Re: Shipping finished models
Yes, I've shipped more than a few. Both with and without cases. I always double box them, for starters. The model goes in the first box, then that box goes into a second box, packaged securely with styrofoam peanuts.
When I had a local shipping place pack for me, 2 out of the three models I sent through them were damaged. Once I started doing it myself, no problems. I usually ship via UPS.
Contact me off line and I can share some photos

Has anyone tried shipping a build ship model using a courier like Fed-Ex? Is it too risky? A friend of mine's father served aboard a Flower class corvette and I want to send a 350 one I'm building to her.
