Im going to push the admin team for the inclusion of a poop emoji option in the panel on the right ..............for moments like this


ITS AUD$346.36 :O 8O :wtf:
$346!! for tracks, plus a fully catered charter flight in a Lear Jet(equivalent) for postage.
If I was to spend almost 2 grand on the tank model, and then think I could justify another lazy $350 for tracks ??
I would need to get really used to the feeling of shards of broken glass in my ass and a divorce lawyers bill racking up in 6 minute intervals :'(

That sounds really uncomfortable Herman.... ;D I know I bought the last set of stainless steel tracks for the Tamiya KV DKLM had and they were $224 shipped to the US, but they are steel track so I think they are worth it for steel. It will be the only set of tracks my KV-2 ever needs, but I also got rid of my wife long ago so no fear of another divorce in my future... :lolno:

Hi,
Everyone is free to decide for themselves whether they want to buy the tracks or not.
If it is too much money for you, then leave it alone, but don't cry here... :haha:
5 years ago, i buy a set of 1:16 Kingtiger tracks at Gießwerk, they cost 880,-€ 8O

I do think that is a lot of money BUT anyone who is prepared to spend £1,000 on a box of parts that you have to assemble and paint surely will not think twice about another £200 to finish the job :crazy:
I rather think that Taigen/Heng Long being very aware of the market will not be long in coming out with their own variants of the Cent and Taigens metal tracks are cheaper and as long lasting as any other :thumbup: so I shall leave my pocketbook alone for a little while longer.

I think that you will discover when you refer to your first folio edition of William Shakespeare's "A Merchant of Venice" that the Prince of Morocco actually says to Portia "All that GLISTERS is not gold" :haha:
But you knew that already really didnt you?

Shakespeare and B/S aside, that ###$&*@ is far to exorbitant and I believe, unjustifiable.

But, as Mr Jhamm puts it(this is by Kiwi-Translate)...............if you want it-suck it up............if you dont= stop moaning about it as it does not concern you ;) which is a fair call.
