We will refund and/or send you an invoice for the difference of the regular shipping & handling rate once we determine how much it will be. International shipping/handling rates include actual shipping costs and approximately $3 - $6 (depending on the size of the order) that covers shipping boxes, packaging materials (tape, bubble wrap, packing peanuts/paper) and package person's time. On average, the Canadian $24.99 and International $34.99 shipping amounts shown above is approximately what two or three average size 1/48 kits (WWII Fighters for example) will cost to ship.
